Description: Gen5 is analysis software used in conjunction with microplate instrument technology. This software allows users to analyze collected data and create reports. Gen5`s capabilities extend from high magnification intracellular image analysis to basic enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).

There are several configurations available for Gen5, including Gen5, which features complete reader control and data analysis for all BioTek microplate readers and basic image analysis with Lionheart FX and Cytation; Gen5RC, which features reader Control only for all BioTek microplate readers; Gen5 Image+, which features complete imaging control for Lionheart FX Automated Live Cell Imager and Cytation Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Readers; Gen5 Secure, which features complete reader control and data analysis for all BioTek microplate readers; Gen5 Secure Image+, which includes features and functionality found in both Gen5 Image+ and Gen5 Secure; Gen5 In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD), which features complete reader control and data analysis for all BioTek microplate readers, with convenient quality control (QC) Trending module and Validation Package included; Gen5 IVD Image+, which includes features found in both Gen5 IVD and Gen5 Image+; Gen5 Image Prime, which features imaging control for Lionheart FX Automated Live Cell Imager and Cytation Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Readers; and Gen5 Secure Image Prime, which includes features and functionality found in both Gen5 Image Prime and Gen5 Secure. The scope of this entry is the basic Gen5 configuration.

Gen5 utilizes the Microsoft Access Database for data storage. This database is required in order to run the software; however, users can utilize their computer`s local drive for data storage.
