1 Nalgene Value Pack
*NOTE: Values listed in the chart above represent typical contents for major constituents. Various grades of plastics may vary from these values. Additional data on trace elements associated with plastics can be found in: Selection and Cleaning of Plastic Containers for Storage of Trace Element Samples, John R. Moody and Richard Lindstrom, ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY, Vol. 49, Page 2264, December 1977.
As the chart “Summary of Average Element Content of Plastics and Borosilicate Glass” shows, for most trace metal analysis, plastic is generally “cleaner” or less contaminated than glass. However, plastic does contain trace levels of certain metals.
Nalgene bottles are available in a variety of weights and packaging configurations to accommodate a broad range of applications, budgets and scales of use. Choose a lightweight bottle for light-duty solutions, or a standard weight bottle for more critical containment. Start with small quantity lab packs and scale up to bulk packed production bottles without changing plastics.
Prevent chemical accidents in the lab. Bottles are pre-labeled with chemical identification and safe handling information following the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) specifications as applicable to secondary laboratory containers. Choose from Nalgene™ Right-to-Understand LDPE or FEP Wash Bottles.
Set the standard for quality and performance, while protecting your valuable research.
