Eliminating the need for numerous pieces of equipment, the Azure 200 from Azure Biosystems enables researchers to easily image DNA and protein gels stained with 'safe' dyes, Ethidium Bromide or Coomassie Blue or silver stains. Compact, user friendly and featuring a 5.4-megapixel camera, the Azure 200 utilises UV, blue-light and white-light imaging to produce high-quality images ideal for publication. Using the accompanying software, visualised bands can be analysed for molecular weight or concentration.
