Application Note: Are the extractables from Nalgene Rapid-Flow receiver bottles lower when compared to similar devices?
2 September 2021

Extractables are possible contaminants from plastic products that most commonly originate from the synthesis of the polymer, resin components, manufacturing process, or use of additives, which are necessary for the performance of the product. 

In this application note, Thermo Fisher Scientific demonstrates that in three different extractable analyses, the Thermo Scientific ™ Nalgene ™ Rapid-Flow™ receiver bottles were lower in extractable content compared to three equivalent devices from different manufacturers.
