Frequently Asked Questions

A specialty bottle is a container designed for a specific purpose or with unique properties to carry out its intended application. DWK Life Sciences offers a wide selection of high-grade specialty bottles in different shapes and sizes. Specialty bottles can be used for various applications, including storing chemical reagents, preparing dilution solutions, and dispensing liquids. We also supply WHEATON® spray bottles made from white LDPE.

The primary differences between a Babcock bottle and a Paley bottle are their design and function. Both these specialty bottles have a body that functions as a reaction chamber, and a long, graduated neck used to measure samples. However, the Babcock bottle has a narrow, elongated shape compared to the Paley bottle. The purpose of a Babcock bottle is to measure the percentage of fat content in liquid samples such as milk or cream. A Paley bottle is more suitable for measuring large, viscous liquid and solid samples, including cheese and meat.
