Always the right choice for your laboratory
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 for laboratory glassware, Corning registered the Pyrex® brand name and went on to produce the first Pyrex® laboratory glass items – beakers and flasks in 1915.
SciLabware continues to produce Pyrex® laboratory glassware at our glass manufacturing facility located in Stoke-on-Trent, UK 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. Few products are made so well that the brand becomes a generic name for everything similar. Pyrex® is one of these.
Precision joints. Outstanding performance
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 SciLabware’s production facility in Stoke-on-Trent, along with products from other SciLabware brands, such as Pyrex®, MBL®, SVL® and Wheaton®.
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 & 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.
Volumetric Accuracy at an Affordable Price
Introduced in 1949, the MBL® brand is comprised of around 300 mainly volumetric products. Now a well-established brand of SciLabware, MBL® features products made from bith borosilicate and soda-lime glass.
All SciLabware volumetric products are tested and calibrated in an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory located at SciLabware’s glass manufacturing facility in Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom. In addition to complying with the relevant ISO or national standard, the ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation offers our customers increased assurance of the precision and accuracy of our volumetric glassware.
The MBL® range includes measuring and mixing cylinders, volumetric flasks, burettes and pipettes, all manufactured, calibrated and tested to the highest accuracy standards.
MBL® has acquired an international reputation for its quality, accuracy and performance - a reputation that continues to this day.
