HDPE pans

Nalgene Pans, Trays and Baskets are made rugged with the rigors of lab life in mind. Nalgene pans have rolled rims and heavy wall construction to hold a full load of labware and other items to be moved about the lab. Use them for everything from dish pans to secondary containment for chemicals. Choose from an assortment of polypropylene pans, trays and baskets for autoclaving and sterilizing labware and instruments. Plastic construction is quieter than metal pans, and doesn't dent or corrode. Polypropylene and polyethylene pans are compatible with a wide variety of lab reagents and cleaning solutions including most acids, bases and alcohols.
