BioTek Cytation C10 with LDi-7 Pump Confocal Imaging Reader

Cambridge Scientific ID: 28512 Category: Tag:


The Cytation C10 confocal imaging reader combines automated confocal and widefield microscopy with conventional multimode microplate reading in a unique, proprietary design. The automated water-immersion objectives capture more light, driving lower exposure times and reducing phototoxic impacts on live cells. The spinning-disk confocal module and accompanying disk pinhole options allow a researcher to look deeper into thick sample biology with improved clarity and detail. High-quality components used in the system, including a Hamamatsu scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera, Olympus objectives and laser-based illumination enable excellent image quality, at a significantly lower price than others. Cytation C10 also includes widefield fluorescence, brightfield, and phase contrast optics. Onboard environmental controls enable live cell assays. Multiplate live cell assays are accomplished with Cytation C10 integrated with the Agilent BioTek BioSpa 8 automated incubator. Cytation C10 brings high-performance, affordable confocal to every laboratory.
