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. This upgrade enables illumination of the AzureRed total protein stain. This visible source illuminates an appropriate total protein stain, making it more preferable to using an NIR channel, because it leaves the NIR channel free for more multiplex options, and more single target protein illumination.

For researchers working with HRP based chemiluminescence substrates such as Radiance, the addition of the Q-module to an Azure Biosystems imaging system enables Western blot quantification. The Q-module AzureRed total protein stain illuminates the image saved and overlays it with a visible light, creating a chemiluminescent image of your blot.
