In the process of setting up a laboratory for school, college or other health care institution, it is important to ensure that the lab that you are building is equipped with all necessary items and equipment needed. This would result in even better experiments and research. It is so basic that practitioners can carry on with the practices without it. There are a few basic equipment that are compulsory and it all depends on your lab and the capacity that it can hold. Here is a list of some important items and equipment in your laboratory.
- Burettes and pipettes
Burettes and pipettes are tubes that are very thin. It is designed in that way so that it is easier to pick up liquid substance from the bottle or its jar itself. However they are able to hold a relatively small amount of liquid only. It is mainly used in dispensing liquids. There are also pipettes that come with the scale in it so it can also be used to measure liquid off a small amount. Burrata on the other hand is slightly larger than a pipette. Burette looks slightly different from a pipette where it has a stopcock at the bottom of it. This allows better control of the liquid dispensation
Beakers are basically something that is very essential when it comes to lab usage. It is used in dissolving, stirring and mixing liquid and other types of chemicals in the lab. Here are so many types of beakers that you can get your hands on depending on the research that you are conducting. Some have a flat top and some have pointed mouths. Some are plain and some have measurements with it. There are also beakers out there that are available specifically in a test tube shape.
3) Safety equipments
Safety equipment is known in completing the whole laboratory setting. These safety equipment are used in protecting from and mishaps from happening in the lab and looking at how practitioners are constantly handling chemicals, the safety equipment are used as a resolution if anything bad happens. It is so important that you temporarily need to have it in your lab. Examples of safety equipment are fire extinguisher, safety cabinet malaysia, safety glasses and safety gloves. If the particular lab practices more advanced experiments involving huge amounts of chemicals then it will also be equipped with things like fire blankets and eyewash stations.
4) Lab burner
As the name suggests, the lab burners are used in heating liquids and also on melting items that are needed for research. There are many experiments that need to be done involving methods like boiling, burning, heating and also melting. Rather than burning your needed items with direct fire, this lab burner essentially helps you in getting the flame without having to to deal with it directly and most importantly it is a way safer way in getting your work done that involves boiling and burning.
