A great find: sterile plastic petri dishes, 100mm dia x 15mm deep, with a loose fitting lid. Great for growing cultures for your science fair experiments. Our each (20) dishes and lids in a sealed, sterile package.
Rejoice, we have finally found a source of reasonably priced
borosilicate lab glassware. This is the kind of glass in the trade
marked Pyrex(tm) and Kimax(tm) labware. The stuff you can put right over
the flame of the Bunsen burner, or directly onto the hot plate. This
stuff is imported from China, and is considered student grade, which is
good enough for anything but the most exotic applications. We have
beakers, test tubes, graduated cylinders and flasks. Compare the prices
below and you will see that they are around half the U.S. equivalent.
Call us for larger quantity prices.
Porcelain mortars and pestles. Great heavy duty mortars, with sides that
are easily 5/16" thick on the smaller ones, and up to 1/2" on the
larger. The mortars are glazed outside, but rough inside, the better to
grind, and have a pouring lip. The business ends of the pestles are
unglazed, while the shafts are glazed. Very functional, very good
looking!! So grind your own spices or lab concoctions as you prefer.
You get a mortar and pestle as a single order.
Blue plastic test tube rack, about 8" long x 2-1/2" wide x 3-1/4" tall OA. It has a plate with (6) holes for full test tubes, the end two being 1-1/16" / 27mm dia the others 3/4" / 19mm dia. In front of this are (6) pegs to hold clean inverted test tubes. It of course can be used to hold tools, drying pasta or other, non-lab objects.
Hard polypropylene beakers, milky white
with a fine pouring spout. No good for flames, but great for low-temp
lab applications. Also useful in the kitchen, the garage, or (the big
one especially) as a plant watering can.
The Graduate devotee knows the importance
of plastic. To fill the need we offer these fine cylinders of the hard
milky white polypropylene persuasion, to help you measure out your
chemicals. With a large bases for stability and spouts for pouring, they
are just like their glass cousins, except these are cheaper and not
heat-resistant (each is marked 20° C ?!). The graduation increments and
total volume are shown as increment/total in milliliters.
Made from pine and treated to be fluid resistant, this 2-tier test-tube rack is ready for the lab, particularly if your lab has a 19th century look, but it would also make a dandy spice rack if you pop for test tubes with stoppers. If you're more creative, consider a linear flower arrangement, pipes, brushes, markers, pens or anything else that fits. Stands 8-1/8" tall x 10" wide x 3-3/8" deep with (6) 2-3/4" x 3/8" dia drying rods, (6) 1" / 25mm dia test-tube ports, and (7) 3/4" / 19mm dia ports.
So we're pricing these borosilicate boiling flasks to move quickly. We've got (3) sizes, all with slightly flattened bottoms, each with a single, discreet, capacity mark in white. While the actual physical size can vary slightly, the volume remains the same. The 1000ml flask is 9-5/8" tall OA x 5-5/8" dia with a 1-5/16" ID mouth, and a lip. Takes a #7 rubber stopper. The 500ml flask is 6-7/8" tall OA x 4-1/8" dia with a 1-3/16" ID mouth, and a lip. Takes a #6-1/2 rubber stopper, but a #7 will work. The 250ml flask is 6-1/8" tall OA x 3-3/8" dia with a 1-1/32" ID mouth, and a lip. Takes a #5-1/2 rubber stopper, but a #6 will do the job.
To meet all of your little plastic test tube needs. They're 13mm x 100mm plastic test tubes (approx 1/2" dia x 3-15/16" long) and will hold 7ml and take #2 or #3 corks, (#2 is a better fit) which aren't included. The bulk price also means you can make endless little vases for keeping flowers fresh in corsages, construct futuristic light fixtures, transparent sculptures, strange centerpieces, whatever. Use your imagination.
