Full Spectrum Flow Cytometry for All

The Cytek Northern Lights is a full spectrum flow cytometer that shifts the paradigm in what scientists expect to see in performance from an affordable one-to-three laser system. Cytek Northern Lights incorporates the same groundbreaking technologies as the Aurora system, allowing for a wide array of new fluorochrome combinations without reconfiguring your system for each application. The Northern Lights, with its easy-to-use workflow is the highly valuable full spectrum flow solution for everyday research applications.


Key Features

  • High Value

Upgradeable from one laser and nine colors to three lasers and 24 colors, there is a Northern Lights configuration to fit your needs

  • Remarkable Sensitivity

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