MILLVILLE, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–DWK Life Sciences, the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of precision labware, introduces the KIMBLE® GLS 80® Media Bottle and Multiport Cap System. Designed to help scientists accommodate a range of sample sizes from 250 mL to 20 L, the KIMBLE® GLS 80® bottle and cap system can be used for biological and chemical reactions, plant cell culture, photobiological studies, and sample collection and storage. The wide neck simplifies transfer of samples in any form, including powders, pastes, granules and liquids. Spoons, spatulas, tweezers, and large funnels are easily manipulated through the opening. Together with the Multiport Cap, the GLS 80® bottle handles applications in the energy, materials science, pharmaceutical and biotechnology fields of research (see the Bioreactor Bulletin).
“We’ve supplied our GLS 80® Bottle and Multiport Cap System to research laboratories testing everything from algae to food,” says Rick Schwartz, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at DWK Life Sciences.
The KIMBLE® GLS 80® bottle is manufactured from 33 expansion low extractable borosilicate glass in conformance to the USP Type I standard for neutral glass. Resistant to acids, corrosive chemicals and thermal shock, the bottles withstand temperatures as high as 500˚C making them suitable for autoclaving. The GLS 80® bottle is available in clear glass, or with an amber coated exterior for light sensitive materials, or with KimCote® safety coating for protection in the event of damage. Bottles are fitted with a matching pouring ring for drip-free pouring. Easy-to-read volume graduations and white marking patch allow for clear identification of bottle contents.
The four-port Multiport Cap system provides a choice of 5 port inserts designed to fit different size tubing. Constructed of polypropylene (PP) and polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE), the cap components are autoclavable.
