Our priority: Robust
quantitative analysis  

Fluorescence microscopy coupled with myriad fluorescent probes provides cell biologists with a comprehensive toolbox to help visualize cellular dynamics in either fixed or live cell experiments. Yet the real power of the toolbox is only enabled when robust quantitative analysis is applied to the images acquired.  BioTek understands this and has developed a suite of quantitative image analysis protocols for use with its Cytation platform. An example of this quantitative microscopy capability is a spot counting feature that allows the determination of number and size of autophagosomes in each of the cells in the field of view.


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

Amazing Imaging
