Our favourite consumable item

Do you order laboratory consumable items from us online or via our order form?  If you need just one blood tube or swab, or enough for a herd, we’ve got you covered.

Our featured consumable item in June is PARAFILM®. 

Parafilm is a versatile, moisture-resistant, flexible plastic for a wide variety of clinical and industrial applications. Parafilm film has been used with confidence for years in scientific research and medical settings.

We use it everyday in the laboratory for sealing tubes of liquid samples e.g. urine or hazardous material e.g. formalin samples, when sending to other laboratories, covering containers and tubes that don’t have lids. It is also great for sealing reagents as protects again moisture loss or for containers of dry reagents to prevent moisture entering during long term storage.

There are even a few videos online that demonstrate how to use it.  Find one here.

We sell it by the metre or by the box.  We know you’ll love it, but beware, a little goes a long way as it is extremely stretchy. Find Parafilm on our website here.
