Wide Mouth Rectangular Bottles

Nalgene rectangular laboratory bottles take up less shelf space than round bottles. Ideal for freezer storage down to -100°C. Their sturdy uniform wall construction and straight sides resist splitting and punctures, and their wide-mouth closure is guaranteed leakproof, making these bottles ideal for repeated, long-term use.

Made only from the highest quality plastic materials that meet pharmaceutical, laboratory and food grade standards, our plastic resins are selected to minimize additives and reduce potential leachables.

Thermo Scientific Nalgene bottles are manufactured in our ISO 13485:2003 registered manufacturing facilities. Most of our plastic resin materials are DMF registered and meet a number of regulatory specifications including: USP Class VI, EP monographs, EU food-contact directives, CONEG, RoHS, CA Prop 65, SARA Title III Sec. 313, and 21 CFR pt 177. Nalgene containers are made from a wide variety of plastic types to meet the needs of many laboratory applications.

Footnote:
1. HDPE and LDPE are acceptable for: Nonacid, aqueous products; may contain salt, sugar or both (pH above 5.0). Dairy products and modifications; oil-in-water emulsions, high or low fat. Moist bakery products with surface containing no free fat or oil. Dry solids with the surfaces containing no free fat or oil (no end-test required) and under all conditions as described in Table 2 of FDA Regulation 177.1520 except condition A - high temperature sterilization (e.g. over 100° C / 212° F)

*The term “leakproof” applies to Thermo Scientific Nalgene products that meet the following criteria: a) Bottle/flask/funnel closure systems with closures smaller than 100mm, after they are filled with water, inverted, withstand air pressure of 2psig for 2 minutes, and no water escapes;. b) Bottle/funnel/flask closure systems of larger than 100mm after they are filled with water, inverted for 15 minutes, and no water escapes. Note: these tests, using other liquids, may not yield the same results. To ensure safe usage, customers are advised to test Thermo Scientific Nalgene bottles and closures under conditions of their planned applications. Thermo Scientific Nalgene products are leakproof at ambient temperature and pressure when used with their Nalgene closures.
^Except for oxidizing acids, see "Oxidizing acids, strong."
