Laboratory Bottles

Laboratory bottles cover a wide range of uses within a laboratory environment, with each type of bottle having a different purpose to another. There is a wide selection of bottle shapes, sizes and materials that can meet your needs, as well as some bottles that are specifically tailored to measuring liquids that feature distinct printed graduations in millilitres or fluid ounces to allow for accurate measurement.

Nowadays, plastic bottles are the preferred type of material used compared to the traditional glass bottles. The main advantages of using plastic is that it is generally a lot more economical, as well as being super durable and safe to use. Although glass is easier to clean and heat-proof, it’s a lot more fragile and can easily break, making it more costly to replace. Generally, plastic laboratory bottles are not autoclavable.

Types of Bottles

  • Storage bottle – suitable or a wide range of storage and sampling tasks
  • Wash bottle - squeeze bottle with a nozzle, used to rinse various pieces of laboratory glassware, such as test tubes and round bottom flasks. They are sturdy and are always straight shooters
  • Commonly used materials

They provide good chemical compatibility with a wide variety of lab reagents, including most acids, bases, alcohols, aldehydes, esters and aliphatic hydrocarbons, and can withstand temperatures of up to 120 degrees Celsius
  • LDPE – Low Density Polyethylene bottles. These are not as strong or dense as HDPE, but they have the ability to be very squeezable and can handle rapid temperature changes. They are also recyclable and environmentally friendly
  • PP – Polypropylene, low cost and flexible strength because of its semi-crystalline nature. This material has a good chemical resistance over a wide range of bases and acids and will not wear away over time or rust
