" Aurora spectral flow cytometer is a high performance system enabling versatile immunological experiments. Its spectral unmixing capabilities and easy setup, without optical filters exchange, enables easy operation and multi-parametric analysis. With more than 20 parameters analyzed within one sample, Cytek Aurora brings our research to a next level"

Dr Mojca Benčina

"We experienced the advantages of spectral cytometry to traditional technology. The use fluorochromes unique signatures is a great approach to easily discriminate certain events including getting rid of potential contaminating dyes. The possibility of creating and saving templates with SpectroFlo software makes the evaluation much easier, especially in cases of complicated gating strategy. Templates pre-defined by Cytek with ready to use commercial kits also come in handy. We have been using the Cytek Northern Lights for several months now, we are really happy with the performances and easy of use."

Dr Tibor Vaszko

National Institute of Oncology, Budapest, Hungary

"Cytek Aurora is an excellent cytometer for all scientists that want to perform deep immunophenotyping experiments. For us it is an essential tool that enables us to go easily above 30 parameters in our flow cytometry panels and therefore allows us to study the immune system with an unprecedented resolution. Furthermore, our users love the Aurora, thanks to the easy-to-use SpectroFlow software"

Northern Lights - Cytek Biosciences

34 colors, three lasers, CE-IVD cytometer

A new clinical flow cytometer that shifts the paradigm in what scientists expect to see in performance from an affordable three laser system. Cytek Northern Lights spectral flow cytometer incorporates the same groundbreaking technologies as its older sister, the Cytek Aurora, plus, it is ready for your routine diagnostic use . Like Aurora, its optical design and unmixing algorithm give 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 excellent sensitivity and resolution. Flat-top beam profiles, combined with a uniquely designed fluidics system, translate to outstanding performance at high sample flow rates. The end result is a system that sits in a sweet spot for scientists that have budgeted for a one to three laser system, but desire the ability to run panels of higher complexity.

SpectroFlo software offers an intuitive workflow from QC to data analysis with technology-enabling tools that simplify running applications.The Cytek team has reimagined what user should expect from an affordable cytometer and has delivered an instrument that brings the benefits of full spectrum cytometry to more scientists.
