Ultimate Data Security

Malware, viruses and ransomware are serious threats to instrumentation working on Android or Windows based platforms. The proprietary NanoPhotometer® Operating System NPOS protects data in a secure environment immune to known malicious software. Whether running Apps on the NanoPhotometer/control device or downloading precious measurement results, your data is safe. For additional security the NanoPhotometer® does not allow browsing on the internet whilst providing safe access to control devices like computers, tablets and smart phones
