Description and Specification Quartz Cuvette

A cuvette is a small, transparent rectangular receptacle that comes in a variety of materials, quality standards, and dimensions. Glass cuvettes are utilized for visible-range measurements ranging from 310 to 2500 nm. In contrast, Quartz cuvettes provide exact findings across the entire UV and visible spectrum, from 200 to 2500 nm. The more consistent and efficient the measurement, the smaller the production tolerance. Cuvettes store samples for spectroscopic measurements, in which a light beam is sent through it to evaluate its absorption, transmittance, fluorescence emission, fluorescence polarization, or fluorescence lifespan.
Traditional ultraviolet-visible or fluorescence spectroscopy makes use of liquid samples. The experimental sample is poured into a cuvette, and with the help of a spectrophotometer, the researchers can test it. We can develop the cuvette of any transparent material in the wavelength range employed in the test.

The width defines the length of the light path through the sample, which influences the absorbance value computation. The smallest cuvettes have a capacity of 70 microliters, and the biggest has a capacity of 2.5 milliliters or more. The path length of cuvettes is 10 mm (0.39 in), which makes estimating the absorption coefficient easier.

Absorption begins below 170 nm, and there are no absorption bands between 170 and 250 nm in this JGS1 UV-grade fused silica. Exceptionally high transmittance over the UVB, UVA, visible, and near IR spectrums. We suggest IR Quartz Glass Cuvettes when working in the IR spectrum, especially at wavelengths larger than 2000 nm, because they have robust transmission at these wavelengths.

There are mainly two types of cuvette. One is two side transparent quartz cuvette, and another is four side transparent quartz cuvette. The four sides one is quite costly compared to the two transparent cuvettes.

Quartz Cuvette Advantages

Sample size availability
Our cuvettes are ideal for researchers with limited samples or solutions due to their small volume capacities, starting at 0.35 ml. These cuvettes allow using the least quantity of solution possible, allowing researchers to do more experiments than you would otherwise be able to.

Variable Route length
We have cuvettes with route lengths as low as 1 mm for solutions with absorption coefficients that are too high for a typical path length cuvette. By switching cuvettes, researchers may get a tenfold drop in absorbance without wasting time or solvent by diluting your solutions.

Range of transmission
Our UV Quartz cuvettes (which have a high transmission range of 200 nm to 2500 nm) are ideal for working in the UV-Visible spectrum. They have good transparency between 260 and 3600 nm and provide outstanding transmittance across the near-IR, short-IR, and mid-IR spectra.

Quartz cuvettes Applications

Quartz cuvettes are beneficial for research involving UV/VIS/NIR absorbance and fluorescence. The synthetic cuvette may be utilized in deep UV applications for spectroscopic cuvettes and is favored for fluorescent applications since it does not display background fluorescence.

How to Use it

Cuvettes are only suitable for liquid-containing samples like DNA, Protein, and Biologics Solutions. Most compounds, including organic-based solutions, may be held in CRF or HTR cuvettes. Use the cuvette as per your use. To clean the cuvette, empty the cell, rinse it with warm water and detergent, and perform a dilute acid rinse. Repeat this latest two times.

Quartz Cuvettes Safety Measures

Quartz cuvettes are reusable and must be cleaned to avoid cross-contamination. Maintain the cuvette’s cleanliness while in use. It is a critical step in ensuring the cuvette has a long and productive life. Cuvettes should never be allowed to dry out. Keep it in water or a solvent bath between uses to prevent them from drying out and sticking. Use only lens cleaning tissue or a fine wiper cloth to clean the optical sides and polished surfaces. The majority of tissue paper comprises wood fibers. The fiber wood in most paper tissues will damage the transparent polished surfaces. After drying, make sure all cuvettes are thoroughly cleaned and properly stored.

When cleaning the product, the use of goggles, safety glasses, nitrile gloves, and a lab coat is necessary. Handling concentrated hydrochloric acid (HCl) requires the researchers to use a fume hood.

Breaking an optical cuvette might result in wounds; therefore, handle them cautiously. Flammable solvents such as methanol and acetone might result in a laboratory fire. Remember to use these solvents in a fume hood to avoid inhaling them. Concentrated hydrochloric acid can burn and irritate the airways. Wear gloves and only open the solvents in a fume hood that is in use.
