yes, they work.
we don't use them regularly, though, but in the student courses where not enough bunsen burners are available, we have them work with the camping equipment.

i hope we both mean the same thing. i'm thinking about (blue) propane/butane gas cartridges, that can be put into a "camping cooker".

We use them in our lab as well. Fairly common really. You can actually buy proper bunsen burners for "Camping Gaz" type bottles, to get a better flame control. VWR etc sell them. Increasingly, labs are switching to flameless sterilizers as well.
