The Thermo Scientific™ Nalgene™ carboy advantage

When using carboys for critical applications, standard laboratory carboys won't do. More supporting documentation, choices and designs sensitive to the necessary cleaning validations are just a few things to look for. Customization with fluid transfer options, pre-sterilization, and forced extraction studies are additional benefits you can expect from Thermo Scientific Nalgene carboys and jerricans.

  • Well supported with off-the-shelf, validation binders, and extractables studies
  • Screw top, leakproof seals to ensure sample integrity with sanitary fitting options available for easier cleaning validations
  • Available in LDPE, HDPE, Fluorinated, PP, PC, PETG up to 50 L
  • Rectangular options for dense storage efficiency and round options to facilitate stirring
  • Ability to provide custom tubulation for specific fluid transfer requirements
  • Sterile, single-use option can eliminate the need for in-house packaging and sterilization
