The Biotek Cytation 1: cell imaging multi-mode reader

Cytation 1 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader

Cytation 1 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader

The Cytation 1 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader is the latest addition to our patented line of combination plate readers and imagers. Never before has there been a product with so much value & flexibility, with fantastic features added to the new Gen5 3.03 software.

The Cytation 1 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader can be configured with automated digital microscopy or conventional microplate detection, or both. Magnification from 1.25x to 60x for fluorescence and high contrast brightfield, temperature control to 45°C, CO²/O² gas control and on-board shaking, supports a wide range of whole organism to intracellular imaging, including live cell assays.  This unique, patented design provides quantitative phenotypic cellular information with well-based quantitative data in an affordable, compact system.

The Cytation 1’s multi-mode detection covers a wide range of applications in 6 to 1,536-well microplates with its sensitive filter-based fluorescence, luminescence and monochromator-based UV-VIS absorbance.

Optional hardware features include Dual Reagent Injectors for rapid inject image/ read assays and automation with the BioStack™ microplate stackers or the BioSpa™ Automated Incubator.
