Modular and upgradable to meet current and future workflow requirements
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.
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.
100 mW laser for speed and performance-based excitation for Alpha assays
Laser-based excitation in Cytation 5 offers the power required to get great sensitivity and fast reading speeds, which are critical for Alpha assays.
