The compact specialist microvolume photometer

NanoView Photometer in the lab

The FastGene® NanoView Photometer is a small micro sample analyzer with a very easy and convenient user interface.
Nucleic acids and proteins are quantified with highest reliablility via absorption measurement at 260 nm, 280 nm and 600 nm.


One compact device
for the quantification of the main biomolecules (e.g., dsDNA, ssDNA, RNA and proteins) due to absorption measurement at 260 nm, 280 nm and 600 nm (cuvette)
due to a microvolume (2 µL sample volume)
Convenient utility
due to very easy and intuitive menu
High reliability


in results due to 1) the patented slope algorithm (light path optimization technique), 2) due to the integrated baseline correction with an additional LED at 360 nm and 3) 10 pre-configurated measurement modes minimizing application errors
Clean workplace
due to glove-compatible LCD touch-screen
due to integrated control unit
Flexible usage
e.g., in training laboratories, due to a small footprint  (14,5 cm x 19 cm) and light weight (1.4 kg)
Comfortable and safe data management
due to alternative saving at the device and download to a USB flash drive or smartphone
Reduced application time
due to the series-measurement function and no need for a lamp warming-up

The FastGene® NanoView Photometer uses a special light path optimization technique (slope algorithm) to enable measurement of a wide range of absorbance.

Measurement and configuration

The stated factor of each pre-configurated measurement mode is set as the default value. Therefore, no adjustment is needed.

  • Nucleic acids: dsDNA | ssDNA | RNA | Factor=?*
  • Proteins: OD600 | Protein | Lysozyme | BSA | IgG | Factor=?*

*Maximal flexibility and specificity is achieved by the input mode (Factor=?) which enables the user to set a custom-specific factor value which is different from the default value.

1 review for FastGene NanoView Photometer

  1. Montse Masoliver, Head of the Bioscience Laboratories, Facultat de Ciència i Tecnologia de la Universitat de Vic

    La veritat es que ens va molt bé, els resultats els comparem amb l’altre que tenim que és una nanodrop i te la mateixa sensibilitat i quasi millor repetibilitat, a més es molt més portable i menys delicat cosa que en el nostre cas és molt important donat que l’hem de moure d’un lab a un altre al llarg del curs per tema de logística de pràctiques docents , resumint estem molt contents i o en tenim cap queixa al contrari i més si tenim en compte la relació qualitat preu, baixa que repetiríem sens dubte si en tinguéssim necessitat.

    Translation by NIPPON Genetics EUROPE:

    The truth is that we are doing very well, we compare the results with the other one we have which is a nanodrop and has the same sensitivity and almost better repeatability, in addition it is much more portable and less delicate which in our case is very important given that we have to move it from one lab to another throughout the course due to the logistics of teaching practices, in summary we are very happy and we have no complaints on the contrary and more if we take into account the quality-price ratio, low that we would repeat without a doubt if we needed it.
