Heavy-duty, reusable storage containers for media and other biological solutions
Caution: Do not tighten cap 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.
Low-expansion borosilicate glass provides greater thermal strength. Bottles have permanent white enamel graduations and a marking spot. Sizes 100mL and above feature a glass bead that indicates full capacity line. Bottles are also ideal for dry heat sterilization (180°C) when used with optional red PBT caps and red ETFE pouring rings. All parts withstand repeated autoclaving.
Ordering information: Each bottle includes a linerless, one-piece, autoclavable orange polypropylene plug seal cap. All sizes except the 25mL bottle (16157-071) include a drip-free pouring ring.
