Great instrument, and super helpful customer support!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area: Analyze in vitro growth assays

"While this instrument and corresponding analysis software is pretty user-friendly and easy to use, we have ran into a few questions when setting up new assays. The customer support has been amazingly helpful, from both our local sales representative to the regional customer support team. Both of them have been very prompt in responding to our questions, and really make you feel like they want you to get the most out of their instrument."

Very good instrument. Expensive but will be worth the money in the long run.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Antimicrobial assay, anticancer assay, enzyme inhibition assays, phytochemical profiling

"The product is very useful for what we want to do. The learning curve is simple which makes its use easy for undergraduate students. Having the imaging capabilities has moved our research and teaching labs to the next level. We expect that the modularity of the instrument we benefit us as we can add new functionalities as future needs develop."

Cytation™ 1 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader eliminates the complexities of multi-mode detection without compromising performance.

Cytation™ 1 can be configured with optional fluorescence and high contrast brightfield cellular visualization without the expense and complexity commonly associated with other digital microscopy systems. This unique, patented design provides both quantitative phenotypic cellular information with well-based quantitative data. Cytation 1's multi-mode detection module includes high sensitivity filter-based fluorescence and a monochromator system for UV-Vis absorbance. Temperature control and shaking are standard; CO2/O2 control and reagent injectors are available. BioTek’s powerful Gen5 software makes image capture and plate reading easy.

  • Affordable, patented, quantitative digital microscopy and optional multi-mode microplate detection
  • Augmented Microscopy™ using Gen5 software for seamless image capture to quantitative publication ready data with no extensive training required
  • Fluorescence and high contrast brightfield imaging from 1.25x to 60x to capture large regions of interest to 60x or intracellular details
  • Affordable automation: automated XY stage, focus, exposure, image capture and LED intensity
  • Cell friendly design - 4-Zone incubation to 45°C with Condensation Control, CO2/O2 control, angled injectors and lidded plate handling
  • High performance filter-based fluorescence detection with convenience of monochromator based UV-Vis absorbance

With the ability to collect phenotypic and quantitative data in a single experiment, Cytation 1 is a powerful tool for imaging applications, and conventional multi-mode applications:

  • Live cell imaging
  • Label-free cell counting
  • Multi-mode reader applications
  • Immunofluorescence
  • Phenotypic assays
