Just about everyone is familiar with test tubes, beakers, flasks & graduated cylinders. Long a staple of chemistry laboratory experiments, these heat resistant items are finding their way in the mainstream of daily use. Their utility for mixing, measuring, heating & storing liquids, is proving useful for presentation & display, promotion & packaging.
Why choose glass for packaging or storage? Glass is actually one of the only mainstream packaging materials that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has recognized as truly safe. Besides being safer, it also has environmental benefits.Glass is the most stable packaging material available. It is inert and impermeable with no risk of harmful chemicals getting into or reacting with your products of food products. Unlike plastic, there is no risk of potentially toxic chemical additives leaching out & into your food.Recycling has its costs and glass is a more sustainable alternative to plastic packaging and more environmentally friendly. Glass is dishwasher safe & can be reused over and over with little diminishing of quality. Glass tubes and beakers are a fantastic way to package & repackage your products.
Our scientific glassware is designed for use in the lab environment. Beakers, flasks & graduated cylinders have graduation markings for measuring. Test tubes are completely unmarked and like (except 13x100mm) our Erlenmeyer and Florence (boiling) flasks have thick tooled rims for safe stoppering.These traits make our lab glass even more popular as kitchen & barware with beakers especially popular as promotional giveaways for tradeshows & even frosh freebies.Here are just some of the ideas we've covered in our blogs over the years:
Glassware cannot be returned for any reason; this is for your safety and ours. It would be prohibitively expensive to test for bacteriological, chemical or radiological agents since there is no way to tell if glass has been contaminated just by looking at it. We would have to throw it away even if you claim to never have opened the package.
If you want to do more on your own, you can purchase a download and print yourself set of labels. If you want to do less you can purchase syringes (larger than what we used) already labeled, and even a stand for them. We just stood ours up in glass 1000ml beakers, which looked very cool. Each 1000 ml beaker should hold 12 - 13 1 oz syringes.
This display looks so good! The Nerds are small and colorful and look great in the test tubes. I ordered "BIOHAZARD!! Nerd-like side effects" flags from Bsquared Design. Just note if using the test tube stand, you'll only be able to put the tags on the outer tubes.
Wire Drying Rack saves glassware from chips and cracks. Drain and dry test tubes, beakers, flasks, and other labware. Place self-standing rack on a table or near a sink, or use hooks to hang rack on the wall.
Medical Laboratories are not only found in civilian hospitals, but are also greatly relied upon to service millions of military personnel and their families each year in hospitals run by the US Military. These bastions of efficiency have a lot to teach the civilian sector. The Editors of Medical Laboratory Observer recently saluted the David Grant USAF Medical Center Laboratory as the 2017 Lab of the Year. The David Grant USAF Medical Center (DGMC) shares its home in the San Francisco Bay area with Travis Air Force Base. It treats the full spectrum of military personnel from active staff to military family members. Even civilian staff members of the Department of Defense are treated here. Every year this lab conducts 1.2 million tests across a wide range of medical laboratory disciplines including: hematology, immunology, point of care testing and transfusion. Below are some of the efforts that have promoted their success as one of the largest medical laboratories of its kind.
By using four IT platforms: ALTA, CoPath, CHCS and Essentris; healthcare providers are also able to gain access to lab results. Outside providers that order lab tests for patients can receive results through a secure fax line. The upshot of this is an increased continuity of care from the DGMC to their companies.
The lab work of the future will continue to push the bounds of what can be learned through gathering and analyzing data and test results. For example, genetic testing and tumor & blood fluid samples were recently taken from both populations with, and without, one of most dangerous skin cancers. Researchers were able to find that when they used new forms of blood tests, they were able to reliably identify previously undetected strains of the disease. These results were also verified by scientists from the NYU Langone Medical Center. The research team tested patients with and without melanoma plasma samples and came to a similar conclusion.
Another great development is in the oncology department and its use of technology to create more meaningful and efficient patient visits for testing and cancer treatment. In cancer patients, the effects of chemotherapy often reduces blood cell counts. This means that patients are more prone to get infections, anemia and other problems. Research shows that low blood counts are one of the main causes of delayed treatment or reduced treatment dosage. In 20% of the cases, the patient is sent home before they undergo treatment because onsite blood tests showed that their blood counts were too low.
These beakers are opaque, rigid, nonporous, smooth surfaced and resist all chemicals except molten alkali metals and fluorine. They are an efficient substitute for platinum and can withstand 260°C continuously or 300°C for short periods. They have flat bases suitable for heating on controlled electric hot plates.
Test tubes are isostatically molded in pure PTFE and feature heavy wall construction. They are guaranteed to be chemically inert and crack-free. May be used at temperatures ranging from -196°C to +280°C (-321°F to +536°F). Three sizes available: 8, 17 and 50ml.
Our test tubes can be used with your own DIY experiments or with one of our Steve Spangler Science experiments featured within our comprehensive online science library. Use these test tubes for many of our experiments. Grow your own plants with Growing Plants in Test Tubes. Make a colorful jelly-crystal scene in a test tube with our Rainbow Test Tube activity. Experiment with Magic Sand for hours and hours of fun, hands-on activities.

Hurst Scientific is a family owned company specialising in the distribution of a variety of essential scientific equipment, accessories, liquids and instruments. We supply products for use in microbiology and chemistry laboratories, such as beakers and other common apparatus required for experimentation.
Beakers are routinely used in laboratories to stir, mix and heat liquids, chemicals and solutions for the purposes of testing. Beakers are cylindrical in shape with a flat bottom and a small spout for pouring.
At Hurst Scientific, we stock beakers with clear, printed graduations for more precise scientific measurements. Choose from a range of beakers to suit your application, including polypropylene beakers and glass beakers designed to withstand varying temperatures.
We supply beakers and other instruments including beaker and burette holders, bunsen burners, draining racks, flasks, funnels, measuring cylinders and scoops, stirring rods, spatulas, spoons and more.
Bulk Test Tubes are neatly packaged in heavy duty boxes of 250 and are shrink wrapped to keep them particle free. The boxes are compact and designed to fit into most test tube dispensers. Ideal for tissue culture and blood banks. Tubes feature well-rounded bottoms and smooth fire-polished rims. Made from chemically inert borosilicate glass to reduce pH changes and contaminants that are potentially leached from tubes made from soda lime glass. Produced in an ISO 9001:2008 certified factory.
A shaker is a piece of laboratory equipment used to mix, blend, or agitate substances in a tube or flask by shaking them. It is mainly used in the fields of chemistry and biology. A shaker contains an oscillating board that is used to place the flasks, beakers, or test tubes. Although the magnetic stirrer has lately come to replace the shaker, it is still the preferred choice of equipment when dealing with large volume substances or when simultaneous agitation is required.
A platform shaker has a table board that oscillates horizontally. The liquids to be stirred are held in beakers, jars, or Erlenmeyer flasks that are placed over the table or, sometimes, in test tubes or vials that are nested into holes in the plate. Platform shakers can also be combined with other systems like rotating mixers for small systems and have been designed to be manufactured in laboratories themselves with open source scientific equipment. 59ce067264
