Nanolytik® NanoSpec 2 is a research grade VIS or UV VIS Spectrophotometer with enhanced sensitivity in the UV range. The wide dynamic range and perfect other specifications make the NanoSpec UV-VIS Spectrophotometer the best UV Spectrophotometer for the most demanding applications.

Best single beam spectrophotometer

The monochromator is totally sealed and the optical surfaces are protected with a silicon dioxide membrane. The excellent optical system and electric circuit design ensures the very low stray light.

Lead screw structure

wavelength accuracy and wavelength resolution can be greatly improved by a lead screw structure.


Numerical Keys

all parameters of the spectrophotometer can be set by keyboard.


8mm optical base

a rigid die-cast aluminium base ensures the stability and reliability of the spectrophotometer.


Standard Curve

setup various standard curves according to your solutions and find the concentration of unknown solutions.


Auto wavelength

set wavelength automaticly through arrow keys on the Spectrophotometer to avoid operation errors.


Data output

Connect to a PC USB port to display spectrum scanning, kinetics and multi wavelength testing results on the screen through an optional Spectrophotometer software.

This model can be controlled by our software through the USB port. The software expands the function to Quantitative, Kinetics, Multi-wavelength and Wavelength scanning. Software can be ordered additional.


Up to 32 wavelength can be selected and multiple samples can be measured.

Quantitative, Coefficient Method (Standard Curve)

Use up to 32 standards to establish standard curve and Four methods for fitting a curve:

  • Linear fit
  • Linear through zero
  • Square fit
  • Segmented

DNA/Protein Test

Concentration and DNA purity are Quickly and easily calculated: Absorbance ratios 260nm/280nm with optional subtracted absorbance at 320nm.
DNA Concentration =62.9 x A260 - 36.0 x A280
Protein Concentration =1552 x A260 - 757.3 x A280


This mode may be used for time course scanning or reaction rate calculations. Abs. vs. time graphs are displayed on the screen in real time. Wait time and measurement time up to 12 hours may be entered with time intervals of 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30 secs and 1 min. Post-run manipulation includes re-scaling, curve tracking and selection of the part of the curve required for the rate calculation. Rate is calculated using a linear regression algorithm before multiplying by the entered factor.

Wavelength Scanning

The wavelength scan intervals are 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 1, 2, 5 nm, and Hi, Medium and Low scan speeds are available. Scan speeds vary from 100 to 23000 nm/min. Wavelengths are scanned from high to low so that the instrument waits at high wavelength. This minimizes the degradation of UV sensitive samples. Precise control of filter and lamp changes means that their effects are not seen on the final scan. Post-run manipulation includes re-scaling axes, curve tracking and peak picking.
