os grade
optical spectrography grade


Explanation:
Optical Spectrography. Once the only means of analysing trace-elements but each element emits such an array of spectra in the visible light range, that interfences and overlap are not only common but almost universal.
www.geokem.com/glossary.html

A cuvette is a kind of laboratory glassware, usually a small tube of circular or square cross section, sealed at one end, made of plastic, glass, or optical grade quartz and designed to hold samples for spectroscopic experiments. The best cuvettes are as clear as possible, without impurities that might affect a spectroscopic reading.

\"os grade\"
grau OS


Explanation:
primeiro este tipo de siglas não se costuma traduzir, por isso deixaria assim. é o caso do grau p.a. que é "para análise" e embora "for analysis" não tenha as mesmas iniciais em inglês é usada assim, penso que do original em latim.

segundo, embora fosse lógico que OS fosse espectroscopia óptica é um pouco estranho que um par de cuvetes que vêm com um espectrofotómetro não sejam próprias para usar com esse equipamento. por outro lado quando se usa "spectroscopy grade" para produtos químicos usa-se só assim, porque a palavra espectroscopia já implica ser óptica.

de resto não consegui encontrar OS grade em lado nenhum.
