Beakers

SORT BY:
Beakers are a common item found in labs because of their usefulness. Flat bottoms mean they sit fully on tables or burners. Open tops make it easy to add materials without spilling. There are different designs, sizes, and materials that affect use. Low form, or Griffin beakers are about 1.4 times as high as wide and tall form beakers are about twice as high as they are wide. Choosing the best lab glassware depends on what it will contain, temperatures it may face, and if it's for pouring or stirring. Staples® has a wide range of lab equipment and other scientific supplies to create a complete and fully functional laboratory.

Capacity for Precise Measurements
These items typically measure liquids in milliliters or liters. Smaller options hold between 5 and 800 milliliters, while larger sizes can hold between 1 and 4 liters. Many measuring beakers are graduated with printed lines for precise measurements. Some display both milliliters and liters for measuring small and large volumes. It's also possible to purchase non-graduated items. These might be used to hold powder or other dry materials that don’t need to be measured accurately.

Spouts for Easy Pouring
Lab beakers usually have a single spout on the top edge to make it easy to pour liquid material neatly and in a mess-free manner. This is especially important when working with hazardous materials. Tri-pour styles with three spouts allow easy pouring no matter what angle they are picked up at. Some options don’t have spouts, and these are best used for stirring and can be covered completely with a lid.

Material for Hot and Cold Use
The material affects proper use. Glass beakers are transparent so it's easy to view the contents, measure accurately, and see chemical reactions in progress. Pyrex options are made from borosilicate glass that can withstand high temperatures when placed on burners. Polypropylene or polystyrene options are lightweight and designed to be disposed of after use. They're also less likely to break if dropped. Stainless steel units are durable and long-lasting.They're also resistant to corrosion when users work with harsh chemicals and can withstand high temperatures without breaking.

How Do You Properly Dispose of Beakers?
When disposing of used or broken lab glassware, there are certain rules to follow. Broken pieces should be placed in glass disposal boxes and then sealed to protect cleaning services. Items that contain hazardous materials should be placed in a hazardous waste container. Follow EPA and state laws for lab waste disposal.

Is it Safe to Put a Beaker in the Microwave?
Pyrex options can be placed safely in the microwave to heat materials thanks to its excellent resistance to thermal shock. That means they can go from cold to hot temperatures quickly without shattering. Some even have handles to make them easy to take out of microwave ovens.

Which Beaker Material Dries Fastest?
It's important to use dry beakers for scientific experiments because water can affect measurements and contaminate procedures. Pyrex and glass options dry the fastest because water droplets adhere to the surface and spread out in a thin layer that evaporates quickly.
