You don't have to keep paint in these, but they're exactly like the little glass jars that tempera paints used to come in before everything came in plastic. Measure 2-1/2" tall x 2" dia in clear glass with white metal gasketed screw caps and hold (2) oz.
Eye dropper, tongue dropper, test tube dropper, petri dish dropper,
anywhere dropper. Use this 3" glass dropper, with a rubber squeeze
bulb to drop small amounts of liquid wherever you think they should go.
You will have to measure by counting drops, though, because there are
no markings on it. Also, it is called "3" because that is about how
long the glass tube is. Overall, it is 4" long.
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.
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.
In the lab or kitchen, these clear borosilicate glass mugs have a handle and lip, and gradations from 2-12 oz in 1-oz increments; 1/4 to 1-1/2 cups in 1/4-cup increments; and 50-350ml in 50ml increments in the case of the smaller one (or 2 oz increments up to 32 oz, 4 cups in 1/4-cup increments, and 900ml in 100ml increments on the larger one), all of which means you get to learn oz-to-cup-to-milliliter conversions just by drinking coffee and watching the mug.
It looks as though it should be used for administering laudanum! A 30mL, 1-1/4" sq x 3" tall clear glass bottle, it has thick molded sides and a heavy lip: very antique in appearance. It is stoppered with a red(!) rubber stopper which is the squeeze bulb for the glass dropper tube inside. A real eye catcher, but give it a good wash please. It clearly is not sterile.
These blue glass dropper bottles are the color of the cold cream bottles that everybody's mother used when everybody's mother used cold cream. Measure 3-1/8" tall x 1-15/16" dia and hold (1) oz. Plastic safety dropper cap is 2-3/8" tall and marked at 0.4 and 0.8ml.
