"One year ago (August 2021), we purchased an Azure 280 imaging system (AZ1280) 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. He even offered us a free one-year extended warranty."
