Safety matters. And in the lab, safety matters a lot.

However, selecting the safest type of labware for an application can be overlooked.

With more than 100 years of commitment to innovation across our business, we have created a wide range of products designed to improve lab safety, protecting you, your colleagues, and the contents you are working with.

Our lab safety products are divided into several core categories, each with their own safety benefits. To make key safety attributes easy to identify we have also introduced four safety badges.

Our Built Stronger badge is assigned to products with greater levels of robustness and durability. Our Safer Handling badge is assigned to products that are easier to handle and use during day to day lab work. Our Spill Protection badge is assigned to products that reduce the risk of accidental spills or leaks. And our UV Protection badge is assigned to products that protect contents from UV light damage.

PYREX®
13224_Pyrex_Image_and_Text

About Pyrex®

Originally developed in 1908 for use on the American railroads, PYREX® borosilicate glass was designed to overcome a problem with train lanterns requiring a glass that could handle changes in temperature. The heat of the lantern flame conspired with the cold air of winter to shatter traditional glass lanterns.

Quickly realising that the superior thermal and chemical resistance properties of PYREX® borosilicate glass made it the ideal material for use in laboratory glassware, Corning Inc. registered the PYREX® brand name and went on to produce the first PYREX® laboratory glass items - beakers and flasks - in 1915.

DWK Life Sciences continues to produce PYREX® laboratory glassware under licence from Corning Inc., using traditional glassblowing techniques and the latest glass production technology.

Thanks to its revolutionary thermal properties and chemical resistance, PYREX® continues to be a trusted tool of scientists around the globe.


Quickfit®
13224_Quikfit_Image_and_Text

About Quickfit®

First developed in 1934, Quickfit® ground glass joints were designed as an alternative for scientists using rubber bungs, and glass and rubber tubing to connect pieces of glassware.

Today, Quickfit® jointed glassware is manufactured at DWK Life Sciences’ production facility in Stoke-on-Trent.

Quickfit® glass items are manufactured exclusively from PYREX® borosilicate glass which has a low coefficient of expansion that makes it ideal for use over a wide temperature range. PYREX® is also highly resistant to chemical attack making it suitable for use with most acids, alkalis and organic solvents.

Quickfit® products surpass the requirements of ISO 383 and DIN 12242. A two stage grinding process ensures the formation of a precision 1:10 taper and super-fine surface finish.  This results in joints with an exceptionally good seal and a greatly reduced risk of joint seizure.

Unlike other joints, Quickfit® sockets feature a rounded rim profile. This round design gives extra strength to the joint and is less prone to chipping than a square rim profile.

MBL®
13224_MBL_Image_and_Text
