Packaging & Handling Information

Important information about our Packaging & Handling

We use packaging components which permit easy and safe handling, while protecting the integrity of the products. Liquid products, including NMR Solvents, are sealed in ampoules or are packaged in screw-cap bottles, when appropriate. Multi-dose septum vials are used for selected products. Solids are generally packaged in screw-cap bottles. Gases are routinely packaged in carbon-steel lecture bottles.
