Cytek Biosciences Enhanced Small Particle Detection for Cell Analysis Systems

Cytek Biosciences has introduced an Enhanced Small Particle (ESP) detection option for its flagship Cytek Aurora and Cytek Northern Lights cell analysis systems. This optional upgrade enables the company's systems to detect subcellular materials, including extracellular vesicles, with high resolution and sensitivity, the company said. Flow cytometers typically have been unable to detect particles smaller than 500 nm, the company noted, limiting their use to the study of cells and larger particles. Now, particles as small as 70 nm can be studied label-free on Cytek's Full Spectrum Profiling (FSP) analyzers, allowing researchers to characterize the full emission spectra of small particles.
