New spectral cytometer in facility

Cytek Aurora

The Aurora from Cytek Biosciences is a novel spectral analyzer incorporating a unique combination of patent-pending innovative technologies and has the capability of measuring the entire emission spectra of the fluorescent dyes excited by multiple lasers.

It is equipped with five lasers (355nm, 405, 488, 561 and 638nm ) and can detect up to 64 fluorescence channel (and 3 scatter parameters). Samples can be acquired in tube or 96well mode.

Analysis is done via the SpectroFlo™ software which is capable of live unmixing during acquisition and extracting autofluorescence.
