Still image from Parafilm: What Is This Thing?!

Host Alex Dainis highlights the uses and history of parafilm. It is commonly used in health care, pharmaceutical, and research laboratories for covering or sealing vessels such as flasks, cuvettes, test tubes, beakers, Petri dishes, and more. Scientists and researchers use it in the lab since it is ductile, malleable, nontoxic, and self-sealing.
