The Kimble Kimax 74505-20 20mL scintillation vial has a clear borosilicate body and a white polypropylene cap with a foamed polyethylene liner. The size 22 white polypropylene screw cap has a foam-lined polyethylene liner for use with mild acids, alkalis, solvents, alcohols, oils, and aqueous solutions. The clear borosilicate body enables samples to be seen and meets USP Type 1 and ASTM International E438, Type 1, Class A specifications for low-expansion borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass has a low coefficient of thermal expansion and is resistant to thermal stress. The package includes five shrink-wrapped trays of 100 vials packaged in cellular trays with alpha-numeric coordinates for easy identification. Scintillation vials are used for packaging or storing small samples, and in laboratory applications in chemistry, education, research, and life sciences.
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.
