Azure Biosystems ChemiSOLO



Compact chemiluminescent imager for quantitative chemiluminescent and visible protein gels

Experts using chemiSOLO

Why Do Scientists Choose chemiSOLO?

Space-efficient design

Smaller than a microwave, with the footprint of a laptop, chemiSOLO replaces darkrooms and bulky imagers

Azure Biosystems highly sensitive chemi Western blots

Highly Sensitive Imaging

Rapidly images chemiluminescent Western blots with femtogram sensitivity


Unique Web-based Connection

Control the chemiSOLO using your phone, tablet, Mac or PC

No downloads required

quantity accuracy

Quantitative Data Acquisition

Linear detection from the chemiSOLO allows for Western blot quantitation over a wide dynamic range without saturation

Key Features

Chemi Made Convenient

chemiSOLO detects low-expressing proteins with femtogram sensitivity and captures marker images at the push of a button.

Designed to provide sensitive detection of chemiluminescent signals via a six megapixel, backilluminated, Peltier-cooled CMOS camera.

Able to overlay visible images of multicolor protein markers with chemiluminescent images of blots to facilitate gel annotation and band identification.

Azure chemiOLO EDR capabillity
Using the extended dynamic range (EDR) function, chemiSOLO takes images with >16-bit depth, allowing for a wider linear dynamic range without saturation for a wider range of quantitation.

Quantitative Image Acquisition

Captures images at a higher bit depth, while avoiding pixel saturation and maximizing the linear dynamic range.

chemiSOLO’s wide dynamic range can be further enhanced by using EDR, the Extended Dynamic Range function. The EDR feature allows for linear, quantitative data.

Flexible Imaging

In addition to Western blots, chemiSOLO beautifully captures clear pictures of colorimetric blots and visible-stained protein gels, like Coomassie blue or silver stain.

Size of Azure chemiSOLO
chemiSOLO has dimensions of 11.5” x 8.75” x 17.0”

Space-efficient Design

chemiSOLO weighs in at only 9.1kg / 20lbs!

The compact and easily portable design fits neatly into any busy lab space.

Broad Accessibility

There’s nothing to install: a unique browse-based software allows chemiSOLO to be controlled by phone, tablet, or PC.

Connect to chemiSOLO’s unique Wifi signal through a suitable device. Using a smart phone or tablet, scan a unique QR code to sync. Alternatively, on a laptop, enter chemiSOLO’s IP address into a web browser to access software.
