Spanish term or phrase: realizar el blanco
This is from the instruction manual of a complete spectrum spectrophotometer. Is is possibly talking about chlorination or some bleaching process?
TIA! Castilian Spanish to UK English

Se deberá conocer el buffer de elución en el que se encuentran resuspendidas las muestras para utilizarlo en el momento de realizar el blanco y así obtener una medida de concentración precisa.

Rough draft
The elution buffer the samples are resuspended in must be known so this can be used when creating the blank so an accurate reading of the concentration can be made.
