IMPLEN NanoPhotometer N120 – UV Spectrophotometer


Established in 2003, Implen is a leading supplier for spectroscopy instruments and consumables for the non-destructive analysis of ultra low volume samples which has a headquarter in Munich, Germany. The company truly focuses on biological, chemical, and pharmaceutical laboratories in industry and research. Implen has been known since it launched the first generation  of NanoPhotometer®, which then followed by other spectrometry instruments that continue to evolve and grow, and support variety of modern research workflows. Now Implen is not only famous in its home country, but also has expanded around the world.

IMPLEN NanoPhotometer® instruments are generally equipped with a variety of advanced features that can ease researchers in doing spectrometry measurements. The Sample Compression Technology™ allows researchers to get high-precision analysis and protein concentration reading all thanks to the sample drop squeezer that is made of stainless quartz, which also allows researchers to do sample testing with organic solvents or detergent-based buffer. The True Path Technology ™ also guarantees its long-term performance and durability. This means that Implen NanoPhotometer® is truly suitable for analyzing dsDNA, ssDNA, RNA, miRNA, oglionucleotides, quantification of proteins, peptides, and antibodies. Besides, it also very applicable for:

  • Finding out the cell density (OD600)
  • Identifying sample characteristics with spectrum absorbance between 200-900 nm automatically
  • Generating a standard curve

The NanoPhotometer N120 is the latest UV spectrophotometer from Implen which is, surely, more sophisticated because it is the advanced version of Implen NanoPhotometer NP80. This time, the N120 version is a nanovolume spectrophotometer with 12 Point Technology™ which provides up to 12 samples in a single run (multi-sample windows)! Since the 12 Point Technology™ can minimize errors as much as possible, it makes this instrument safer to use. With spectrum scan ranging between 200-900 nm and fixed path lengths 1 and 0.125 mm, and also the nanovolume detection ranging from 2-8,000 ng/µl for nucelotide samples and 0.06-230 mg/ml for BSA samples, NanoPhotometer N120 can measure samples with volume up to 2 µl (minimum) precisely. With that much amount of volume in a single run, it can even process faster, which is up to 1.7 seconds per sample!

Besides that, the additional battery that can be installed optionally can make this instrument last longer. Not to forget that it is also notably a very practical and portable spectrophotometer. Its futuristic design allows this instrument to process samples conveniently quick. It is also well-known that NanoPhotometer N120 will immediately process the samples as soon as the lid is closed, so it will not cost too much time. The interesting is, it is also reliably compatible to be integrated with variety of smart devices, and also equipped with CFR21 software (optional) which makes the data transfer run smoothly, faster, and undoubtedly secured.
