Glass vials have a diverse and numerous applications in various fields and sectors of industries. Some of the industries and sectors in which the glass vials are widely used include in chemistry, biology, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and chromatography just to mention a few. As indicated, these sectors and industries are quite sensitive and, therefore, products used must be of very high quality and must conform to set standards and specifications. Which means that the materials and processes of making vials must be of exceptional quality and standards.
The glass vials must be durable, reliable and non reactive to various chemical and changes in thermal conditions. They must be think enough to guarantee safety of the users too.
All these qualities go a long way in ensuring that the various functions and applications the vials are put into are carried out safely and that the experiments or expected results are not jeopardized by the equipment used (vials). Of course this also goes hand in hand in reducing associated costs of replacing and buying of the vials.
That said, let’s explore the diverse applications which glass vials are usually used in.
- they are used to store and keep chemicals both liquids, powders and capsules safe. Since they are made of glass, the contents can be kept very safe and dependent on the glass used, either clear or tinted, help protect the contents against light and or the sun.
- cosmetology has also varied use for the glass vials. The vials can be used to store and keep fragrances and perfumes. Given that glass vials are manufactured in various shapes, sizes, and colors with different types of closures, they can be perfect in storing perfumes and even having the perfumes sold in them.
- storing and keeping of organisms. Vials help in storing and keeping organisms safely for either scientific research or studies. Clear glass vials ensure that it’s possible to observe the organism whilst keeping them alive by reducing chances of crashing the organisms’ skeletons while transporting them.
- glass vials are also used for other secondary purposes like keeping and carrying flowers (vases), keeping bath salts, liquid soaps and detergents, as spray bottles, for making crafts and other display arts among many other uses.
