I love it and have been incredibly happy with the machine and Azure as a company.
Application Area: Western imaging and nucleotide gels
"The c600 has been an essential workhorse in the lab since the day we bought it. With countless westerns and more than a fair share of nucleotide gels being imaged and analyzed using it. I greatly appreciate being able to switch quickly between applications and methods, as well as not needing proprietary software to view my data. It's been given 4/5 stars for ease of use only because you need to know how to ask the software what you want it to show you, which can be a bit of a learning curve. Once you understand the software though you can dial in your settings much more easily than with other machines I've used. It also offers a more push and capture option when you're expecting a strong response and just want to capture an image. I've been very happy with how their program balances weak signals and stronger signals since I'm often using the same blot for 7-10 proteins. With aftercare, Azure has been fantastic! They check in to make sure everything is going well, and to see if they can help with anything more just enough that it's not intrusive but often enough that you don't worry that they forgot about you."
The Azure 600 is the only system that offers two channel laser based IR detection, chemiluminescent detection with the speed and sensitivity of film, the ability to image visible fluorescent dyes, and the ability to image standard EtBr and protein gels. Infrared Laser Excitation for Quantitative Western Blot Imaging in the NIR Improve Your Data Quality Imaging with infrared dyes offers signal stability and low background fluorescence Imaging with NIR dyes allows you to study multiple proteins in a blot, even if those proteins overlap in molecular weight.
The Azure 600 offers laser technology with two IR detection channels enabling a user to image more than one protein in an assay. Sensitive Detection of Proteins with Chemiluminescent Westerns Get Out of the Dark The Azure 600 provides accurate and fast chemiluminescent detection, as well as the sensitivity, dynamic range, and linearity needed for quantitative blot analysis.
Get the best picture every time, and stop wasting money on film. Use Cy®5/Cy®3/Cy®2 Dyes, Blue-Excited DNA Dyes, and more. A Total Solution for Western Blot Imaging and Gel Documentation The Azure 600 is a multichannel, multimodal imager, with IR, visible light, and UV excitation channels. Detect Cy dyes, Alexa® dyes, Safe dyes, and more Also included is AzureSpot, an easy-to-use imaging software package for imaging single or multicolor blots and DNA and protein gels. The software comes with a software tutorial for easy training of new users.
