Named after the chemist Emil Erlenmeyer, Erlenmeyer flasks are laboratory beakers with a decreasing neck radius. In contrast to Griffin beakers the danger of spilling liquids, e.g. when adding, stirring and mixing liquids, is reduced by the slim neck. VITLAB® Erlenmeyer flasks made of plastic are well suited for storage and cultivation of cell cultures. Additionally, they are far safer than glass flasks for use in incubator shakers due to the break resistance of plastic.
