Polycarbonate by Sabic
Lexan Polycarbonate resin is an amorphous engineering thermoplastic, characterized by outstanding mechanical, optical,
electrical and thermal properties. The Lexan resins utilized by WHEATON environmentally confirm to flame retardant
standards, are scratch resistance, with a toughness and heat resistance that ensures biocompatible and optical quality.
WHEATON products made with the Lexan polycarbonate resin are compliant with stringent FDA and USP requirements.
Based on these properties and their inert nature, the media bottles and shaker flasks are ideal packaging vessels. All
products are manufactured in a Class 10K clean room.
The polycarbonate products are supplied gamma irradiated sterilized (SAL >10
). All products are packaged and produced
in a clean room controlled environment and do not need to be rinsed prior to first use. Consequently, all WHEATON Lexan
polycarbonate (PC) containers are a safer alternative to glass. WHEATON polycarbonate Erlenmeyer flasks can withstand
repeated autoclaving and are optimal for all microbial culture.
