A Ultraviolet-Visible (UV-Vis) spectrophotometer is used in spectroscopy analysis to help in determining absorbance or transmittance of discrete wavelengths (UV or visible light radiation) through the sample. A UV-Vis cuvette is also necessary to hold the sample needed by the UV-Vis spectrophotometer during the analysis.
The choice of cuvette depends on your application. Using an appropriate UV-Vis cuvette is required for your analysis to get an accurate measurement of your sample. There are different types of UV-Vis cuvette cells, made mainly from quartz and glass materials. UV-Vis cuvettes come in various dimensions with different path lengths, ranging from 0.1mm to 100mm, with the standard cuvette pathlength at 10mm. Micro and semi-micro cuvettes are available for analysis of small sample volume.

Frequently Asked Questions About UV-Vis Cuvettes
1. What is the difference between glass and quartz cuvettes?
Glass cuvettes are transparent to visible light and are therefore used for measurement in the visible light range (320 to 2500 nm). They are however not suitable for analysis in the ultraviolet (UV) range (200 to 320 nm) as they absorb UV light.
If your analysis is using wavelengths in the UV range, you would need to use a quartz cuvette. Quartz cuvettes are transparent in both UV and visible light ranges (200 to 2500 nm). They can therefore be used for analysis in both UV and visible light ranges.
Are you looking for quartz or glass cuvette for your spectrophotometry measurements? We supply both glass and quartz cells in various dimensions and light paths including our standard cells, fluorescence cells, microcells, semi-micro cells, flow cells, and more, for application in UV-Vis and fluorescence spectroscopy.
2. Can I use a UV-Vis cuvette for fluorescence analysis?
No, you should never use a UV-Vis cuvette for fluorescence spectroscopy. Although the material used for UV-Vis cuvettes and fluorescence cuvettes are similar, the number of polished sides for the two cuvettes is different. In fluorescence spectroscopy, the detector is perpendicular to the light source. Therefore, it requires all four windows to be polished whereas UV-Vis cuvettes only have two polished sides.
