Heavy-duty round bottles are made from low actinic glass
These media bottles are made of Pyrex® borosilicate glass.
Caution: Do not tighten caps immediately after autoclaving as the vacuum resulting from cooling can cause breakage. Bottles larger than 2L should not be used with bottle top filter units or in other applications involving vacuum pressure as breakage may occur. A vented cap is not recommended for use on the 5L and 10L bottles for venting during autoclaving.
They are ideal for storing or transporting light-sensitive materials. Sizes 100mL and above have a glass bead that indicates full capacity line. Optional red PBT caps and red ETFE pouring rings are available for dry heat sterilization (180°C). Bottles feature permanent white enamel graduations and marking spots.
Ordering information: Each bottle includes a linerless, one-piece, autoclavable, orange polypropylene, plug-seal cap. All sizes except the 25mL bottle include a drip-free pouring ring. For replacement caps, pouring rings and septa, see 16157-071 series.
