NanoPhotometer® NP80

Best in microvolume and cuvette


  • All-In-One

    The power and precision of standard spectroscopy and microvolume combined with the convenience of a lightweight portable instrument with a built-in 7 inch LCD glove compatible touchscreen and flexible unit control options. Built-in vortex provides sample uniformity for the highest degree of accuracy with the smallest sample volume with as little as 0.3 µl. Illuminated quartz sample surface allows for easy sample application.

  • Stand-Alone Operation

    No computer required. Built-in Computer with high performance Intel Celeron dual core 2.4 GHz processor and 32 GB of onboard memory provide powerful and easy storage of methods and data. Preprogrammed applications are available for nucleic acid quantitation and purity check (dsDNA, ssDNA, RNA, mRNA, miRNA, Oligos including dye-labeled samples)) as well as for protein quantitation and purity check (BSA, Antibodies, IgG, IgE, Serum Albumin, etc., including dye-labeled samples), small molecules in organic solvents, kinetics in a drop, and more.

  • Mobile Design

    Spectroscopy can now be taken anywhere with the small size of 20x20x12 cm and from 3.8 – 5.2 kg depending on configuration. Mobility is redefined with an optional built-in battery pack for up to 8 hours of stand-alone operation.


  • Accurate

    The patented Sample Compression TechnologyTM keeps the liquid samples shaped into a precisely defined flat layer of even thickness. Microvolume spectrophotometers, similar to microscope instrumentation, have a very narrow region within which they focus. Exact geometry with a precise path length, therefore, is of utmost importance. Sample Compression TechnologyTM has the added benefit of holding the sample in place and free from evaporation in a sealed and protected micro-environment allowing for reliable protein measurements and for the analysis of samples in volatile solvents.

  • Certainty in Real Time

    Sample Control™ - the leading edge quality control technology to identify air bubbles, sample impurities, turbidity, lint residue and potential contaminations. Sample Control™ monitors handling characteristics and sample quality in real time to ensure that the measured concentrations are reproducible and most precise.

  • CFR21 Software

    The CFR21 software complies with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 requirements and is an optional software tool ideal for GxP laboratories, which require proper electronic record keeping. It includes user management, access control, electronic signatures, data integrity, security, and audit trail functionality.

  • Universal Linguist

    NPOS now offers the user interface in a selection of languages. The advanced language functionality allows the operator to effectively understand and interact with the unit, boosting productivity in the lab. In addition to a new multilingual user interface, the NanoPhotometer® provides the flexibility to print results in multiple languages, which prevents misinterpretation of data and time consuming translations. The selection covers most widely spoken languages including English, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish and will be continuously extended.

  • Confidence with Blank Control™

    Be sure that your data are precise with Implen’s unique Blank Control™ feature. Blanks with high background or residues from previous users are the main cause for inaccurate readings. Blank Control™ will protect you from wasting time and precious sample on inaccurate readings caused by high background blanks or inappropriate cleaning.
