This BD Biosciences cylindrical roller bottle has a polystyrene body, a tissue culture-treated interior, and a polyethylene cap. This roller bottle is commonly used on rollers for cell culture. It has a polystyrene body for durability and dimensional stability. Its cylindrical shape is used for a wide variety of applications that require fluid containment. The knurled rings at the top and base of the bottle provide traction on rollers. This bottle is available with a pleated interior to increase the area for cell growth, and the interior surface is tissue-culture treated to promote cell attachment and growth. The polyethylene cap secures contents and helps prevent spills and evaporation. The polyethylene cap is available with a vent for gas exchange or as a solid cap. The bottle is sterilized by gamma irradiation for applications that require sterility, and it is suitable for use in cell culture applications.
Lab bottles are used to store, hold, and mix liquids, powders, and other substances in a wide variety of scientific industries. Lab bottles have a more pronounced neck and shoulder than jars. Lab bottles are manufactured with a combination of characteristics in order to meet the demands of particular applications, such as for solution dispensing, mixing, and weighing, and use in centrifuge operations. They come in many shapes for specific applications, with a variety of mouth or nozzle shapes and sizes for specific use. Lab bottles are made from materials, such as glass (borosilicate or soda-lime) and an array of plastics, which are selected for chemical and thermal expansion resistance, transparency, and their adaptability in a variety of applications. Lab bottle interiors, caps, and lids are often lined with a protective material. Caps and lids help seal bottles to prevent solutions from spilling. The capacity refers to the fluid amount held by a lab bottle, and is commonly measured in milliliters (mL) and liters (l), and sometimes in ounces (oz). Lab bottles are suitable for use in chemistry and biology applications, as well as in pharmaceutical and scientific testing.
BD Biosciences, a division of BD, manufactures equipment and labware for cell culture analysis and applications. BD, founded as Becton, Dickinson and Company in 1897, is headquartered in Franklin Lakes, NJ.
