Cytek Biosciences Inc., launched its new Aurora advanced flow cytometry system.
The company said its latest product offers improved capabilities beyond those found in some higher-priced systems.
“Cytek has evolved to address an unmet need,” noted Dr. Wenbin Jiang, CEO of Cytek Biosciences. “With Aurora, more labs will have the ability to obtain deeper biological insights from a single sample. This will have a significant impact on research and clinical application fields such as immunology, oncology and systems biology.”
Aurora enables a 20+ color capability, using three excitation lasers and 50 channels.
Innovative enhancements include excitation optics and compact semiconductor detector modules with high quantum efficiency.
These allow for the implementation of more detection channels per laser than conventional flow cytometry systems.
Depending on the laser excitation wavelength, this permits detection of any fluorescence emission in the 400-900nm range without having to change optical filters.
Aurora’s optical design and unmixing algorithm enable the use of a wide array of dyes, including those with highly overlapping spectra. This is not possible using conventional cytometry, according to the company.
Aurora will be demonstrated at the industry’s premier flow cytometry conference, CYTO 2017, in Boston from June 10-14 at booth #86.
Aurora joins Cytek’s existing lineup of flow cytometry solutions, all of which are backed by Cytek’s comprehensive service plan offerings. For more information, visit www.cytekbio.com
