FREMONT, Calif., May 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cytek Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: CTKB), a leading cell analysis solutions company, announced today that it has shipped its 100th Cytek Aurora CS system. This milestone is a clear indication of the company’s continuing momentum – and of the scientific community’s desire for Full Spectrum Profiling™ (FSP™) technology that streamlines workflows, accelerates discoveries and maximizes efficiency.
Launched in June 2021, the Cytek Aurora CS is built on the same FSP™ technology comprising Cytek’s Aurora cell analysis system. It delivers high-sensitivity capabilities at the single-cell level to resolve and sort even the most challenging cell populations – regardless of assay complexity or inherent autofluorescence. With the Aurora CS, researchers can easily transfer assays from analyzer to sorter without redesigning panels or reconfiguring detector systems, allowing for resolution and isolation of the same cell populations. Live cells or other particles can be deposited in microtiter plates or tubes for downstream studies, such as single-cell RNA sequencing, proteomics and cell biology. Assays that have been designed and optimized on a conventional flow cytometer can also easily be run on the Cytek Aurora CS.
“This milestone is a testament to the fact that our FSP technology – namely, flexibility, autofluorescence extraction, reagent combinations, and one configuration for all applications – is highly sought after,” said Todd Garland, chief commercial officer for Cytek Biosciences. “From the Cytek® Cloud to cFluor® reagent kits to our exceptional technical applications support teams and much more, Cytek is firing on all fronts. The market is embracing our ecosystem of complete solutions, and we will continue to build on our successes that advance the next generation of cell analysis.”
Cytek’s mission to provide a complete cell analysis solution to customers has continued to accelerate in recent months. By acquiring the Luminex flow cytometry and imaging business earlier this year, Cytek expanded its core instrument offerings and broadened the market and research areas it services. Additionally, the introduction of new cFluor pre-optimized assays and expanded reagent portfolios further enables scientists to advance their research with downstream applications, gain deeper insights, and fast-track discovery.
The company’s achievements are reflected in the over 1,150 peer-reviewed publications referencing use of Cytek solutions in research ranging from immuno-oncology to infectious diseases and immunology. Citations for these publications can be accessed at https://cytekbio.com/blogs/publications.
