MILLVILLE, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KIMBLE® Class A Heavy Duty Wide-Mouth Volumetric Flasks meet industry accredited standards for accuracy allowing users to prepare calibration standards, dilutions and other laboratory solutions with full confidence. The flasks are calibrated to Class A specifications according to the ASTM E288 – 10(2017) Standard Specification for Laboratory Glass Volumetric Flasks, the published industry standard for which ASTM International worked with DWK Life Sciences. The tolerance margins for KIMBLE® 5 mL to 50 mL flasks are ±0.08 mL. KIMBLE® Certified Class A flasks glassware is marked with serial numbers, either individually or for each batch, and furnished with a Certificate of Calibration or Certificate of Accuracy for laboratories that routinely track and replace glassware, or that require a higher level of traceability. KIMBLE® Class A volumetric flasks are made from 33 expansion low extractable borosilicate glass conforming to USP Type 1 requirements. Marked with easy to read markings, each flask is marked with a calibration line, overall capacity, usage temperature (20˚C) and whether it has been calibrated to contain (TC) or to deliver (TD). KIMBLE® Volumetric Flasks are part of an extensive volumetric glassware portfolio by DWK Life Sciences, the world’s largest manufacturer of precision laboratory glassware, and provide everything needed for scientists and technicians to prepare critical reagents.
“We developed heavy duty wide-mouth volumetric flasks to meet the need for a larger opening in high precision glass labware, and then we joined with ASTM to modify the standard for the new quality criteria,” said Rick Schwartz, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales at DWK Life Sciences. “As the market leader for volumetric laboratory glassware, we have worked with ASTM International to define measurement standards for nearly a century. It is all part of supporting your scientific journey. When it comes to laboratory flasks, burets, pipettes and cylinders for volumetric analysis, we are the standard,” he added.
All DWK Life Sciences precision glassware is manufactured in facilities compliant with ISO 9001:2008/15 guidelines. For more information, contact your DWK Life Sciences representative, or visit the webpage at https://www.dwk.com/volumetrics.
