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 remind you that science is part of your every day. The smaller one has 50-350ml graduations in 50ml increments and the larger one goes up to 900ml in 100ml increments, both with more room before you have to worry about spilling. Remember to ask for 236.5ml of coffee the next time you visit your favorite diner.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This blue plastic test-tube rack measures approx 8" long x 2-1/2" wide x 3-1/4" tall with (6) holes for full tubes, the end ones at 1-1/16" / 27mm dia and the others at 3/4" / 19mm. In front of these are (6) pegs for clean inverted tubes.
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.
