Imagers from Azure Biosystems cover the full spectrum of capabilities for documentation and quantitative analysis of gels, blots, slides, tissue samples, small animal models, plants, and more.
Choose one of our imaging systems for general lab imaging needs, or the Sapphire Biomolecular Imager for maximum flexibility and performance. Regardless of which model you choose, your lab will benefit from the same commitment to excellence Azure Biosystems brings to instrument design, manufacturing, service, and support.
Our family of Imagers offers fast, sensitive, high-resolution 9MP CCD-based detection in a small, benchtop-friendly footprint.
Choose the basic 200 for streamlined gel documentation and densitometry (white light, blue light, and UV) and then upgrade later as your studies change.
Upgrade to the 300 to add the ability to detect chemiluminescence at the same sensitivity as film.
The 300 is also upgradable to the 400, which adds visible (RGB) fluorescence detection, or the 500 for near infrared (NIR) fluorescence detection.
All of these models can be upgraded to the 600 which combines all of these detection modes—white light, blue light, UV, chemiluminescence, visible fluorescence, and NIR fluorescence—in a single powerful instrument.
For labs that need the highest levels of imaging performance—sensitivity (PG to FG), resolution (down to 10 μm), dynamic range (over 6-log), field-of-view (25 cm x 25 cm scannable area)—or want an imager that can keep up with their diverse and dynamic research needs, Azure offers the Sapphire Biomolecular Imager.
This instrument combines a unique three-detector design with the background-minimizing, focused excitation of a laser scanner. The result is a hybrid laser scanner-CCD imager that delivers best-in-class chemiluminescent detection, visible and NIR fluorescence detection, and phosphor imaging
The Cielo’s efficient well-based scanning technology scans multiple data points within each well, eliminating the need for normalization dyes, such as ROX.
Engineered for a wide variety of qPCR applications with high sensitivity and wide dynamic range.
NIR lasers keep signal high and background low. Our high-performance multiplex NIR lasers and filters deliver robust excitation energy which maximizes emission strength for maximum sensitivity.
With a focus on applications and a deep understanding of how scientists work, AzureSpot Pro Software delivers powerful image analysis that’s quick and easy to implement.
From simple image capture to sophisticated quantitative analysis, AzureSpot Software supports the full capabilities of all our imagers and Sapphire Imagers.
