The patented Eppendorf UVette, a fully UV-transparent disposable cuvette, has a new and improved shape.

With a larger optical window, open side walls and easy-to-read path length indication, the cuvette is claimed to be more user friendly while still delivering the same results.

The UVette offers purity, convenience and precision for spectrophotometric analysis in the UV and VIS range, according to the company.

As well as being the a suitable partner for the Eppendorf Biophotometer Plus, the UVette can be used in other photometers or spectrometers in conjunction with an adapter.

The larger optical window enhances the UVette’s compatibility with instruments from other suppliers and reduces stray light effects, while the open side wall design gives greater sample visibility.

A single 90 rotation provides two optical path lengths.

The path length indication enables users to identify the correct orientation (2mm and 10mm) for their application.

Each UVette is manufactured from crystal-clear plastic, which is UV and VIS transparent between 220nm and 1,600nm.

Pipetting can be monitored clearly – volume markings show 500 microlitres and 1,000 microlitres – while the UVette’s design prevents the capillary effect so that liquids remain in the centre of the measuring area (even minimum volumes of 50 microlitres).

The frosted grip is suitable for labelling and the inward-facing optical windows provide protection against scratches.

Individually packaged, UVette cuvettes are PCR clean and protein free to recover samples without the risk of degradation or contamination.

However, if this purity is not necessary, the UVette routine pack is also available.

The new-shape Eppendorf UVette is suitable for measuring precious samples, quantifying low concentrations and recovering samples for downstream applications.
