The cuvette delivery apparatus for an automatic chemical analyzer includes a magazine that stores multiple stacks of substantially rectangular cuvettes. A ram outwardly adjacent to the magazine moves an exposed cuvette from a selected stack into an awaiting compartment of a turntable. Random access is provided to all stacks within the magazine. A mechanical follower monitors the selected stack and provides stack information for updating of cuvette inventory.
