Rely on plastic beakers for a safer alternative to glass, especially in larger sizes. They won’t break, chip or shatter during use and cleaning. Lightweight and easy to handle. Chemical resistance, heat tolerance (not for use on hot plates), and spout design make Thermo Scientific™ Nalgene™ Griffin low-form beakers a perfect long-term solution for your graduated beaker choice. Meeting the ISO/DIN 7056 International Standards for Laboratory Plastic Beakers, our polypropylene and polymethylpentene beakers enable precise measurements. Nalgene beakers with handles offer reliable support and dispensing control. Nalgene beakers are made only from high quality laboratory grade plastic materials for dependably lower levels of potential leachables and extractables, so you can rely on them for everyday lab use without interfering with your work.
