Berlin Packaging's range of science lab bottles provides containers suitable for safely storing products for use in commercial, school, and hobbyist laboratories. Bottles are available in a range of sizes, shapes, and materials to meet many laboratory needs. Choose from multiple materials and closures to match your product.

What Are the Types of Lab Bottles?

Science lab bottles are available in both glass, plastic, and aluminum to handle the chemical composition of a wide range of fluids. For easy sample collection and storage of powders, granules, or solids, wide-mouth sample bottles may be the most convenient solution. Narrow neck bottles with a tamper-evident cap are more suited to storing potentially toxic substances, while dropper bottles make for smoother delivery of small amounts of liquid. Essential in any laboratory, sterile plastic bottles help with the collection of clean samples, and prevent cross-contamination during testing.

Different materials have different thermal tolerances. If your bottles require heat sterilization, select from specialized autoclavable bottles. Freezable bottles are also available for storing samples and may be necessary when working in cold field environments. For plastic bottles explicitly designed for laboratory use, review the Nalgene bottles and other leak-proof lab bottles.

More Lab Bottle Features

Select bottle color depending on your substance requirements. Amber bottles provide UV protection for light-sensitive products. Clear bottles help to identify bottle cleanliness, purity of the product, and make for easy identification when stocks are running low. When laboratory equipment requires rinsing with distilled or sterilized water, consider laboratory wash bottles that include a specially designed long hose. Some bottles feature printed or indented graduations for accurate measuring and dispensing. Look for leak-proof lab bottles to help maintain a clean lab environment, keep laboratory workers safe when handling dangerous substances, and save costs by reducing product waste.
