Sensitivity of Film at an Economical Price

Azure 280 offers sensitive digital chemiluminescent detection at a low cost

Performance and Affordability Go Hand-in-hand

Figure 1.4. Chemiluminescent Western blotting-  one signal, one protein. In chemiluminescent detection, the antigen-primary antibody complex is bound by a secondary antibody conjugated to an enzyme, such as horseradish peroxidase (HRP). The enzyme catalyzes a reaction that generates light in the presence of a luminescent substrate, and the light can be detected either by exposure to x-ray film or by a CCD-based imaging system.

Get the same sensitivity as chemiluminescent detection on film, but without the hassles of a darkroom and the expense of a bulky film developer. Image acquisition is 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.


Quantitative Chemiluminescent Imaging

Just as sensitive as film, but easier and quantitative, our Azure Imaging Systems will revolutionize your chemiluminescent workflows and eliminate your darkroom.

With Azure Imaging systems, the software notifies you when bands aresaturated and are not suitable for quantitaition. 

Figure 1. Saturation detection prevents errors in quantitation. The same Western Blot was imaged on both x-ray film and the Azure Imaging System. The Azure system detects when CCD saturation occurs and calculates an auto-exposure time to avoid saturated bands.
High Resolution Imaging

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.

UV Imaging using Ethidium Bromide
"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.
