Information on glass tubes with corks

The glass tube with corks is often used by laboratories, but the test tube with cork stopper or others is also used to contain some spices like vanilla pods so they can retain all their flavor and aroma. Some glass tubes with corks are also pure decorative objects to display sand, sweets or cosmetics.

Who is the test tube with corks for?

Test tubes with corks are primarily aimed at analytical laboratories, which use them as test tubes for certain solutions or for blood sampling. The wider glass tubes with a cork stopper can be used for decoration, for certain food products (for example packaging of vanilla pods) or to display sweets such as dragees (sugar almonds) for a wedding or baptism.

The benefits of a test tube with corks

A glass tube with a cork stopper offers many benefits. It does not denature the product that is enclosed in its interior while allowing to see it. A glass tube with a cork stopper is also ideal for storing small quantities, and some can even be heated. If spices are stored in these glass tubes, all their scents and flavors remain intact for a very long time.
