Chemical resistance, heat tolerance (not to be used on hot plates), and spout design. Beakers are made only from prime quality laboratory grade plastic materials for dependably lower levels of potential extractables and leachable (E&L), so that you can use them for everyday lab use without interfering along with your work.
