This Wheaton French square media bottle has a soda-lime glass body, a polypropylene screw cap, and a PTFE cap liner. This media bottle is used to hold samples and for storage, mixing, and sampling applications. The soda-lime glass body resists heat, thermal expansion, and shock, and can be used for packaging some dry powders. Its square shape is used for space-efficient storage, and for applications that require stability and gripping ease. The bottle has a white polypropylene screw cap with a polyethylene foam disc liner to secure contents and help prevent spills and evaporation. An additional PTFE (polytetrafluroethylene) facing resists many chemicals, moisture, and temperatures ranging from -400 to 500 degrees F. This bottle comes with an adhesive hazardous communication label for content identification and safety information. The soda-lime glass conforms to United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) Type III requirements for solvent, chemical, and sample storage, such as some dry powder types, and use in dry-heat sterilization applications. This bottle is suitable for use in mixing and storing analytical lab samples, high purity chemicals, acids and solvents, environmental samples, pharmaceuticals, and diagnostic reagents.
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.
