Cytek Biosciences Unveils Cytek Orion™: The First Automated Cocktail Preparation Instrument for Flow Cytometry

Friday, December 22, 2023

Cytek Biosciences,  has introduced the Cytek Orion™ reagent cocktail preparation system, a state-of-the-art automated solution for streamlining flow cytometry workflows. This cutting-edge technology simplifies laboratory processes, ensuring consistent experimental results, saving time, and reducing the likelihood of errors. Manual preparation of reagent cocktails for flow cytometry, especially in multi-color panels, is a time-consuming and error-prone task. The Cytek Orion system, a compact and user-friendly automated instrument, eliminates manual preparation, enabling lab technicians to effortlessly manage up to 60 individual reagent antibody conjugates.

Key Features:

  • Accommodates volumes ranging from 0.5 mL to 2.0 mL in antibody-conjugate tubes.
  • Permits the addition of up to 60 individual reagents per cocktail.
  • The aspirator precisely adds 4 uL to 200 uL of reagent at the correct volume and concentration.
  • SpectroPrep™ software stores reagent information for future use and provides an audit trail.
  • Users can run up to three different reagent cocktails in a single session.
  • Customizable cocktail recipes can be saved for reuse, or users can opt for pre-programmed recipes for Cytek kits and assays.

Key Benefits:

  • Walk-away automation reduces hands-on time in the lab.
  • Mitigates costs associated with human errors in cocktail preparation.
  • Decreases the risk of repetitive motion injuries during the preparation of high-color assays.
