Economical, durable, and gentle on delicate glass or quartz cuvettes, this all-plastic washer replaces costly, antiquated devices that are often more fragile than the cuvettes they wash. Comes complete with a 500 cc polypropylene vacuum flask, Vikem(R) vinly stopper, and 3' of PVC tubing ready for connection to a vacuum line. The mouth of an inverted cuvette is pressed against the rubber cushion to induce suction. Water or other cleaning fluid poured into the 89 mm (3.5") diameter funnel is forcibly sprayed into the cuvete and then drains into the flask. Continued pressure on the cuvette creates an air flow which dries it. A final wash in acetone aids in removing water droplets.
Minimum cuvette I.D. must be 3 mm or larger to fit over the spray nozzle.
