• I asked the chairman of our department for buying a spectrophotometer like NanoPhotometer™ for a period of more than three months. Finally we got it from IMPLEN and it is in our lab right now. But this caused a small “capacity problem” as everybody started to come in our lab for using this device. Sometimes it is annoying that everybody wants to use the NanoPhotometer. – Anyway I had fed up with using cuvettes and wasting my time before we bought Nanophotometer. But now I am very happy for having it more than 1 year. Using very little amount of DNA/RNA samples and the high accuracy are major advantages of this device. So I strongly recommend IMPLEN’s NanoPhotometer® to researchers.

  • We now use the NanoPhotometer® Implen for more than two years and like the instrument very much. We use it several times a day, for the concentration measurement of RNA and DNA samples with the LabelGuard Microliter Cell. The NanoPhotometer® with its very short optical path has served us very well because many of our RNA samples are precious and need to have high concentrations. The LabelGuard Microliter Cell enables us to conserve samples because we don’t need to waste much sample volume for the measurements themselves. We also like that we can use 1 cm path length cuvettes with the photometer, for the OD measurement of cell cultures. I highly recommend the instrument.

  • Before we received a demonstration of the NanoPhotometer® from Implen in our lab, our decision to go with a system from another company had already been made. When we observed how easy and fast it was to use the NanoPhotometer® from Implen, our minds were changed. We loved the flexibility and accuracy, providing the options and precision needed for our applications. We ordered the NanoPhotometer® which we now use every day. We are very happy with the instrument and the support we have received from the Implen team. We highly recommend the NanoPhotometer® from Implen.

  • We bought our first NanoPhotometer® from Implen 18 months ago and have been very happy with it ever since. Based on the good experience we purchased an additional instrument for our teaching lab beginning of this year. The NanoPhotometer® has a built-in display screen and is fast and easy to use. We use it extensively for RNA and DNA quantitation. The system provides accurate and reproducible results. I highly recommend the instrument.

  • We recently bought our first NanoPhotometer® from Implen and already love it. It is so easy to use, it is fast and reliable. The flexibility is great, we use the NanoPhotometer® for Proteins and Nucleic Acids. The local support is excellent, we can highly recommend the NanoPhotometer® and the company Implen.

  • The NanoPhotometer® from Implen is a real workhorse in our lab. The small bench space requirement, the flexibility to also use all kinds of standard cuvettes and the mobility are real advantages that we need in our day to day work. The Implen support team is very responsive and of great help.

  • In Molecular Genetics we are faced with tight turnaround times and need to get our patient specimens from receipt, through nucleic acid extraction, to diagnostic testing within one working day. The IMPLEN NanoPhotometer® has removed the need for us to make dilutions and has reduced the time spent on each measurement. We have found it to measure reliably and easy to use.

  • The Implen NanoPhotometer® is simply an invaluable addition to our lab. Not only is it quick and convenient to use, the repeatability we get from it is second to none. Even when we re-spec our RNA samples after freezing and re-thawing, our spectral values are identical. We have found this not to be the case with similar competing spectrometers. As even at low volume we do not see differences in terms of sample readings over repeat testing and verification. The printer function makes data logging for laboratory books ideal. Hard copy data can be attached to log books to ensure that a catalogue of samples can be created with practical ease.

  • I would sincerely recommend the Implen NanoPhotometer®. It’s a very good machine for everyday laboratory use, requires minimal volumes of a sample for reading (1-5 ul), is easy to use and maintain and has a small footprint suitable for limited laboratory space.

    Sonja Nitecki, Letterkenny Institute of Technology, Ireland

  • The NanoPhotometer® from Implen is easy to use and flexible! Beside an easy handling and comfortable print-out options we like the compactness of the “stand-alone” technology approach. All these features allow the operation by many different users (e.g. trainees, students or PhD students). In addition, the NanoPhotometer® can easily be integrated in teaching labs – minimal space requirement and independence from a computer eases the transport between different classes. For our routine applications the NanoPhotometer® is considerably time saving, as sample dilution and recording of the dilution history is no longer necessary. Regular performance tests of our NanoPhotometer® have demonstrated that the instrument is fully meeting our expectations towards a reliable measurement device.

  • The NanoPhotometer® from Implen is not only used by our scientists, but also in our teaching labs. The outstanding features of the NanoPhotometer® are the clearly arranged software and the easy handling. We love the quantification of our nucleic acid samples in a very small volume in particular.

    Technische Universität Carolo-Wilhelmina, Institute for Genetic, Baunschweig, Germany

  • Routinely we are quantifying our RNA and DNA samples with the NanoPhotometer® from Implen. Our laboratory is accredited according to DIN EN ISO /IEC 17020. One of the many advantages of the NanoPhotometer® is the maintenance free technology, which does not require any recalibration or adjustment. In addition we can check the accuracy of the instrument with a special secondary standard from Implen without any great effort. In addition we very much like to use the NanoPhotometer® to quantify our samples because of the small volume requirement, the speed and in particular the accuracy.

    Horst-Schmidt-Klinikum Institute of Pathology and Zytology, Wiesbaden, Germany

  • We love to use the NanoPhotometer Spectrophotometer® from Implen for the analysis of our variety of assays. We are thrilled by the minimal sample volume required for our nucleic acid and protein samples. Measurements with the NanoPhotometer® are very accurate and reliable.

    Affectis Pharmaceuticals AG MPI für Psychiatrie, Munich, Germany

  • We are very happy with our NanoPhotometer® because of the quick and easy operation, the high reproducibility and reliability for our protein measurements with small volume samples. We are also convinced by the easy handling and in particular the integrated automatic sample dilution.

    Dr. Otmar Hainzl, Sandoz Biopharmaceutical Development, Biophysical Characterization Lab, Oberhaching, Germany

  • Finally we have an instrument that can provide accurate, consistent readings of protein concentration. In a lab that focuses on protein purification and expression for crystallography, it is imperative to use a reliable instrument. We could not be happier with our new NanoPhotometer!
