cantera virgen/de referencia

Blank = blanco en español (en términos de análisis). En química esto es normalmente una muestra a la que no se le añade analito sino solamente reactivos. Esto con el fin de tener un valor de referencia en caso de que los reactivos en sí emitan alguna señal.

Como estamos hablando de una cantera, no creo que sea adecuado usar "cantera blanco". De hecho el término no lo encuentro en ninguno de los idiomas. Lo único que se me ocurre es cantera virgen o de referencia.
