- The DURAN Group is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of borosilicate glass

The DURAN Group is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of borosilicate glass, a special glass registered under the trade name DURAN®. With sites in Mainz, Wertheim and Pula in Croatia, the DURAN Group covers the complete value-added chain from the glass melting process right through to glass forming and further processing. Standard laboratory items such as DURAN® Erlenmeyer flasks, beakers and bottles are just as much a part of the comprehensive product range as complex solutions for the pharmaceutical and bioengineering industries. Over the last 75 years products manufactured from DURAN® Glass have become indispensable in laboratories around the world.

The specially shaped gripping zones on both sides of the bottle permit easier and safer handling. With the new glass thread, the opening or closing of the YOUTILITY bottle is significantly faster. The slimmer bottle shape allows a more optimal use of limited space in autoclaves and laboratory refrigerators. The bottles can be conveniently stacked horizontally on their sides. A pre-defined labelling area is compatible with the dedicated self-adhesive YOUTILITY bottle labels. The colourful GL 45 Bottle Tags offer an elegant solution to the marking of laboratory bottles. They can be easily and securely attached around the neck of the YOUTILITY bottle, even with the screw cap in place.

A range of sequentially sized bottles are available in the four popular volumes of 125, 250, 500 and 1000 ml. The glass bottles are moulded from the tried and tested DURAN® borosilicate 3.3, a pharmacopoeial Type 1 neutral glass. DURAN® glass offers a very good chemical resistance and high temperature resistance. Bottles are available in both clear and amber coloured glass. The amber colour meets the requirements of the USP < 660 > and Ph. Eur. for UV light protection. The entire YOUTILITY bottle range has an integrated Retrace Code to allow product traceability via a downloadable certificate of conformance.

DURAN® YOUTILITY was recently awarded with a silver IDEA® in the 2014 competition organised by the Industrial Designers Society of America) for the user-friendliness of the YOUTILITY Laboratory Bottle System. This is the 3rd product design award won by DURAN® YOUTILITY in addition to the Red Dot and iF awards.
