What is the difference between reagent grade and laboratory (lab) grade chemicals?

Reagent grade chemicals are selected and best suited for general laboratory experiments. Chemical purity conforms or exceeds quality specifications established by the American Chemical Society.

Laboratory grade chemicals typically meet a minimum purity standard and are usually acceptable for experiments and demonstrations which do not require qualitative results.

Regardless of the chemical's quality, Flinn Scientific inspects each and every chemical it packages for freshness and quality.

Flinn chemicals are the best!
