60 List of Laboratory Tools and Their Function

A laboratory or usually known as Lab is a place usually used to conduct or to-do an experiment or research. Certainly, there are a lot of tools that are provided to support those activities. Here is the list of tools that are available in the laboratory:

Measuring CupEquipment for measuring the volume of liquid that contains inside it, ranging from 10ml to 2 liters.
Test TubeGlass tube that served to mix, contain, and react chemicals inside it whether in solid or liquid form.
Volumetric FlaskTo alter a liquid or solution to a certain volume.
Erlenmeyer FlaskFor mixing, measuring, and store a liquid or solution inside it.
BeakerUsed to contain an object.
Drop PipetteTo move a volume of liquid to another container in a certain amount.
Measuring PipetteTo take and move a solution with a certain amount as stated with the size of the pipette.
TripodTo support an object above it.
Test Tube RackTo store, dry, and protect the reaction tubes so they will not be moldy or damaged.
Test Tube ClampTo clamp the reacting tubes while the heating process occurs.
Drip PlateA solid-surface used to test a liquid or chemical reaction.
Mortar and PestleUsed to crush or smooth a solid object or object that is still in crystal form.
Wire NettingTo hold a beaker and flask when heating using bunsen or puff.
Nichrome WireTo identify a substance by means of flame test the subject.
Separatory FunnelTo separate the components of the solvent phase with different densities which are usually used in the liquid extraction process.
Stirring RodTo mix a solution with chemicals inside the laboratory.
Glass CupUsed for many things; To place an object as observation material, to store materials that will be weighted later. The cover is usually used in the sample heating process.
Distillation FlaskTo separate a solution to each individual component.
CondenserTo cool a hot liquid and condense the vapor.
Plastic or Metal SpatulasAs a medium for taking chemicals in solid or crystalline form.
BuretteFor high-precision titrations and also for measuring the volume of a liquid or solution.
FillersTo suck a solution or liquid.
DesiccatorFor a place to store a sample that is water-free.
Puff BurnerTo heat a solution or burn a substance in the process of a chemical or another experiment.
Bunsen BurnerFor heating, burning, and also used for sterilizing Ose needles and others.
Glass StirrerTo assist in homogenizing a solution and also to help drain the solution into the funnel.
Stainless Steel SpatulasTo take chemicals in solid or crystal form.
Porcelain CupFor a place to make up the material as well as to atomize the chemicals.
Analytical BalanceTo measure a chemical with 0,00001-gram accuracy. It can only measure a maximum of 210 grams in weight.
Bottle SprayTo store and spray a liquid.
Burette ClampA surface to place a burette.
StativeFor erecting burettes, separating funnels, and other laboratory equipment.
CuvetteFor containers of objects to be tested or studied using a spectrophotometer.
Cuvette RackTo store a cuvette.
Ose LimitTo do Inoculation
L-Shape StirrerTo flatten and mix the samples that are inserted into the media contained in the Petri dish.
Puff LampFor sterilization (Lighting Ose) prior to inoculation.
MicroscopeTo see and observe a micro-sized material.
CentrifugeTo separate the particles from the precipitate substance.
MicropipetteTo take a liquid by taking in a very small number of drops and volume.
PH MeterTo measure the level of acid contained in the material.
Rotator and MixersTo mix a bunch of substance that is about to be reacted.
Fume CabinetTo limit exposure to harmful gases and also to protect against dirty dust in certain rooms.
Litmus PaperEstimating the level of acidity or alkalinity contained in a liquid.
Filter PaperTo filter a substance.
Petri CupFor cell proliferation.
OvenTo sterilize laboratory equipment.
Universal IndicatorTo identify the level of acidity or alkalinity contained in a liquid by showing it on the color indicator.
Liquid ThermometerTo measure the temperature of a liquid.
ViscometerTo measure the viscosity of a substance.
PycnometerTo measure the density and density of liquids.
MultimeterTo measure current, resistance, voltage, and flowing voltage.
Water BathTo carry out heating involving water media.
Object GlassTo place an object to be studied or observed with a microscope.
GlovesTo protect our hands from dangerous substances.
Support RingTo support or clamp the separating funnel or breakage glass during the transfer of substances.
Evaporating DishFor the evaporation container of substances that are difficult or cannot evaporate.
Hot PlateTo heat a flammable substance when heated using a Bunsen burner.
Magnifying GlassTo observe a small particle material.

Those are the tools that are usually in the laboratory.
