Flow Cells

  • Two Types Available: Absorbance and Fluorescence
  • Made of Stainless Steel or PEEK
  • Sapphire Windows for Extreme Resistance
  • SMA Fiber Connectors
  • Compatible with Standard HPLC Fittings

Absorbance and fluorescence measurements of fluids moving through a flow injection system require the use of special in-line optical flow cells. These flow cells are offered by Sarspec in two optical configurations: for absorbance, cells are designed in Z shape with 10 mm pathlength and for fluorescence, the cells are designed with a right-angle configuration between excitation and emission. Both configurations are designed to provide optimum flow, maximum light intensity and minimum bubble entrapment.
