Cytation Hybrid Multi-Mode Reader
Although your lab may only be working with multi-mode workflows now, assay demands may change in the future. Cytation’s modularity offers the ability to add automated digital microscopy to the multi-mode system to adapt as your research requirements change.
Patented Hybrid Technology™ optics with the sensitivity of filters and flexibility of monochromators
Cytation 5 features a patented, hybrid optical design, with filter-based fluorescence optics for high transmission and high sensitivity, and monochromator optics for convenience and assay flexibility. Multiple fluorescence measurement modes include fluorescence intensity, time-resolved fluorescence and fluorescence polarization.
Variable bandwidth monochromators optimize fluorophore detection
Cytation 5 features monochromators with variable bandwiths from 9 nm to 50 nm, in 1 nm increments. Variable bandwidths allow you to optimize detection conditions for fluorophores that have unique excitation or emission parameters, for example, a narrow Stokes shift, to provide better performance than conventional monochromators.
Laser-based excitation in Cytation 5 offers the power required to get great sensitivity and fast reading speeds, which are critical for Alpha assays.
Peltier Cooling Module maintains environmental stability for uncompromised assay integrity
The Peltier Cooling Module promotes a rapid interior cool down after incubated processes, to allow efficient switching between multiple applications without unwanted temperature influences. For temperature sensitive assays typically run at ambient, or room temperature, the Cooling Module maintains environmental stability within Cytation, allowing < 1 °C rise in ambient temperature, regardless of external and internal temperature fluctuation.
