to blank the region

English term or phrase: to blank the region
The context: "Be sure to blank the regions of high carbon disulfide absorption." The document is related to FTIR analyses.

I know that in testing, blank can mean "prova em branco", among others, which means, according to the Brazilian Pharmacopeia: "repetir a determinação em condições idênticas e com quantidades idênticas de reagentes, omitindo-se, apenas, a substância em exame". But this is not the case here.

Thank you in advance.

tampar as regiões

A fórmula do carbon disulfide é CS2, uma molécula sensível ao infra vermelho FTIR. Entendo que deseja evitar que o espectro dele apareça no espectro da amostra. E isto deve ser feito tampando a região.
