Introducing new tools for your laboratory.

29 Nov 2023

Glas-Col is a leading manufacturer of laboratory and industrial equipment who produce high-quality heating mantles, laboratory shakers and mixers, air-filtration systems and a wide variety of laboratory products such as glove bags.

Consider using a glove bag instead!

Glove bags are flexible, inflatable chambers with integrated gloves that allow work in an isolated and controlled environment. Depending on the model ordered, the equipment sleeve is sealed with either a zip type closure or a two-piece clip. Cotton gloves and a nylon gas port sleeve are also included for added convenience. Glas-Col glove bags are made from high clarity polyethylene for added strength and visibility.


Glove bags are used like a rigid glove box but with greater flexibility. It is made of polyethylene, with integrated gloves. Equipment is placed in through the sleeve ports and the bag is then inflated to work on the inserted items.


These glove bags are economical enough to be used once and discarded when contaminated, however durable enough to be used over and over if desired.


Ideal for keeping sensitive materials from contact with air or moisture. Use it whenever an inert atmosphere is required for particular reactions or in handling reagents.

These glove bags can be used alongside rigid glove boxes, as they can be purged faster with less gas, and can be easily adapted to fit your specific requirements.

Vortexer - Mixer and Shaker
Features and Benefits


Glas-Col mixers are an affordable laboratory vortexer which can be used in conjunction with various types of tubes. Applications include solution phase synthesis, for when a good mixture of heterogeneous solutions is needed. In Solid Phase chemistry the pulsation feature is extremely useful for the full reaction of resins, and other materials.


The flexibility of different sized tubes.

The cartridge design of Glas-Col’s Multi-Pulse Vortexer allows the user to switch the size of tubes to be mixed simply by changing the cartridge size, thus eliminating the need for extra racks. Cartridges are available for test tube and centrifuge tubes, either capped or uncapped. Each cartridge is constructed of chemical resistant foam and ABS plastic. An optional blank cartridge allows the flexibility to use standard tube racks. The unit easily adjusts for different height tubes and allows them to remain visible during mixing. Additional sample can be added to uncapped tubes without stopping the mixing action.


  • Variable speed for precise mixing.
  • Pulsing feature interrupts vortexing to join upper and lower strata for more thorough mixing of samples.
  • DC motor with filtered control for smoother operation and longer motor life.
  • Interchangeable cartridge system allows units to be adapted to different vessels easily.
  • Vortexers come in different sized models to suit most applications in the laboratory.

Is your glassware ISO 17025 certified?

18 Oct 2023

Rowe Scientific Pty Ltd can supply you with DAkkS calibrated / NATA accepted laboratory glassware.

BRAND has a calibration laboratory accredited by DAkkS (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH) in accordance with ISO 17025. Each item of glassware is accompanied by an item specific calibration certificate which is internationally recognised.

Computer controlled systems ensure maximum precision in a fully automated production line. ‘Statistical Process Control’ guarantees the smallest deviation from nominal capacity (Accuracy) and narrow scatter of individual values (Coefficient of Variation).

BRAND uses flexible screen stencils for all graduated instruments to apply the calibration marks accurately so that precision is maintained for all intermediate volumes. High quality inks combined with a careful annealing process provides durable graduations. BRAND can also supply ISO 17025 certifed pipettes (Transferpette® S) and Liquid dispensers (Dispensette® S).

No plastic packaging material is used in packaging your calibrated glassware. This means less internal packaging is required whilst using 100% recyclable material. Know that your glassware is safe while minimising waste.

Rowe Scientific Pty Ltd is now the official distributors of Starna® Cuvettes, Optical and Spectrophotometer Cells.

09 Aug 2023

Rowe Scientific Pty Ltd is now the official distributor for Starna® Scientific Australia wide. We offer a wide variety of Starna® products which are manufactured in the Starna® Scientific factory founded in 1964, whose lineage of optical expertise is traceable to the early part of the last century.

During the 1950s, the founding members of the company developed and perfected the technique of fully fusing optically polished component parts by heat alone, without distortion. 

Starna® Scientific is the manufacturing division of the international group of Starna® companies, who have a recognised world-wide reputation for quality, service, innovation and co-operation in the production and supply of spectrophotometer cells, optical components and certified reference materials.

All manufacturing processes are carried out in an ISO 9001 certified production facility. Starna® is accredited to ISO 17034 as a Reference Material Producer, and the scope of the Calibration Laboratory’s ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation is the widest in the industry. Starna® Certified Reference Materials are calibrated with full traceability to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) primary standards in the USA, or to other National Metrological Laboratories (NMLs), where applicable.

A unique blend of in-house optical production skills includes: cutting, slicing, grinding, polishing, drilling, ultrasonic drilling, glassblowing and heat fusion. A range of metallic, multi-layer and anti-reflection coating processes are also employed. Stringent cleaning techniques and mandatory inspection procedures ensure that all optical products leave the factory in a pristine contamination-free condition, carrying an unconditional guarantee against defects.
