Wide Field of View Camera now available for Cytation 5

A new wide field of view (wide FOV) camera available for Cytation 5™ Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader expands the imaging functionality of this versatile system.

The new wide FOV camera enables single image capture of a whole well, as shown in the 4x image below of a 384-well microplate.

Picture1 Other benefits of the wide FOV for fluorescence and brightfield imaging include:


  • Increased speed for slide scanning (larger montages)
  • Enables capture of rare event biology
  • Statistically significant sampling at 20x

The Cytation™ 5 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader combines automated digital widefield microscopy with conventional multi-mode microplate reading in a unique, patented design. With Cytation 5, you can capture rich phenotypic cellular information and well-based quantitative data in a single experiment.
