AGBL offers flow cytometry devices, reagents and cell sorters from Cytek Biosciences Inc. Cytek® Biosciences Inc. is a leading manufacturer & supplier of spectral flow cytometry products & services. The different devices offered from Cytek includes:
The Cytek Aurora leverages full spectrum technology to provide unprecedented flexibility to scientists, enabling the use of a wide array of new fluorochrome combinations without reconfiguring the system for each application. The Aurora system delivers high-resolution data at the single-cell level to resolve the most challenging cell populations, such as cells with high autofluorescence or low levels of expression of key biomarkers, regardless of assay complexity. With up to 5 lasers and 64 fluorescent detectors, the Cytek® Aurora can capture the entire emission spectrum from each fluorochrome. This makes it possible to now run 40 colors in one tube, a first for 40 fluorescence-based flow cytometry.
Cytek Northern Lights
The Cytek Northern Lights™ is a full spectrum flow cytometer that shifts the paradigm in what scientists expect to see in performance from an affordable one-to-three laser system. The Cytek® Northern Lights incorporates the same groundbreaking full spectrum technologies as the Cytek® Aurora. This means that with just the blue laser, you can run 9-color panels. And with upgradability to 3 lasers and 25+ color panels, the Cytek® Northern Lights allows researchers to truly maximize the value from each laser.
Cytek Aurora CS
The Cytek Aurora CS was designed to leverage the paradigm-shifting technology onboard the Cytek Aurora system and deliver the sorting capabilities you have come to expect in a high-end sorter.
Like Aurora, the CS provides the benefits of Full Spectrum Profiling (FSP™) technology. Its optical design and unmixing algorithm provide scientists remarkable flexibility, enabling the use of a wide array of new fluorochrome combinations without reconfiguring the system for each application. The state-of-the-art optics and low-noise electronics provide high-resolution, high-content and high sensitivity.
The result is a system that delivers high resolution at the single cell level to resolve the most challenging cell populations, such as cells with high autofluorescence or low levels of expression of key biomarkers, regardless of assay complexity, and to isolate live cells for downstream studies.
Flow Cytometry Reagents
Cytek’s experience designing highly multiparametric panels has led to a deeper understanding of how fluorochromes react together in increasingly complex fluorescent experiments. We are now applying this expertise and understanding identify and evaluate dyes and antibody conjugates optimized for full spectrum analysis on Cytek flow cytometers. Based on this expertise Cytek has developed their own fluorochromes called Cytek cFluor™ Reagents.
Cytek acquired Tonbo Biosciences which produces flowcytometry reagents and antibodies. Tonbo antibodies and flowcytometry reagents are also available from Cytek.
