if you clean cuvettes between runs..
we have in our lab a set-up which hooks on to your house vacuum line
and essentially it contains a reservoir to put cleaning solvent in
and then it vacuums the solvent into/out of the cuvettes (with the
cuvettes being upside down)

typically we clean the cuvettes with 95% ethanol thoroughly and then with
water.. the use of the vacuum, allows the cuvettes to come out dry as well
