Easy to Use, Low Cost and High Performing Imaging System
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Western Blot

"One year ago (August 2021), we purchased an Azure 280 imaging system (AZI280) from Azure biosystems. We wanted a low-cost yet high-performance and quantitative Western Blot imaging system, and Azure 280 was exactly what we needed. The Azure 280 is easy to use and has identical capabilities to the Azure 300, but it is just not upgradeable. However, we were offered the option to upgrade in the future (if we wanted to) by trade-in. Nathan Hemendinger, the director of Eastern North America at Azure Biosystems was courteous and very accommodating. He even offered us a free one-year extended warranty."

  • Application Area:DNA gels

"I am used to working on BioRad systems. Azure 280 is easier to use and, for DNA gels, gives much clearer pictures. When we had technical difficulties, the manual clearly spelled out how to address them. The system is very compact. It takes up a tiny amount of bench space compared to any other imager I have used. If you can come up with 40cm x 40cm, you can fit this machine. The only problem I have had so far is it only has 2 USB ports, meaning I can only connect two of three of a mouse, keyboard and flash drive. However, this is not a large issue for me."

Excellent piece of kit
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Gel imaging/documentation

"The Azure c280 really is an excellent system, and the service from Cambridge Bioscience (the UK distributor) has been exceptional. Okay, this is the 'budget' model which lacks the fluorescence and near IR capability of the more expensive systems, but what it does (colour imaging/chemiluminescence of proteins/DNA/RNA gel imaging, it does really very well. It is quick to start, easy to use and simple to transfer files from with a small footprint on the bench. What more could you ask for?"
