BioTek to Exhibit at Neuroscience 2015
News Sep 29, 2015
Featured will be BioTek’s award-winning, second generation Cytation™ 5 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Microplate Reader. Cytation 5 combines automated digital widefield microscopy with conventional multi-mode microplate reading to provide phenotypic cellular information and well-based quantitative data. This modular platform can process workflows that would traditionally require multiple instruments and software interfaces, and is simple to setup and operate. With 1.25x to 60x magnification, the microscopy module provides high-quality cellular and sub-cellular imaging in fluorescence, brightfield, color brightfield and phase contrast. The multi-mode microplate reader features BioTek’s patented Hybrid Technology™, which incorporates variable bandwidth monochromator optics and high sensitivity filter-based detection optics for unmatched versatility and performance.
The spatial and temporal dynamics of proteins or organelles plays a crucial role in controlling various cellular processes and in development of diseases. However, acute control of activity at distinct locations within a cell cannot be achieved. A new chemo-optogenetic method enables tunable, reversible, and rapid control of activity at multiple subcellular compartments within a living cell.
