Mike & Will's Helpful SmartSpec™ Tips
WARNING: Beyond this point you may find EXTREMELY helpful tips concerning how to use the Spectrophotometer to get your project done right!
|Turn the SmartSpec™ on 10 to 15 minutes before you wish to use it — this allows the spectrophotometer to warm up and ensures accurate readings.|
Be sure that the full 3 milliliters of solution is put into both the "blank" cuvette and the sample cuvette(s) — a cuvette with less than 3 ml solution will likely yield an inaccurate reading.
|Before inserting any cuvette into the spec, thoroughly wipe off all four sides with accuwipes (which can be found in the microbiology lab next to the microwave).|
