These wide base, narrow top, drosophila culture bottles allow an easy and efficient racking, filling and plugging.
Made of PE (Polyethylene) the bottles are transparent to enable the researcher to clearly see the inside of the bottle.
These bottles are not autoclavable. Upon request we can produce PP (Polypropylene) bottles that are even more transparent and are autoclavable.

What are Drosophila Bottles, and what are they used for?
rosophila Bottles produced by Gil Pack are specialized containers designed for use in Drosophila research and studies. They are commonly used by scientists and researchers in the field of genetics to culture and study fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) for various biological experiments.
What materials are used to manufacture Drosophila Bottles?
Gil Pack manufactures Drosophila Bottles from PolyEthylene (PE) which is a relatively softer material and has a milky appearance. The other option we offer is Drosophila bottles made of PolyPropylene (PP). PP is clearer than the PE and is more rigid and less flexible.
Can these bottles accommodate food media for Drosophila culture?
Yes, Drosophila Bottles are designed to accommodate food media or nutrient-rich agar to support the growth and development of fruit flies during research studies.
Do the Drosophila Bottles come with proper ventilation features?
Usually Drosophila research bottles are used with cotton (cellulose acetate) plugs, that enable breathing and ventilation of the flies inside the bottle.
Can I order Drosophila Bottles in different sizes or capacities?
While the Drosophila Bottles listed are 180ml (6oz), we offer various size options to cater to different research needs, ensuring you find the right container for your specific Drosophila culture requirements.
