Combo instrument, fast and accurate, user-friendly. Amazing capabilities!
Application Area: Scan mouse tissues, chemiluminescence, fluorescent slides
"The imager combines fluorescence, while using four solid state lasers as excitation sources (450, 520, 660, and 780 nm), chemiluminescence, and radioisotope imaging. It has so many amazing capabilities. I used it for whole tissue liver imaging and the layout was very simple, convenient and had user-friendly software that we were able to use right away. It is fast and accurate. The application of the four-channel fluorescence mode or white light beam at 10-μm resolution could detect gross anatomy and morphology of liver tissues, mainly based on tissue autofluorescence, I also use the imager for chemiluminescent western blots, immunostained slides, but mostly whole organ imaging. I also find the Azure Spot quantification software very useful."

Very good imaging system, it is so awesome.
Application Area:Analyze DNA, protein gel images
"It is so easy to use and provides high resolution images. Also easy to transfer the images and put in the notes. We can even image bacterial cells expressing fluorescent protein."

Packed full of functions and solid performance at a fine price.
Application Area:Western blot and DNA gel imaging
"The azure gel imager series replaces the need for dark room/film-based applications, which are usually laborious and costly to maintain. This series is comparable to film sensitivity, very user-friendly and low footprint, compared to its more costly competitors. More importantly, the post-sales service by Azure and its distributor has been excellent and never fails to deliver in terms of service speed and efficiency - something that the major brands are lacking in current times. In terms of cost, reliability and maintenance, it is definitely within a lab's budget, very reasonably priced and low cost to maintain. Though it is a fairly new introduction in the imager arena, it definitely punches above its weight. The only con to this machine is that it can accommodate 1 user per scanning unless multiple users are willing to scan at the same time."

Outstanding customer service and knowledgeable specialists.
Application Area:Analytical development
"This May, our Azure C400 imager had a focus problem. The images generated by the imager were blurry and the focus could not be adjusted appropriately. We called Azure for service. Emma is our local technical product specialist, she responded to our call immediately. She communicated with our analysts about the technical details and included her senior specialists. She then came onsite quickly and successfully solved the problem. We are confident in using the Azure imager now and we believe Azure has a strong technical team and excellent customer service."

We strongly recommend any series of the imaging system.
Application Area:Drug Discovery
"The Azure c400 has proven to be a wonderful purchase. When our older imager broke down, we were worried about finding a replacement as there were so many different companies and products to review. What first set this company apart was the customer service that Azure biosystems provides. Danny, our product specialist, was extremely easy to communicate with, engaging, and answered all of our questions -- we were confident in his expertise. He was diligent about finding the best imaging system that our department required. When looking at the imager, we were impressed. It is incredibly user friendly, which was a priority for us. Many different labs would be using this, and it doesn't require much training. Since our purchase several months ago, we have been very satisfied with the quality of images, the thorough analysis software, and the continued customer service. We strongly recommend any series of the imaging system, as well as the company."

Best purchase we've made in years
Application Area:Western blot analyses
"The c400 is incredibly user friendly. Using custom time intervals and sensitivities with this machine will save you tons of time in the dark room if you still develop film. The versatility makes this a product a simple purchase for those just starting to put a lab together and want to do two-channel IR direct detection, chemiluminescence, DNA/protein blot images, or even 3-channel visible fluorescent detection if you feel the need to upgrade in the future. The company has also been easy to contact with questions and demonstrations. We highly recommend this product and company."

Essential addition to our work-flow. State of the art instrument, great flexibility, and excellent customer support!
Application Area:Western blotting and Ab Arrays
"Our Azure c400 has proven to be extremely user friendly and an essential addition to our work-flow. Azure has developed an intuitive interface for the platform which is easy to navigate without limiting flexibility and features prior to image acquisition. And the auto exposure function provides good estimate of exposure time for the majority of our applications. The combination of a state of the art instrument, excellent post-sales support, and a responsive development team (integration of user recommended functions into the software) have made us loyal supporters of Azure."
The Azure c400 is offers 3 channel fluorescent detection for Westerns, chemiluminescent detection with the speed and sensitivity of film, and imaging for standard EtBr and protein gels.
