Above all: Rock solid data

The need for rigor and reproducibility is paramount in scientific research to ensure experimental outcomes are meaningful. Only with strong foundations in our science can incremental breakthroughs be accomplished.  BioTek understands this and builds instruments that are robust and precise. Cytation is a leading example of this philosophy, where automated image capture, processing and analysis of cellular dynamics provides solid, publishable data that cell biologists demand.  


Think Possible with Cytation™ 

Cytation™ Cell Imaging Readers provide your research lab with affordable quantitative microscopy – automated imaging for fluorescence, brightfield, color brightfield and phase contrast along with sophisticated cell analysis in one small, powerful platform.

We Make Quantitative Microscopy Affordable
