Partnership will expand reagent portfolios

Flow cytometry

Cytek Biosciences and Bio-Rad Laboratories have entered into a strategic development partnership.  

Under the terms of the agreement, Bio-Rad’s new StarBright Dyes will be available to Cytek to develop and commercialise reagent products to support high-parameter applications on Aurora and Northern Lights flow cytometry systems. 

StarBright Dyes have been designed to be stable with superior brightness, narrow excitation and emission characteristics for minimised spillover and improved resolution of specific cell populations. 

The dyes will provide a wider variety of colour options for highly multiplexed panel design and application development.  

Cytek plans to develop and optimise single vial reagents and multicolour panels using StarBright Dyes for its Cytek Full Spectrum Profiling instruments. 

Hilary Latham, Marketing Director for Bio-Rad, commented: “We are proud to team with Cytek to bring more high-quality reagent choices on both violet and UV channels to researchers.”
