Cytek Biosciences 25-Color Immunoprofiling Assay

Cytek Biosciences has launched a 25-color immunoprofiling assay to enable a more comprehensive understanding of the human immune system through full-spectrum flow cytometry. The assay is optimized for use with Cytek's Aurora full-spectrum flow cytometer equipped with violet, blue, yellow-green, and red lasers, and provides a turnkey solution for identifying major human immune subpopulations for T, B, and NK cells; as well as monocytes, dendritic cells, and basophils. To support the new assay, Cytek released an 18-color cFluor reagents kit that can be used with seven reagents from other suppliers.
