Before I get to many reminders, sorry I forgot to mention 

Advanced Analytical http://www.aati-us.com/
AES Chemunex http://www.aeschemunex.com/Pages/cytometers.html
Biodetect http://www.biodetect.biz/products/mc.shtml
Bentley http://www.bentleyinstruments.com/ibc_fr.html
Cytobuoy http://www.cytobuoy.com/
Foss Electric

with flow instruments out on the market for microbiological
applications. The list is still not complete but it depends a bit on
what you want to do.

Good luck

If you'd like something fancier, the InFlux cytometer/sorter from
Cytopeia (now part of BD) can be configured to work with bacteria and
even viruses; it has very good scatter sensitivity for both forward and
side scatter measurements, as does the Apogee.
