The 3M™ Flip-Top Dilution Bottle is a leak-resistant plastic cylinder with a flip-open lid that seals securely for safe shipping and handling.

The Phosphate Buffer is pH balanced at 7.2 ± 0.2 at 25°C and is an ideal diluent for food, beverage, and environmental samples. The solution is decontaminated through gamma irradiation for long shelf life. The handy flip-top style provides a fast, easy and reliable bottle for sample processing. Flip-open lids can be opened with one hand and the hinged lid stays open for easy sample additions. The 99 mL fill volume along with the easy-opening, leak resistant flip-open lid is ideal for collecting, adding, and safely shipping samples. The convenient hinged lid stays open for easy sample addition and the 45 mm bottle opening makes it easy to pipette into and out of the bottle. Each bottle is equipped with an integrity seal that guarantees bottle has not been previously opened. This product is made in the USA and is ISO 9001:2008 certified for quality assurance. It is intended for lab use only.

Phosphate Buffer is a water-based salt solution containing potassium phosphate and is effective for stabilizing the pH of water used for dilutions. It is isotonic and non-toxic to cells and, unlike plain distilled water, prevents cells rupturing or shriveling up due to osmosis. It is used in diluting test samples and is called for in diluting water, dairy products, and food for microbiological testing methods.
