Vials and Caps

Whether you are looking for glass or plastic vials, plain caps or septa caps, BASi has got you covered. And with our CHADs for Vials™ labeling system, we’ll also help you get their number!

We offer vials for use in our Microvolume Fraction Collector and for the “Large” Volume Fraction Collector (LVFC). See the appropriate sections below.
