From high magnification, intracellular image analysis to basic ELISA, Gen5 software helps transform raw data and images into meaningful results. Gen5 3.0 Software offers a unique combination of power and ease of use that drives productivity and saves time across all imaging and detection workflows.
Gen5 Microplate Reader and Imaging Software is an integrated tool for data and image collection and analysis, compatible with all of BioTek’s imaging, multi-mode and absorbance readers. It’s easy to get started with more than 150 prepared protocols within Gen5 and online. Gen5 supports endpoint, kinetic, well area scanning, spectral scanning read modes. One-button export sends your data right to Excel®, without requiring additional steps.
With Lionheart FX and Cytation imaging systems, Gen5 supports Augmented Microscopy™, the automated workflow incorporating image capture, processing, analysis and preparation of publication-ready images and data. Gen5 Image Prime takes image analysis to advance levels including powerful analysis tools like with nuclear mask expansion and reduction, secondary mask for cytoplasm or whole cell identification, custom object-level measurements for translocation and subpopulation analysis.
To meet GxP laboratory requirements Gen5 Secure offers features designed to meet 21 CFR Part 11 rules. Gen5 Secure is available for multi-mode and imaging application – all include: Built-in administration with no additional software required, multi-level user permissions, electronic signature and protocol and data audit trails with configurable alerts.
Gen5 offers extensive data analysis tools for quantitative and qualitative analysis, including 4- and 5-parameter curve fits, EC/IC50 and Z’ calculations Data reduction transformations and customizable validation and cutoff calculations, are all easily defined within the protocol. Gen5 provides quick low volume results with the Take3 plates, and data from any screen is exportable to Excel® at the touch of a single button.
Gen5 is fully validation at BioTek, click here to see the certificate. A Validation Package is available, providing an efficient, step-by-step approach to facilitate your internal validation. The Gen5 Validation Package is compatible with BioTek’s microplate reader Product Qualification Packages (IQ/OQ/PQ). Gen5 IVD and Gen5 IVD Image+ have QC trending capability, security features and validation protocols for convenience and efficiency.
Gen5 offers powerful imaging methods and processing, including high speed imaging and image binning for fast kinetics, z-stacking and z-projections, montage capture and stitching, time-lapse movie making with automated image adjustment and much more. Several editions are available to meet your laboratory’s imaging requirements.
Captures high quality images from 1.25x to 100x with Lionheart FX, up to 60x with Cytation and Gen5. Combine multiple image acquisition steps and multi-mode detection steps to obtain and analyze both phenotypic and quantitative data. Image file from other programs can be imported and analyzed in Gen5.
Gen5 is available in a several editions to meet the requirements of most laboratories. See a detailed feature comparison here.

*Gen5 Image Prime and Gen5 Secure Image Prime are for Research Use Only. Not for Diagnostic Use.
|Recommended Computer System Requirements||
For Imaging Applications (Lionheart FX, Cytation 5 and Cytation 3)
*Each image is approximately 2MB in size. Image file management is the responsibility of the user. For best performance, use an RJ-45 Lan connector for network use. Do not connect to a network using WiFi.
For General Multi-Mode Detection Applications.
*For Cytation customers who may plan to upgrade to imaging, a 64-bit OS is required for the USB 3.0 camera.
