Cytek Aurora Spectral Cytometer

The Cytek Aurora is equipped with five lasers – UV (355nm, violet (405nm) blue (488nm), yellow (561nm) and red (640nm), three scattering channels, and up to 64 fluorescence detectors. Spectral fingerprints of each fluorochrome are recorded and then unmixed in a highly multicolor experiment. As a result of this approach, combinations of fluorochromes that previously were incompatible to run together by conventional flow cytometric methods are now possible with this technology. As long as a fluorochrome’s spectral fingerprint is distinct from another they can be unmixed. This enables panel design of >36 colours possible.
