Avanti Polar Lipids, Inc. is committed to supplying the research and pharmaceutical community with the highest quality polar lipids available. Our concern extends to the storage of these materials after you receive your shipment. Avanti offers a wide assortment of shipping/storage containers and closure systems for your convenience in sample handling.
Contact a product specialist if you have a specific shipping/storage requirement.
Hermetically sealed borosilicate glass ampules
Provide a secure environment for lipids sensitive to oxidation. The ampules are shipped in cardboard liners for protection and storage convenience. Ampules are pre-scored for easier opening. Once the seal is broken, sample may be transferred to a Screw Cap Storage Vial (see below).
Narrow-mouth borosilicate glass bottles
Convenient for shipping and storage of larger volumes of lipids. The closure system is composed of a closed-top screw cap with a teflon liner fused to a silicone rubber backing. The liner is sonically welded to the cap, therefore no glue can come in contact with the organic solution.
Wide-mouth borosilicate glass bottles
Convenient for shipping and storage of dry powder lipids. Larger openings provide easier access to lipid samples. The closure system is composed of a closed-top screw cap with a teflon liner.
The Screw Cap Storage Vial
Designed as a storage option for materials shipped in glass ampules or bottles. The closure system contains an open-top screw cap with a teflon liner fused to a silicone rubber septum.
