SEA Co-op: BioTek Cytation 5

George R Brown West 226/227

This instrument is part of the BRC Instrument Cooperative, and does not follow usual SEA rules. It does not use the calendar on this page, nor follow the listed limits on time used. Please contact the Faculty in Charge or the Trainer if you are part of the Cooperative and wish to be trained. For general details on the BRC Instrument Cooperative, please see here.


The BioTek Cytation5 is a combination multimode plate reader/fluorimeter/luminometer that also has the capacity for imaging, albeit at less resolution and magnification than a typical confocal microscope. More specifications can be found at http://www.biotek.com/products/imaging/cytation5_cell_imaging_multi_mode_reader.html?tab=overview

New users should contact Dr. Kirienko at kirienko@rice.edu to discuss their intended use and confirm that it is consistent with instrument capabilities.  Once this has been confirmed, training can be arranged.
