The wide variety of Starna® products on this web site are manufactured in the Starna Scientific (formerly Optiglass Ltd) factory founded in 1964, whose lineage of optical expertise is traceable to the early part of the last century.
Starna Scientific Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of the international group of Starna® companies whose reputation is synonymous with quality and service in the manufacture and supply of spectrophotometer cells, optical components and certified reference materials around the world.
In the 1950s, the founders of Optiglass developed and perfected the technique of fully fusing component parts by heat alone, without the distortion of optical surfaces. This major advance transformed the design and production of spectrophotometer cells and associated products. During manufacture of all component parts, special care is taken to avoid contamination by the use of stringent cleaning processes. Together with mandatory inspection procedures these stringent cleaning processes ensure that all products leave the factory in a pristine contamination-free condition, with an unconditional guarantee against faulty workmanship. This special treatment of cells also reduces bubble adhesion, which is of particular importance in flow cell applications
