Sample Containers

Protecting samples from spillage, moisture, dust, and contaminants during collection and transport to the lab is an integral part of materials testing.


Using the right containers, lids and closures allows for easy handling and storage of samples collected, and helps preserve the integrity of the sample to be tested. Our Sample Containers are available in a variety of sizes, materials, and closure accessories.
