The firm said in response to the growing demand for cells that work in Cary/Varian machines, it has added an additional z-dimension option of 20mm to the product line.
It added while the majority of commercial spectrophotometers and fluorometers use the z-dimension of 8.5 or 15mm, machines such as the Cary 5000 and the 6000i models are higher end and use the z-dimension of 20mm.
Z-dimension or beam height is the height of the spectrophotometer’s light beam from the bottom of the cuvette holder.
On its Type 601 offerings, the company has added the 20mm z-dimension option for the 1, 2, 5 and 10mm selections and for the Type 605, the 0.1, 0.2, 1 and 2mm lightpaths are available in 20mm z-dimension. The Type 606 now features a 20mm height for the 5 and 10mm lightpath option.
Most of the cells are made with oval-shaped flow chambers to reduce hard angles where debris can be trapped.
Each FireflySci Agilent flow cell is designed with a dome-shaped cavity to reduce bubble formation. Bubbles can create interference in measurements and disrupt any continuous ones and the cells are produced to withstand pressures of 5 bars.
Alongside its Agilent flow cell line, FireflySci offers colorimeter cells, dye laser cells, UHV cuvettes, HPLC flow cells and others.
