Details and Specifications of Quartz Cuvette?

A quartz cuvette is a tiny, transparent, rectangular container with various dimensions, materials, and quality requirements. It is a clear, transparent container made of plastic, glass, or fused quartz with straight sides and a circular or square cross-section. It is sealed at one end. Liquid samples are placed inside it for spectroscopic measurements, which involve passing a light beam through the sample to determine its absorbance, transmittance, fluorescence intensity, fluorescence polarization, and fluorescence lifetime. Because quartz is so transparent in the ultraviolet as well as in the visible regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, it can be used to evaluate samples with repeatable results and under a variety of temperature conditions.

Moreover, quartz is resistant to a wide variety of common solvents and chemicals and is chemically inert, allowing for repeatable measurements without cuvette degradation. Because quartz is a sturdy and hard material, handling and cleaning will not likely scratch or harm it. Two-sided transparent and four-sided transparent cuvettes are the two main varieties. Compared to the two side transparent cuvettes, the four-sided cuvette is relatively expensive. It is helpful for studies involving fluorescence and absorbance in the UV, VIS, and NIR.

It can be assembled with or without glue by heating the quartz glass to a high temperature and then applying pressure to fuse the pieces. It comes in various volumes, ranging from 100 µL to 3500 µL.


  • Resistance to scratches: Scratches on the cuvette's sides scatter light and lead to mistakes. The cuvette is shielded from unintentionally striking and being scraped by the machine casing by a rubber or plastic rack.
  • Volume: A cuvette's maximum safe capacity for holding a liquid sample is indicated by its volume. It can have volumes ranging from 100 µL to 3500 µL.
  • Shape: Most cuvettes have a rectangular shape and measure roughly 12.5 x 12.5 x 45 (mm).
  • Accuracy: From 200 to 2500 nm, the full UV and visible spectrum, quartz cuvettes yield precise results. The production tolerance decreases with increasing measurement efficiency and consistency.
  • Chemical Resistance: It can withstand a broad range of common solvents and chemicals without degrading the cuvette.
  • Transmission Range: It has an extended transmission range from 190 to 2,500 nm, making it an appropriate choice for UV, VIS, and NIR spectrum experiments.

Applications Of Quartz Cuvette

Quartz cuvette is used in UV spectroscopy, and hence, it is useful for studies on fluorescence and UV, VIS, and NIR absorbance. It is also useful in conducting measurements repeatedly without being hindered by cuvette deterioration. Quartz cuvettes also help in taking precise measurements in a variety of temperature settings and ensure repeatable results when assessing samples. Because quartz is a sturdy and hard material, handling and cleaning will not likely scratch or damage it. Since synthetic quartz doesn't exhibit background fluorescence, it can be used in deep UV applications. It is advised for fluorescent applications. Mechanical stressing of cuvettes used in circular dichroism experiments is never recommended because it can cause birefringence in the quartz and skew measurements.

How To Use?

  • A UV quartz cuvette must be appropriately cleaned before use.
  • Completely dry the cuvette before use.
  • Utilize a cuvette rack as it provides stabilit.
  • Cuvettes utilized in circular dichroism experiments must never undergo mechanical stress.
  • Immerse the cuvette in water or a solvent bath in between uses.

Safety Guidelines

  • A cuvette should be well-cleaned before use to eliminate contaminants that could interfere with the measurement.
  • To prevent scratches, keep the clear sides of the cuvettes away from any hard surface.
  • Wear gloves at all times when working with quartz cuvettes.
  • Before using, make sure the cuvette is dry.
  • Cuvettes utilized in circular dichroism experiments must never undergo mechanical stress.
  • To clean the cuvette, never use strong alkaline solutions like laboratory glassware detergent.
  • Between uses, keep the cuvette submerged in water or a solvent bath.
