Cuvettes and UV-cuvettes enable precise results in spectroscopy due to an optically perfect transmission range. Disposable plastic cuvettes for the UV/VIS range are ideal for the photometric determination of proteins, ssDNA, dsDNA or RNA. Contaminations are reduced to a minimum. Can be used in many wavelength ranges.

Frequently Asked Questions (Cuvettes)

Which is the wavelength range recommended for BRAND UV-cuvettes?

BRAND UV-cuvettes can be used for photometric measurements between 230 and 900 nm.

Which is the wavelength range recommended for BRAND PS cuvettes?

BRAND PS cuvettes can be used for photometric measurements between 340 and 900 nm.

Why do UV cuvettes micro show another transmission curve than UV cuvettes semi-micro and macro?

The differences in the transmission curves of the cuvettes are caused by different wall thicknesses. While the wall of macro- and semimicro cuvettes is about 1 mm thick, the micro cuvettes show a wall thickness of 0,65 mm only. This results in better light transmission of the micro cuvettes.

What does the term center height z mean?

The center height z is the distance between the bottom of the cuvette and the center of the beam of light. Because photometers can vary in the beam height (and so in the center height z), BRAND offers its UV-cuvette micro with two different center heights, 8.5 and 15 mm.

Which is the wavelength range recommended for BRAND PMMA-cuvettes?

BRAND PMMA cuvettes can be used for photometric measurements between 300 and 900 nm.

Are BRAND UV-cuvettes suitable for fluorescence measurements?

For fluorescence measurements cuvettes must have four optical windows.

Are BRAND UV-cuvettes autoclavable?

The UV polymer should not be used above 70°C, so BRAND UV-cuvettes are not autoclavable. BRAND offers UV-cuvettes micro individually wrapped (7592 15 and 7592 35); these cuvettes are free of DNase, DNA and RNase.

How long is the light path of BRAND cuvettes?

All BRAND cuvettes have a light path of 10 mm.

Are PS cuvettes autoclavable?

Polystyrene (PS) should not be used above 70°C. PS cuvettes are not autoclavable.
