Spectrocell Inc. is an outgrowth of Precision Glass Products Company, a pioneer in the manufacturing of absorption cells for spectrophotometry, colorimetry, and fluorimeter. Operation has been continuous since 1955. Today, Spectrocell is the only facility in the United States dedicated to the manufacturing of cells and cuvettes. This facility provides for the needs of customers large and small, individual users, as well as large volume production for OEMs. Spectrocell also has the capability to manufacture custom designs for research or prototypes.

Spectrocell offers a wide choice of cells and cuvettes to meet nearly any imaginable need of the analytical spectroscopist, in the visible, UV, FUV, and NIR ranges.
