Quartz Cuvette VS Glass cuvette
1.The Glass cuvette can’t be used in UV ultra violet laser light < 320nm. However the Quartz Cuvette works well for UV light < 320nm, such as 300nm and 270nm.
2.The Quartz Cuvette is more expensive than regular Glass cuvette .
How to Tell If You Have a Glass Cuvette
The best method to tell if it’s a quartz or glass cuvette, pop it into your spectrophotometer, run a wavelength scan from 200-700 nm.
If you see transmission start at 190 nm this is a UV quartz cuvette.
If the transmission starts at 340 nm this is a glass cuvette.
If transmission starts at 220 nm this is an IR quartz cuvette.
