Spectrocell manufactures a large number of custom cells built according to customer design and specifications. Types include flow cells, refractometer cells, micro cells, and ultra-small volume cells with volumes of .01 to .001 ml. Custom optical coatings can be added to any of our cells

Gas filled cells permanently fused closed are also available, customer to specify gas and pressure desired. We have been successful with many types of gasses including oxygen, ozone, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, nitrogen, argon, methane, ethane, and others, including precise mixtures of gases and special isotopes. Chemically pure gases or mixtures of gases are permanently sealed inside quartz cells at pressures from slightly below atmospheric to rarified.

Spectrocell is capable of quoting directly to your design in production of prototype quantities. We can also work with your engineers or design personnel to assist in development of a design to meet your needs.

Spectrocell can grind a variety of glass and quartz materials to meet your specific size, shape, and finishing needs. Our process uses different types of grinding, such as high precision contour jig grinding, spherical and cylindrical grinding, on materials including optical glass and fused silica. We can machine parts as large as 12” in diameter with tight tolerances. We use OD/ID grinders, surface grinders, jig grinders, and lapping and polishing machines. We have produced custom glass parts for customers in a variety of industries including electronics, medical, and government.
