PerkinElmer offers high quality glass and plastic vials. The best vial to choose is dependent on the type and volume of sample to be counted and the cocktail that will be used.

Glass vials are manufactured from low potassium glass tubing. The tube diameter and the wall thickness are very closely controlled. The uniform wall thickness contributes to excellent counting reproducibility.
