Title: FLUID PREPARATION WITH ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT
Abstract:
A device suitable for preparing fluid samples for chemical analysis, the device comprising: an ultraviolet light source; an ultraviolet reflector arranged to reflect ultraviolet light emitted from the ultraviolet light source; an ultraviolet transmitter being located between the ultraviolet light source and the ultraviolet reflector so as to transmit ultraviolet light emitted from the ultraviolet light source to the ultraviolet reflector; and a fluid path, at least a portion of the fluid path being located between the ultraviolet transmitter and the ultraviolet reflector. In use, a fluid containing one or more analyte chemical species flows along the fluid path and the emitted and reflected ultraviolet light cause degradation of at least one of the analyte chemical species therein.
