System overview

The Cytek Aurora leverages full spectrum technology to provide 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.

  • 5 spatially separated lasers: Ultra-violet (355nm - 20mW), Violet (405nm - 100mW), Blue (488nm - 50mW), Yellow Green (561nm - 50mW) and Red (640nm - 80mW)
  • 3 scatter channels: 488nm FSC, 405nm SSC, 488nm SSC
  • 64 fluorescent detectors:
    • UV detector: 16 channels with optimized bandwidth from 365-829nm
    • V detector: 16 channels with optimized bandwidth from 420-829nm
    • B detector: 14 channels with optimized bandwidth from 498-829nm
    • YG detector: 10 channels with optimized bandwidth from 567-829nm
    • R detector: 8 channels with optimized bandwidth from 652-829nm
  • Fluidics
    • Vacuum-based fluidics system: manual acquisition from multiple tube formats
    • In-line flow meter: bead-less absolute cell count, bubble and clog detection
  • Automated Sample Loader (ASL)
    • with an orbital shaker
    • compatible with 96-well plates , 96-deep well plates and 40-tube racks

If you need high parameter cell analysis, check the BD FACSymphony A5 SE.

If you need a multicolor analysis of less then 16, 13 or 4 parameters, check also the BD LSRFortessa X20, the BD LSRFortessa or BD Accuri C6 Plus.
