Optical Borosilicate Cells
Borosilicate glass cells in this series are manufactured by grinding and polishing the component parts and, ultimately fire-fusing them together into a cell. The windows are optically polished. The fire-fused structure, a finished cell, is then annealed in a furnace to remove any strain induced in the fusing process. Not all manufactures use borosilicate glass in their glass cells. The borosilicate glass used by Spectrocell is very similar to Pyrex ®, a high quality glass used in laboratory apparatus which is harder and more chemically resistant than soda-lime or other inexpensive glasses.
Features of Optical Borosilicate Cells
- All cells and cuvettes are available with anti-reflection (AR) coatings or mirror coatings for an additional charge.
