Azure Biosystems imagers cover the full spectrum of capabilities for documentation and quantitative analysis of gels, Western blots, slides, tissue samples, small animal models, plants and more. Users can choose from one of the Azure imagers for general lab imaging needs or the Sapphire Biomolecular Imager for high flexibility and performance on blots, gels, plates, microarrays, phosphor imaging, tissue and small animal models.

Azure imagers offer fast, sensitive, high-resolution, 9 MP, CCD-based detection in a small, benchtop-friendly footprint. They are multichannel, multimodal imagers, with near-infrared, visible light and UV excitation channels. They can be used to detect Cy dyes, Alexa dyes, Safe dyes, Trihalo compound based gels and more.

The basic 200 model is for streamlined gel documentation and densitometry (white light, blue light and UV). 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 Infrared laser excitation for quantitative Western lot imaging in the NIR. 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 high levels of imaging performance — including sensitivity (pg to fg), resolution (down to 10 μm), dynamic range (over 6-log) and field of view (25 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. The instrument combines three-detector design with the background-minimising, focused excitation of a laser scanner. The result is a hybrid laser scanner–CCD imager that delivers chemiluminescent detection, visible and NIR fluorescence detection, and phosphorimaging.
