Cytation™ 1 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader combines fluorescence and high contrast brightfield imaging with conventional multi-mode detection 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
