5 Laser Cytek Aurora

The Flow Cytometry Core Facility has a Cytek Aurora Cytometer available for use in TAC S617A. The Cytek Aurora leverages full spectrum technology to provide unprecedented flexibility, enabling the use of a wide array of new fluorochrome combinations without reconfiguring the system for each application. The Aurora delivers high-resolution data 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.
