CHICAGO, Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Qorpak, a division of Berlin Packaging and a longstanding trusted provider of packaging and laboratory supplies, today announced the immediate availability of its new 250cc straight-sided, wide mouth borosilicate glass jar. The high-performance jar, a U.S. exclusive to Qorpak, gives customers in fields ranging from chemical manufacturing and laboratory research to natural history and medical museums a thermal- and chemical-stable workhorse for storage of specimens and liquid chemicals. Thanks to its 70mm wide mouth opening and lack of slanted shoulders, the glass jar offers easy viewing of contents as well as convenient access and storage. Qorpak's product research indicated a strong demand for the shape and material of the new jar, manufactured from Type 1 borosilicate glass. Type 1 borosilicate is more resistant to temperature changes than regular glass and provides a greater assurance of the content's integrity. The material is commonly used where clarity and chemical durability, as well as thermal stability, are required. "Our new 250cc borosilicate glass jar will be a game changer for customers seeking the quality of borosilicate with the functionality of a standard packaging bottle, at an affordable cost," said Karen Brooks, Qorpak vice president. "Anyone familiar with the recommendations in 'Fluid Preservation: A Comprehensive Reference' by John Simmons knows how important shelf-stable glass jars are to specimen preservation. This jar will satisfy those kinds of long-term storage needs exactly." Qorpak's new multi-purpose borosilicate glass jar is available in a 12-count case, and can be purchased either alone or paired with green thermoset F217 and PTFE-lined caps. Other cap and liner materials are available. The jars can be distinguished from regular jars by the Qorpak borosilicate logo on the bottom.
