NanoPhotometer N50

Best in µ-volume

Best in class microvolume spectroscopy with the convenience of a lightweight portable instrument with a built-in 7 inch LCD glove compatible touchscreen with flexible unit control options. Built-in vortex provides sample uniformity of homogenous samples 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.

Mobile Design

Microvolume spectroscopy can now be taken anywhere in the small light-weight size of 20x20x12 cm and between 3.8 to 5 kg depending on configuration. Mobility is redefined with an optional built-in battery pack for up to 10 hours of stand-alone operation.

Stand-Alone Operation

No computer required. Built-in Computer with high performance quad core Q7 1 GHz processor and 32 GB of onboard memory provide powerful and easy storage of methods and data.


Sample Compression Technology™ provides unmatched precision and accuracy with reliable measurement geometry of challenging samples including proteins. A capillary film is formed between two quartz surfaces with each sample eliminating the need for surface tension.

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.

Endless Connectivity

Equipped with Wi-Fi, built-In HotSpot, LAN, HDMI and USB A/B interface connections for remote instrument control, data accessibility and printing. NPOS now supports AirPrint /IPP compatible printers supporting PDF format, printers compatible with the HP universal driver and DYMO label printers (cryo and standard labels). The NanoPhotometer® is compatible with 1 and 2D bar code readers allowing for flexible and streamlined data entry. Unique file server functionality allows access of data stored on the NanoPhotometer® drive from any computer accessing the lab network.

Universal Data Output

Every NanoPhotometer® is able to generate formatted Excel and PDF document files for data processing or archiving of measurements on the lab network. The capability to print full page reports, labels and cryo labels via USB and through a network connection lends users the upmost flexibility for data output. Supported printers include AirPrint/IPP compatible printers supporting PDF format, printers with HP universal printer driver capability and DYMO label printers.

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

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.

Flexible Unit Control

Mobile and easy control of the NanoPhotometer® is possible via Wi-Fi from tablets or smartphones (Android OS & iOS). Easy control from PCs (Windows & Mac) with fast and flexible connection options including Wi-Fi, USB and LAN.

Maintenance Free

Sealed optics without any moving parts eliminates the need for costly and time consuming recalibrations. Durable, inert surfaces provide an easy to clean maintenance free design. Compatible with Worldwide Pharmacopeia Requirements. 1.8 nm bandwidth built in. IQ/OQ package available.

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.
