SPECIMEN & SAMPLE CONTAINERS
DISPOSABLE SPECIMEN CONTAINERS
These non-breakable, sturdy enough for reuse specimen cups are available in translucent or white opaque and come with a matching lid. The 4 ounce container is made of hdpe, and all the other sizes are made of a lightweight copolymer called PPCO. This is a blend of polyethylene and polypropylene which offers higher temperature and impact resistance. All of these containers come with tight-fitting LLDPE lids. They are all designed to simplify and standardize the handling and storage of specimens. They are inert and cannot be attacked by formaldehyde or weak acids or bases and will resist freezing or boiling. They have long shelf lives and are easily disposable. The HDPE is a 2 recycling code and the PPCO is a 5 code.
POLYSTYRENE RIGID SAMPLE CONTAINERS
These rigid-wall polystyrene containers come with tight fitting polyethylene snap-on caps. They are excellent for storing dry materials, powders, tablets, etc. They may be used with automatic cell counters for collection of sample, and where venous samples are used, for dilution purposes. Maximum temperature polystyrene is 70°C. Approximately 16 drams per ounce.
HINGED POLYETHYLENE SAMPLE CONTAINERS
These hinged lid containers are ideal for just about any type of storage. They feature a secure snap closure with hinged lid that eliminates lost caps. Containers offer an air and moisture resistance to contents. Manufactured from flexible FDA approved polyethylene resin.
