SPI Supplies Brand Coplin Staining Jar Polypropylene, High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Ten Slide Cap
The SPI Supplies® Coplin Staining Jar is molded from a very tough and break resistant polypropylene. The domed top with a shallow threaded screw cap and a base with inside grooves holds up to 10 standard 1 x 3" (25 x 75 cm) slides back to back or five single slides upright. The body of the jar is a tapered with internal groves. This particular grade of polypropylene is resistant to attack by all of the typical staining agents but will eventually, with some stains, exhibit some discoloration. With the use of osmium tetroxide, this discoloration will occur sooner rather than later and might even lead to the need to replace the staining jar altogether.
2-5/16" (5.9 cm) Diameter x 4 1/2" (11.4 cm) High
We never like to say "never" but this polypropylene staining jar is about as indestructible as one can get and should last a very long time. If you should drop your jar purchased from SPI Supplies and if it does break, SPI will replace it without charge with your next order. Think of it as a "life time" guarantee from SPI Supplies!
