Can I Store / Handle My Lipid With Containers / Tools Made Of Plastic?

Lipids stored in water or buffered solutions are compatible with plastics, but organic solutions of lipids should never come in contact with polymer or plastic (polystyrene, polyethylene, polypropylene, etc.) as this will leach impurities although Teflon may be used. Extracted materials may affect the performance of the lipids.
