Laser autofocus option added to BioTek’s Cytation Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Readers

BioTek’s award-winning Cytation Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Readers now have an option for laser autofocus, along with the current image-based autofocus method.

The patent pending laser autofocus design puts all the required components into a single, user-installable cube that can be added at any time to a new or existing system.  Laser autofocus offers speed, reproducibility and lowered risk of phototoxicity and photobleaching.  With both laser autofocus and image-based autofocus available in Cytation, the system offers an important advantage in imaging – the ability to use the most appropriate autofocus method for the biology being studied. 

Cytation Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Readers are the only instruments that combine multi-mode detection and microscopy with both image-based autofocus and laser autofocus option, to suit a broad range of applications.

BioTek Instruments, Inc., headquartered in Winooski, VT, USA, is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture, and sale of microplate instrumentation and software.
