Cytation 5 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader
Cytation™ 5 combines automated digital microscopy and conventional microplate detection in a configurable, upgradable platform. The microscopy module offers up to 60x magnification in fluorescence, brightfield, high contrast brightfield, color brightfield and phase contrast for maximum applications reach. The multi-mode detection modules include filter- and monochromator-based fluorescence detection, luminescence and UV-Vis absorbance detection. Gen5™ software provides complete control over all imaging and data capture, plus powerful image and data analysis.

Seahorse XF Imaging and Normalization System
Cytation 5 is a key component of Agilent Technologies’ Seahorse XF Imaging and Normalization System. XFe Analyzers simultaneously measure the two major cellular energy-producing pathways, mitochondrial respiration and glycolysis, in live cells and in real time. The integrated solution with Cytation 5 combines cellular analysis and imaging for an intuitive workflow to streamline XF data interpretation.
Cytation 5 extends the legacy of BioTek's multi-mode plate readers with a modular and upgradable imaging mode. Imaging opens up a range of applications for cell-based assays that cannot be performed on a standard plate reader. Information on cell morphology, localization of signal, cell count and more is obtained with Cytation 5’s imaging mode.
Plate reading: absorbance, fluorescence; luminescence; advanced read modes
Cytation 5: Ready for any assay
With its combination of hybrid plate reader and advanced microscopy mode, Cytation 5 is truly ready for any assay. Contact us to learn how Cytation 5 can transform your lab and greatly increase your productivity.
Advanced microscopy: Unlimited possibilities
Hit-picking: Multi-mode detection + imaging saves time and data storage
Powerful image processing and analysis
No need to process and analyze images one by one on a dedicated computer. In Gen5, pre-program your analysis tasks and walk away.
Hybrid plate reader: Flexibility and performance
Variable bandwidth for sensitivity and specificity
Micro-volume analysis with Take3 plate
Turn your Cytation 5 into a micro-volume analysis system with Take3. You can run 16 or 48 samples in one run to save a lot of time compared to single-sample devices. Gen5 is pre-programmed for ssDNA, dsDNA, RNA and protein quantification in 2 μL.
Customer SpotlightNovel, Highly Sensitive, Non-Radioactive Cytotoxicity Assay with Cytation 5
At the Institut de Pharmacologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire (IPMC) in Nice/Sophia-Antipolis, France, Drs. Fabienne Anjuère and Véronique Braud are on the cutting edge of immunotherapy research with the goals of identifying therapeutic targets and developing innovative vaccines and immunotherapies to treat inflammatory disorders and cancers. Most recently, they are focused on the study of innate immune cells (natural killer cells, neutrophils, dendritic cells) in healthy and tumorigenic epithelial tissues, which requires use of flow cytometry, cellular and biochemical assays in both in vitro and in vivo studies.
