This glass has the highest resistance to chemical attack of any known commercially available glass. This glass is ideal for long- and short-term sample storage, lyophilization and vaccine/injectable drug containers. These bottles also have a high resistance to thermal and mechanical shock. These bottles are available with or without graduations. 


Other Glass Bottles

WHEATON offers a comprehensive line of round and square Narrow Mouth Bottles for solvent, chemical or sample storage. These bottles are made from clear or amber, Type III soda-line glass. Clear and amber bottles are available with white polypropylene screw caps with a variety of cap liners.

WHEATON offers a comprehensive line of round and square Wide Mouth Bottles that facilitate easy removal of contents. The wide mouth design is great for large solid samples, soil sampling and environmental applications. These bottles are made from clear or amber, Type III soda-line glass. Clear and amber bottles are available with white polypropylene screw caps with a variety of cap liners.

Create a safe work environment with WHEATON™ Safety Coated Bottles. If a bottle is accidentally broken, the PVC based plastisol coating on the bottle retains the contents long enough for proper disposal. The bottle's non-slip coating allows for greater ease and stability when handling wet or dry in lab or field applications.


Plastic Bottles


Leak-Resistant Bottles

WHEATON Leak-Resistant Bottles are very popular for use in laboratories across the world. There are three types of resins offered: low-density polyethylene, high-density polyethylene and propylene.

HDPE and LDPE Containers

WHEATON HDPE and LDPE Containers are available in variety of shapes and sizes to meet your specific needs. High-density polyethylene is flexible but more rigid than LDPE. These containers are milky white in color, semi-translucent depending on density. These containers have good impact strength and stress crack resistance, good chemical resistance and good vapor barrier — but poor gas barrier. 

HDPE containers can be sterilized with ethylene oxide or gamma radiation. LDPE containers are flexible and have a milky color, translucent with high-impact strength. The material is excellent for mild and strong buffers and has good chemical resistance. Containers can be sterilized with ethylene oxide or gamma radiation. They have good stress crack and impact resistance.

  • Unrivaled cap seal exceeds DOT and IATA regulations, ensuring ultimate protection of samples during transportation and demanding freeze-thaw handling
  • Optional 2D Data Matrix Bar Code Insert provides unique identifier for traceability
  • Bottom format allows unrestricted view of 2D bar code for convenient automated scanning
  • Made from low binding, cryogenic grade virgin polypropylene
  • Lot certified RNase/DNase and endotoxin free, providing assurance of product integrity
  • Loctagon™ Vial Skirt provides stability in freestanding position and locks into CryoELITE Benchmate Rack (Cat. No. 03-341-18S) in order to provide easy open and close with one hand
Cell Culture

WHEATON™ is committed to providing high-quality, innovative cell culture products to research laboratories worldwide. From sample preparation to storage and adherent cell culture to suspension culture, WHEATON understands the life sciences and their importance to all of us. WHEATON has the right products to make your job easier and to make your results more successful. WHEATON has both advanced, new products like the CELLine™ Bioreactor Flasks and the newly redesigned R2P 2.0, as well as tried and true WHEATON Cell Culture™ products including tissue grinders and staining ware.


CELLine™ Bioreactor Flasks

In an effort to push science forward, WHEATON has recently introduced a new line of membrane driven flasks for high-density cell culture. The flasks are designed to enhance small scale bio-production for antibody and protein generation. Conventional in vivo or in vitro cell culture methods can be laborious, may have low cell density and require significant purification. CELLine™ flasks address these three areas of limitation observed in static tissue culture flasks. CELLine Flasks are ideal for use with hybridoma, insect, CHO, NSO, HEK and BHK cell lines.
