Cytek Biosciences Aurora Flow Cytometry System

Cytek Biosciences has launched its Aurora advanced flow cytometry system. The multiparametric system is capable of detecting more than 20 colors using three excitation lasers and 50 channels. It has the ability to detect any fluorescence emission in the 400-900 nm range without having to change optical filters, depending on the laser excitation wavelength, the company said. Aurora's optical design and unmixing algorithm enables the use of a wide array of dyes, including those with highly overlapping spectra.
