what’s new

Cell imaging multimode reader BioTek introduces the Cytation 5 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader. The second-generation imaging reader includes added functionality to both the automated digital microscopy and conventional multimode microplate detection modes, enhancing phenotypic cellular information and well-based quantitative data.

measurements. The product now has two accompanying accessories: the Hydro Sight, an

field, H&E and phase contrast modes. The device also includes temperature

imaging accessory; and the Hydro SV, a small-volume wet dispersion unit. Hydro Sight provides real-time imaging of the liquid dispersion process in line with the

control to 65°C, CO2/O2 control, shaking and Gen5 software, designed to make

user’s laser diffraction particle size measurement. Hydro SV is a wet dispersion unit requiring just 5.6-7 mL of sample. It is provided with a
