Product Details

Erlenmeyer flasks have heavy-duty rims. Graduated scale gives approximate volume.

In the realm of laboratory glassware, there exists an iconic vessel that has stood the test of time, enduring as a symbol of scientific exploration and experimentation. The Erlenmeyer flask, named after its inventor Emil Erlenmeyer, has been a staple in laboratories worldwide for over a century. Its distinctive conical shape, broad base, and narrow neck have not only made it a recognizable symbol of scientific inquiry but also endowed it with a wide range of applications across various scientific disciplines. Erlenmeyer flasks are a fundamental tool in school science laboratories. Their simple yet effective design makes them an excellent choice for hands-on experiments in the science classroom. 

What is an erlenmeyer flask used for? 

In chemistry, the Erlenmeyer flask is indispensable for a wide range of purposes. It is commonly used for mixing, heating, and storing reagents, as well as conducting chemical reactions. Its conical shape promotes effective stirring, ensuring thorough mixing of solutions. Chemical laboratories use Erlenmeyer flasks for reactions ranging from simple mixing to more complex processes like titration, crystallization, and reflux. The flask's design simplifies the addition of reagents and the observation of reactions. 

Additionally, the narrow neck allows for the attachment of various laboratory accessories, such as stoppers and condensers.  

Biologists employ Erlenmeyer flasks for cell culture, bacterial growth, and fermentation processes. The flasks' flat bottoms and conical shapes are well-suited for maintaining a suitable surface area for cell growth while minimizing the risk of contamination. They are also useful for media preparation and sterilization. Biotechnology relies on Erlenmeyer flasks for the cultivation of microorganisms, cell culture, and the production of biopharmaceuticals. The scalability and ease of use make them ideal vessels for large-scale processes. 

Environmental scientists use Erlenmeyer flasks for sample collection and analysis. They are employed in tasks such as water quality testing, chemical analysis of soil and air samples, and the determination of pollutants in environmental matrices. 

The Erlenmeyer flask, conceived by Emil Erlenmeyer over a century ago, remains an enduring symbol of scientific exploration and a fundamental tool in laboratories worldwide. Its distinctive design, featuring a conical body, flat base, and narrow neck, has stood the test of time and adapted to the changing needs of scientists across a multitude of scientific disciplines. Whether used in chemistry, biology, pharmaceuticals, environmental science, education, or various other fields, the Erlenmeyer flask continues to be indispensable for its versatility, durability, and reliability. As science continues to advance, the Erlenmeyer flask, with its timeless design and enduring utility, remains an essential partner in the journey of discovery and innovation. 

Graduated Erlenmeyer Flasks 

To enhance the precision of measurements and reduce the need for additional glassware, graduated Erlenmeyer flasks were introduced. These flasks have volume markings etched onto the glass, allowing scientists to measure and mix reagents more accurately.
