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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
You pick small, medium or large borosilicate reagent bottles, all with ground glass stopper. Small is 60ml, 3-5/8" tall x 1-5/8" dia with a 7/8" long neck and a 1/2" ID mouth. Medium is 125ml, 4-3/4" tall x 2-1/8" dia with a 1" tall neck and an 11/16" ID mouth. Large is 250ml, 5-3/8" tall x 2-3/4" dia with a 1" long neck and a nearly 3/4" ID mouth. Made in India.
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.
You pick. The unfinished pine rack stands 9-1/2" wide x 7-3/4" high with (7) 3/4" ID ports on the top, (6) 1" ID ports on the bottom, (6) 2-1/4" drying rods on the back. The fluid-resistent, treated 2-tier rack stands 10" wide x 8-1/8" tall with the same complement of ports and rods, except that the drying rods are 2-3/4". If you don't do lab work, think spice rack or post-modern flower arrangements (get tubes with stoppers right here), or a pen/marker caddy.
