Cytation™ 5 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader combines automated digital widefield microscopy with conventional multi-mode microplate reading in a unique, patented design. The imaging components and multi-mode optical modules are independent and physically separate within the instrument, ensuring optimized performance without compromise! With Cytation 5, you can capture rich phenotypic cellular information and well-based quantitative data in a single experiment. Cytation 5, along with Gen5 software, automates the workflow from image capture, processing, and analysis to create publication-ready images and data. Augmented Microscopy™ is the combination of all of these features in one compact system.

Modular digital microscopy and multi-mode detection, each with independent optical components
Patented Hybrid optics: sensitivity of filters, flexibility of monochromator
Variable bandwidth monochromators optimize fluorophore detection
100 mW Alpha Laser: Speed and performance-based excitation for Alpha assays
CO2/O2 control, incubation and shaking for live cell assays
Label-free cell counting for cell proliferation studies


With the ability to collect phenotypic and quantitative data in a single experiment, Cytation 5 is a powerful tool for imaging applications, and conventional multi-mode applications.
