The new Cytation™ 7 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader from BioTek Instruments combines an automated upright microscope, an inverted microscope, and multi-mode microplate detection in a single instrument. This combination of microscopes and multi-mode reading enables applications that would typically require multiple instruments.
The inverted microscope supports fluorescence, brightfield, and color brightfield imaging. The magnification range of 1.25x to 60x allows researchers to capture and analyze large objects as well as intracellular details with ease. An upright reflected and transmitted light microscope offers up to 8x magnification for applications such as ELISpot, slide scanning with ROI detection, and colony counting.
The multi-mode module in Cytation 7 features quadruple monochromator-based fluorescence, absorbance and luminescence. Temperature and gas control, plus variable shaking provide an ideal environment for live cell assays. Gen5™ Software controls the instrument for precise, accurate image and data capture as well as powerful data processing for quantitative and qualitative analysis.
Cytation 7 may be integrated with BioTek’s BioSpa™ 8 Automated Incubator, enabling full imaging or multi-mode workflow automation for up to eight microplates at once.
