Cytek Biosciences, Fremont, Calif, has unveiled a new family of proprietary flow cytometry reagents. These cFluorM reagents, short for “Cytek Fluorochrome,” are the culmination of years of experience understanding full spectrum cytometry and how fluorophores react together in multicolor panels. Cytek’s cFluor reagents are all validated on its Cytek Aurora and Cytek Northern Lights cell analysis systems to ensure optimal performance for its users in a multicolor environment. Cytek’s cell analysis instruments use a unique optical and electronics design to reveal the full spectrum of each dye. This technology has enabled Cytek’s scientists to not only fully characterize thousands of commercially available reagents, but also to identify and evaluate dyes and antibody conjugates that work optimally with full spectrum analysis on Cytek’s flow cytometers. The first batch of reagents from Cytek—cFluor YG584, cFluor B548, and cFluor R710—are now available for research use. Each of these reagents gives Cytek’s users the ability to reveal more from their full spectrum panel with a new option excitable by the yellow-green, blue, and red lasers, respectively. Other dyes in the cFluor family will be coming soon, with demonstrated ability to work in a pre-optimized panel. “Starting with our full spectrum instruments, and now with our cFluor reagents, we are committed to redefining what is possible in flow cytometry and offering a total solution to our users,” says Wenbin Jiang, PhD, CEO of Cytek Biosciences. “Among our users, 30+ color panels are now more commonplace, which would have been inconceivable just two short years ago. We are now focused on empowering them so that they can go even further with their unique, state-of-the-art cell analyzers, all with greater ease and shorter time to results.” For more information, visit Cytek Biosciences.
