The Azure 280 gives you the same sensitivity as chemiluminescent detection on film, but without the hassles of a darkroom and the expense of a bulky film developer. It makes image acquisition as easy as placing your blot into the instrument and pressing a button—no more wasting time testing multiple film exposures to get the best image.
Just as sensitive as film, but easier and quantitative, the Azure 280 will revolutionize your chemiluminescent workflows and eliminate the need for a darkroom.
With the Azure 280, the software notifies you when bands are saturated and not suitable for quantitation.
A 6.1MP camera provides high resolution imaging perfect for publications. Change the sample to optics distance using adjustable height shelf for enhanced detection. Zoom into the area of interest with ROI imaging to reduce background.
A less toxic alternative to ethidium bromide, less-harmful “Safe” dyes can be imaged with the EPI Blue LEDs standard in the Azure 280 and all other Azure Imaging Systems.
The Azure 280 provides high-resolution imaging ideal for publication purposes, as well as higher pixel well cap for higher dynamic range.
4.8 OD Dynamic Range. Field of view: 20.4 x 16.6 cm
-50°C regulated cooling
At 42 x 56 x 33 cm, its small size translates into more room on your bench
One year ago (August 2021), we purchased an Azure 280 imaging system from Azure Biosystems. We wanted a low-cost yet high-performance and quantitative Western blot imaging system, and Azure 280 was exactly what we needed. The Azure 280 is easy to use and has identical capabilities as the Azure 300, but it is just not upgradeable. However, we were offered the option to upgrade in the future (if we wanted to) by trade-in. Nathan Hemendinger, the director of Eastern North America at Azure Biosystems was courteous and very accommodating.
• Flexibility—High sensitivity and performance for chemiluminescent imaging
• Quantitative accuracy—Designed for quantitation, our reagents, imaging system, and software work seamlessly together to help you follow best practices for Western blot publication
• Intelligent workflow—Our user interface allows total customization over imaging protocols, while ensuring repeatability from sample to sample. Our systems feature Auto-Focus, Auto-Illumination and Filter Control, and Auto-Image Capture. An integrated touchscreen allows ease of use and it can easily be controlled by an external PC, if required.
• Data integrity—Azure Biosystems meets the standards for publication in all major journals, and additionally offers software to enable 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance.
