Azure Sapphire Biomolecular Imager


Azure Sapphire™ Biomolecular Imager

Next generation laser-scanning system with unmatched flexibility and performance

Azure Sapphire Benefits

Multiplexing Capabilities

Best-in-class multiplex fluorescent detection for near infrared (NIR) and visible research

Laser-based Technology

Clear images every time. Four solid state lasers act as excitation sources to help detect subtle changes and increase image quality.

Higher Sensitivity

Higher sensitivity for lower limits of detection, including down to femtograms of the protein of interest

Wide Detection Range

Broad linear dynamic range to image and quantify low and high abundance samples simultaneously

Compare Models

Available in numerous configurations to help you elevate your genomics, cancer, or microbiome studies

** optional

Key Features

Ultimate Application Flexibility 

The Sapphire removes the need for numerous, single-application imagers. Access ultimate application flexibility with three different detection modes. It is a highly versatile imager for a wide range of applications and research focuses.

Enhanced Quantitative Fluorescence Imaging

Enhance your fluorescence imaging with stable fluorescent signals, which help achieve reliable quantitation for very weak to very strong bands.

The Sapphire allows you to probe for multiple proteins on a single blot, providing more results from every sample.

Higher Sensitivity with Chemiluminescence Imaging

Get more research done in less time with higher sensitivity than film-based imaging techniques. The Sapphire’s chemiluminescence imaging is four times faster and more sensitive. It can detect down to femtogram amounts of your protein of interest.

Improved Flexibility with Phosphor Imaging

Rely on a wide dynamic range for sensitive detection and higher sensitivity—both of which are necessities when conducting phosphor imaging.

The Sapphire can scan storage phosphor screens, allowing you to also move away from film-based autoradiography.


The power of the Sapphire provides you with the versatility to do more applications with one system.

What Scientists are Saying

"Great value, powerful, flexible, reliable. Buy it!"


This is a high quality imager that has a strong value for the usability vs. price. The imager is highly programmable, supporting multiple applications, and returns sensitive and high quality data. The imager has also been reliable, with no errors… more

"My researchers have been happy with it."


My lab has a Sapphire Imager RGB-NIR with 4 lasers for over a year and a half now. This has been a workhorse for us as we use it for fluorescent gels and western blots regularly. My researchers have been happy with it… more
