chemiluminescent western blot signal

Get the best picture every time, and stop wasting money on film! UV, color imaging, blue-excited DNA dyes, silver-stain, Coomassie gel imaging, and more. The Azure 300 is a multichannel, multimodal imager, with visible fluorescence, visible light, and UV excitation channels. The system is fully upgradeable to a fluorescent Western Blot Imaging System. 

The Azure 300 offers the simplicity, speed and sensitivity of film detection, with better resolution and more quantitative results. This upgradeable chemiluminescent imager replaces a darkroom with film, while providing accurate and fast chemiluminescent detection, as well as the sensitivity, dynamic range, and linearity needed for quantitative blot analysis.

Quantitative Chemiluminescent Imaging

The Azure 300 offers digital chemiluminescent detection at a sensitivity equal to film,  without all the hassles. Simply place your Western blot into the system and acquire the image with the click of a button.

Outperforms film performance while generates a quantitative, wide dynamic range image. Indicates eventual signal saturation for accurate quantitation.

The imaging chamber replaces the darkroom and film developers to generate a digital image including true color molecular weight marker. Obtain your images immediately and be ready to quantify bands in the analysis software.

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.
Compact Design

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

Intuitive capture software controlled by a wide touchscreen

The Azure 300 is a chemiluminescent imager that provides high-resolution imaging is ideal for publication purposes, as well as higher pixel well cap for higher dynamic range.

Use the preset protocols of the comprehensive list of typical detections, or generate your own custom protocols combining any excitation source, emission filter, image overlay, lens aperture, exposure time, focus, distance to the camera, and resolution.

The Azure 300 is a wonderful gel imager and fits our needs perfectly. It’s compact and sleek – looks great on the bench. We just received it and are getting ready to take the first images soon. With the camera upgrade from the Azure 200 the images should be crisp and publication worthy. A solid and well-built instrument.

Both the Azure 300 and Azure 300Q offer:

Flexibility—Sensitivity and performance for fluorescence, chemiluminescence, trans-UV & visible, and true-color imaging with 4.8 OD dynamic range. High resolution CCD cameras with fast lens options, adjustable lens and illumination settings, trays with adjustable distance to the camera, and auto-detection and pre-calibrated focus.

Quantitative accuracy—Designed for generating publication quality images and easy 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.
