BioTek's Cytation 7 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader Named ‘Best New Drug Discovery & Development Product’ at Scientists’ Choice Awards

May 5, 2021

BioTek Instruments is pleased to announce that the Cytation 7 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader was awarded ‘Best New Drug Discovery & Development Product’ of 2020. The honor was voted upon by SelectScience members across the world and celebrated at the 2021 Scientists’ Choice Awards online awards ceremony.

The Cytation 7 combines automated digital upright and inverted widefield microscopy with versatile multi-mode detection in a single compact unit. This patented design enables transmitted and reflected light applications, and along with Gen5 software, provides information on cell morphology, localization of signal, cell counting, object identification and quantification. Cytation 7 is also able to perform standard multimode plate reader assays.

The upright microscope in Cytation 7 enables application workflows such as ELISpot, colony counting, rapid slide scanning and ROI identification. The inverted microscope delivers high quality images and data analysis for live cell applications including 3D imaging, cell viability and migration assays.

The quadruple monochromator-based fluorescence, absorbance, and luminescence microplate reading capabilities further establish the Cytation 7 as a versatile, multifunctional tool for researchers to obtain publication-quality images and data.

Cytation 7 is part of the Cytation product family. The Cytation portfolio supports endless live cell and biochemical assays through a wide range of imaging and multi-mode plate reading capabilities and other powerful features. Along with powerful visualization and analysis, each Cytation is modular and configurable to suit any laboratory’s needs and budget.
