Azure Q-Module for total protein stain illumination

The Q-Module from Azure Biosystems is a visible light source upgrade (ex 524 nm / em 572 nm) that can be fitted to NIR or chemiluminescent Azure Biosystems imaging systems to enable illumination of the AzureRed total protein stain. Using this visible source to illuminate an appropriate total protein stain is preferable to using a NIR channel as it leaves the NIR channels free for multiplex or single target protein illumination.

For researchers working with HRP based chemiluminescence substrates such as Radiance, the addition of a Q-Module to an Azure Biosystems imaging system enables Western blot quantification. In this scenario, AzureRed total protein stain is illuminated using the Q-module and the image saved then overlaid with a visible light, chemiluminescent image of the blot.
