Designed for cell biology researchers, the new Cytation 3 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader combines microplate reading and imaging in one. Suitable for microplates with six to 384 wells and microscope slides, the automated digital fluorescence microscope features brightfield imaging and colour switching through onboard filter cubes. It offers increased throughput of tasks like CCD-based image capture and cell counting. The microplate reader measures absorbance, fluorescence and luminescence. The system includes easy-to-use data analysis software and offers uniform temperature control to 45°C, variable shaking modes, and CO2 and O2 regulation for live-cell assays. Biotek Instruments Inc.
