A nanodrop is a spectrometer which passes a beam of narrow-band (near-monochromatic) light through a droplet of water and measures the intensity of light transmitted through the sample. More traditional spectrophotometers use cuvettes to contain the sample and generally require considerably more volume of the analyte solution. The advantage of the nanodrop system is that by using only a drop of analyte solution, it conserves sample.

Whenever I've used Nanodrop it has been to quantify the concentration of DNA in a solution.

yes, and RNA as well
it got choices in its software of what material that youd like to measure at the moment.
It can even perform Bradford assay, well of course just the reading part though
