Cytek Biosciences Ships 100th Advanced Flow Cytometry System

Company Ramping up Production to Meet Increasing Global Demand

FREMONT, Calif., Dec. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cytek Biosciences Inc., the preeminent provider of innovative flow cytometry solutions, has marked a significant milestone: the company has shipped 100 of its advanced flow cytometry systems. First introduced in June of last year, Cytek’s systems are rapidly gaining traction with scientists around the globe – giving them the ability to obtain deeper biological insights from a single sample and accelerate their fields of research.

A technique used to detect and measure the physical and chemical characteristics of a population of cells or particles, flow cytometry has become an invaluable tool in research and clinical studies with various biomedical and therapeutic applications such as investigating the role of the body’s immune system in fighting cancer, diagnosing leukemia and lymphoma, and detecting minimal residual disease in organ transplant patients. While the benefits offered by flow cytometry are well known throughout the scientific community, adoption has lagged due its cost-prohibitive, workflow-intensive nature.

“At Cytek, we are focused on far more than just selling units – we are fueling a movement,” noted Dr. Wenbin Jiang, CEO of Cytek Biosciences. “We’re on a mission to make the advanced instrumentation that was once available to very few scientists accessible to more researchers, and this latest achievement is a strong indicator that our mission is resonating strongly with the scientific community.”

Cytek’s systems provide ease of use, an unusually high performance-to-price ratio, experimental design flexibility and high-quality data. Additionally, its three laser flow cytometer makes more than 24 colors possible. The company is fast becoming the go-to flow cytometry source for scientists in immunology, immuno-oncology, leukemia and lymphoma labs, cancer/stem cell research, and extra-cellular vesicle research. In fact, robust global sales have led Cytek to ramp up manufacturing and expand its operations team in order to keep up with demand.

“The sale of our one hundredth system in less than 18 months is an indication that our technology is hitting the sweet spot for price and performance,” continued Jiang. “We plan to keep this momentum going by continuing to extend and accelerate our reach and capabilities.”
