The Azure 200 is a simple, touch screen based gel documentation imaging system. It is designed for UV, color imaging, blue-excited DNA dyes, and Coomassie gel imaging. No focusing, regardless of the size of your gel, all images are in focus without needing to adjust the focus. No positioning, no matter where you place the sample in the imager, the Azure 200 will capture it.

Automatic Imaging

Select the application and it will choose the light sources and filters for you. The Azure 200 can be easily upgraded at a later time to accommodate additional applications.

High-resolution Imaging

A 5.4MP camera provides high resolution imaging perfect for publications.

"Safe" Dye Detection

A less toxic alternative to ethidium bromide, less-harmful “Safe” dyes can be imaged with the EPI Blue LEDs standard in all the systems.

Dynamic Range of 4.82 orders of magnitude

4.8 OD Dynamic Range

Intuitive capture software controlled by a wide touchscreen

The Azure 200 provides high-resolution imaging that is ideal for publication purposes, as well as higher pixel well cap for higher dynamic range.

Field Upgradable for More Light Sources

The flexibility of Azure Imaging Systems comes from the wide variety of light sources and filters to detect fluorescent dyes up to 832nm. The Azure 200 is upgradeable, for when your research needs evolve.

Compact Design

At 42 x 56 x 33 cm, the small size translates into saving more room on your bench.

UV Imaging using Ethidium Bromide
With a dual-wavelength 302 nm and 365 nm UV transilluminator, images of ethidium bromide-stained DNA gels can be captured in a fraction of a second.
