Customer Issue: Have you been getting your reagents such as sodium hypochlorite and hydrogen peroxide in bottles with special srew caps featuring a valve to allow any gases that may form to escape and so as to stop the container from becoming pressurized? Have you been packing the bottles afterwards in a PE bag for added safety because the reagents could diffuse through the outlet of the srew caps?
EMD Millipore Solution: To avoid this problem and possible contamination, we offer you the SafetyCap. It is used for our chemical products that could build up excess pressure in bottles through chemical reaction. To prevent contamination we supply all of the aforementioned reagents in bottles fitted with our SafetyCap. The Goretex pad at the heart of the cap allows gas to escape but is totally impervious to liquids over a wide range of temperatures no matter what the position of the bottle, as proven by extensive storage trials and stress testing performed by the German Institute of Materials Research and Testing. The Goretex valve in the safety cap is there to protect the reagents, too, by not allowing gas or liquid into the bottle where it may contaminate the contents.
