The Public Lab Store Starter kits for DIY environmental science

Cuvettes (qty 10 or 100)

Note: we are no longer able to provide caps with the cuvettes. Because of this, we have lowered our prices.

We now offer cuvettes for use in your experiments. We are encouraging community development of our spectroscopy tools to allow for materials analysis, and we hope having these available will aid in that research.

 NB: The spectrometry products we offer do not currently work out of the box with these cuvettes. These parts are to aid in development of that additional capacity for the tool.

These are disposable polymethylmethacrylate cuvettes. They measure 12x12x45mm, and have a 2.5ml capacity. Each has two clear sides, and two fluted sides. They are Globe Scientific part number 112147.

The caps are made of UV polyethylene, and are BrandTech SKU 759240.

We are actively developing a cuvette frame to work with the Desktop Spectrometer, using both laser and LED UV light sources. This is all very new, so watch the wiki and research notes at, and be sure to post your own findings.

10 cuvettes for $4

100 cuvettes for $27.50

Community Science Forum: Frac Sand

Our quarterly print publication has a new name, and a wider scope. It's now called the Community Science Forum. This issue is focused on frac sand, and in particular on the work being done in western Wisconsin by community groups concerned about air and water quality impacts of mining operations there.

Usually $5, we're offering the new issue at an experimental price of $2 plus shipping.
