Azure Biosystems Azure 280

Azure Biosystems - Azure 280

Workhorse imaging system at an affordable price

Easily image DNA and protein gels images without a darkroom.

  • Use your choice of dyes or stains and the system automatically selects the light source and filters for you

  • “Safe” dye detection: Blue Light Imaging as an alternative to ethidium bromide, less-harmful "Safe" dyes can be imaged

  • DNA detection: UV Imaging for Ethidium bromide-stained DNA gels

  • Protein analysis: White Light Imaging for protein gels stained with Coomassie blue or silver stain

  • Western Blot: 6 MPx cooled CCD camera for chemiluminescence detection

  • Azure 280 is not upgradeable to other Azure models
