Azure Sapphire Biomolecular Imager

In-Cell Westerns | Fluorescence | Chemiluminescence | Western Blotting | Near InfraRed

As the next generation of laser scanning systems, the Sapphire Biomolecular Imager delivers unmatched flexibility and performance for today’s demanding labs.

With more imaging modalities than any other instrument currently on the market, the Sapphire’s four solid state lasers and patent-pending three-detector system enables an incredibly wide range of applications. And the intuitive, easy-to-use software ensures a smooth acquisition and analysis experience for all users.

  • Improved multiplex fluorescent detection (near IR and visible)
  • Chemiluminescent imaging, surpassing film
  • Higher sensitivity for lower limits of detection (femtograms)
  • Broad linear dynamic range for accurate quantitation
  • Ease-of-use with intuitive control software
