Product News: Thermo Fisher Scientific Creates New iPhone App for Selecting Bottles and Carboys

11 Jan 2012

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has created a free iPhone and Android app for the selection of Thermo Scientific Nalgene bottles, carboys and vials. Based on their specific laboratory needs, users simply insert a Nalgene® catalog number or search terms and the intuitive app recommends the most appropriate container from the inventory of almost 700 choices. Results are based on the specific properties for chemical resistance, autoclavability, inertness, temperature tolerance and a host of other parameters and certifications for the customers’ individual lab activity.

To further refine product recommendations, users can change search criteria and view technical drawings and dimensional outputs to assess product suitability before purchase. Results can be saved for further study or sent to an email address.

Each Nalgene bottle comes with a leak-proof guarantee to protect valuable liquids. Sizes range from 4 mL to 50 L and small quantity to bulk packs, so scale-up can occur without the need to revalidate materials as projects progress from research into production. Nalgene bottles and containers are available in a wide range of certified materials for laboratory, food and pharmaceutical use.
