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.


Key Features

  • So Many Colors

Up to 40 colors demonstrated including fluorochromes with emission spectra in close proximity to each other.

  • Exceptional Sensitivity

Sensitivity redefined using state of the art optics and low noise electronics.

  • A New Level of Flexibility

No changing optical filters for any fluorochrome. Use any commercially available fluorochrome excited by the onboard lasers.

  • Seamless Sorting

Transfer assays with ease, experience automated drop delay, clog detection, sort monitoring, and sort reporting.
