High Level Overview
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.

The Aurora CS system’s implementation of full spectrum flow cytometry enables the use of autofluorescence extraction to further improve data clarity. Certain sample types, such as yeast and tumor samples, present the challenge of high autofluorescence. For these challenging applications involving highly autofluorescent particles, let the software's autofluorescence extraction tool bring new levels of resolution. SEE POSTER
The ability to generate high quality multi-parametric data is key to successfully utilize data dimensionality and 2-D visualization algorithms. Run the OMIP-069 (PMID: 32830910) 40-color deep immunophenotyping panel on the Cytek Aurora system, and sort it on the Cytek Aurora CS with similar performance. SEE DATASHEET
In-Depth Functional Sorting
In-Depth Purity Sorting
To demonstrate the Cytek Aurora CS’s capabilities made possible by its advanced electronics design, a 28-color human deep T-cell immunophenotyping panel was transferred from the Cytek Aurora and 6 low frequency T-cell and NK cell subsets shown below were sorted with a 100 μm nozzle and checked for purity. Download the brochure to see the sort results.
When sorting cells for downstream experimental assays, it is crucial that the sorted cells remain viable and functional post-sorting. To demonstrate this capability with the Cytek Aurora CS, human PBMCs were prepared and sorted 4-ways with a 70 μm nozzle to collect CD4+ effector memory, CD8+ effector memory, TCRγδ T cells, and NK cells using the gating strategy below. Sort gates are outlined in orange.
After sorting was completed, the cells were rested for 2 hours in an incubator, then stimulated with PMA and ionomycin in the presence of BFA, monensin, and CD107a, and next stained with 8 different intracellular markers. Download the brochure to see the results.
