    Laboratory Incubator
    Laboratory Incubator
    Laboratory equipment refers to various tools and equipment used by scientists working in a laboratory. This equipment has a place in every laboratory for experiments or to take measurements or even to gather data. Here, we are not referring to the more sophisticated or larger equipment which are called scientific instrument.

    High Temperature Furnace
    Compound Microscope

    A compound microscope is an essential requirement in any laboratory as it uses two lenses to make things look larger.
    Magnifying Glass or Hand lens or Simple Microscope

    Unlike the compound microscope, the magnifying glass or hand lens uses one lens to make things look larger. It can be easily carried around in the laboratory and is used for simple observations of a sample.
    Hot Plate

    A laboratory needs all kinds of equipment for various combinations and a hot plate is an electric device used for heating things.
    Petri Dish

    A Petri dish is required to hold various specimens and also needed to observation of these specimens and to grow culture.
    Cover Slip

    A cover slip is needed to cover specimens on a microscope slide.
    Glass Slide

    A glass slide is needed to keep the specimens for observing under the microscopes.
    Graduated Cylinders (Glass or Plastic)

    A graduated cylinder is a very accurate tool used to measure liquid in volume. It is graduated in ml. This is used for measuring liquids in perfect accuracy.

    Digital Centrifuge Machine
    Beaker (Glass or Plastic)

    The glass beakers are used to stir and heat the liquids of various quantities. These come in various sizes and shapes according to the need of the liquid to be measured. They are transparent to give a clear view and colour of the liquid that is being put in them.

    Beaker Tongs
    Tongs are used for holding the hot beakers. Once the beaker has been heated it cannot be held with bare hands and therefore these tongs are required to hold it safely and without tampering the content of the liquid.  

    Florence Flask and Erlenmeyer Flask

An Erlenmeyer flask is also used for storing and heating liquid but has a different shape. It also has a round bottom but gradually narrows in shape towards the top.

    Different types of liquids with different chemical properties need different shapes of flask for storage and heating.

    • A laboratory works on giving accurate results and it is with the help of these equipment that it can produce results that are very accurate.
    • Laboratory equipment should meet the specific requirement of the purpose it is used for hence the shape and size of the equipment that is being purchased should be very precise.
