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.
Up to 40 colors demonstrated including fluorochromes with emission spectra in close proximity to each other.
Sensitivity redefined using state of the art optics and low noise electronics.
No changing optical filters for any fluorochrome. Use any commercially available fluorochrome excited by the onboard lasers.
Transfer assays with ease, experience automated drop delay, clog detection, sort monitoring, and sort reporting.
