Azure Biosystems Inc is an innovative life science platform company that designs, develops and markets state of the art imaging platforms such as the cSeries. Azure Biosystems’ experienced team have developed 2nd and 3rd generation imaging systems for the life science market, thus applying their technical and market knowledge in creating innovative industry standard setting platforms.
Azure Biosystems’ Azure cSeries is the only CCD based imaging systems that offer a gel imaging system that is fully upgradable to a laser based IR Western imaging system. The cSeries flagship product, the c600, is the only Western system in the market that uses lasers diodes for IR imaging, and performs Chemiluminescent and Visible Fluorescent Western blot imaging, making this a unique solution for labs that require application flexibility.
Azure Biosystems designed the cSeries as a modular, upgradable, multi-modal platform. The compact system is built around a touch screen user interface on a tablet computer, offering superior performance and reliability compared to on-board computers. Dual focus technology ensures the lens is always in focus, and always set to the correct settings, providing a simplified imaging experience. The application-driven software controls the many options for integrated light sources including laser diodes for IR 700 and 800 dyes, LEDs for CY5/CY3/CY2 applications, and UV for gel documentation. Chemiluminescent Western performance is achieved with a low noise 8.3 Mega Pixel camera with a 0.95 lens.
All cSeries platforms, from the c200 gel documentation system to the c300, c400, and c500 Western imaging systems, can be upgraded in the field to the c600. Thus, customers will not require separate systems for gel documentation, chemiluminescent Western imaging, visible fluorescent Western imaging and IR Western imaging.
With most imaging systems a decision between application flexibility and image quality has to be made. However, the Sapphire Biomolecular Imager is a next generation laser scanning system which offers the best of both worlds; unparalleled flexibility with excellent sensitivity and image quality. Whatever your imaging application the Sapphire Biomolecular Imager and the powerful Sapphire Capture software will deliver high quality quantifiable data. Up to four solid state lasers (488, 520, 658 and 784 nm) offering ultimate excitation sensitivity；Photon multiplier tube (PMT) for fluorescence and phosphor imaging, avalanche photodiodies (APD) for near-infrared imaging and a CCD sensor for chemiluminescent and visible imaging；Ultra-wide dynamic range for imaging and quantifying low and high abundance samples simultaneously；Image resolution down to 10 microns for high-quality image analysis；Full integration with Sapphire Capture and AzureSpot software programs for perfect imaging and accurate analysis every time.
