I’m sure it’s just a coincidence, but for some reason I’ve been getting a bunch of requests for Wash Bottles lately.
I myself, not coming from a lab background other than school, the majority of
my experience with the 500,000 plus laboratory items, comes from working here at LabPlanet.
Needless to say, selling lab gear is not boring. So when looking at an item like Wash Bottles, the closest thing that I relate to them is when I use to do a lot of biking and using a similar bottle to keep myself hydrated. All kidding aside, these bottles are constructed much better than the sqeeze bottles that I had. Made from Polypropylene these bottles are also autoclavable. In reality, I understand that the make up and colors are for a specific reason and purpose.
Features include a one-piece polypropylene stem and closure The transparency makes liquid contents easy to view, while the bottles flexibility maks it easy for dispensing. The draw tube is actually welded into cap to prevent separation and leakage.
Standard sizes are typically 500 mL t0 1 L . The color coding is as follows: acetone (red closure), ethanol (natural closure), isopropanol (yellow closure), methanol (green closure), toluene (red closure), and water (blue closure).
Note: LDPE wash bottles are intended for short term dispensing use only and not for storage of acetone, dichloromethane, toluene, and 1,1,1-trichloroethane.
As always, I would encourage you to contact any of our staff here at LabPlanet with any questions that you may have.
