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:


Item Function
Measuring Cup Equipment for measuring the volume of liquid that contains inside it, ranging from 10ml to 2 liters.
Test Tube Glass tube that served to mix, contain, and react chemicals inside it whether in solid or liquid form.
Volumetric Flask To alter a liquid or solution to a certain volume.
Erlenmeyer Flask For mixing, measuring, and store a liquid or solution inside it.
Beaker Used to contain an object.
Drop Pipette To move a volume of liquid to another container in a certain amount.
Measuring Pipette To take and move a solution with a certain amount as stated with the size of the pipette.
Tripod To support an object above it.
Test Tube Rack To store, dry, and protect the reaction tubes so they will not be moldy or damaged.
Test Tube Clamp To clamp the reacting tubes while the heating process occurs.
Drip Plate A solid-surface used to test a liquid or chemical reaction.
Mortar and Pestle Used to crush or smooth a solid object or object that is still in crystal form.
Wire Netting To hold a beaker and flask when heating using bunsen or puff.
Nichrome Wire To identify a substance by means of flame test the subject.
Separatory Funnel To separate the components of the solvent phase with different densities which are usually used in the liquid extraction process.
Stirring Rod To mix a solution with chemicals inside the laboratory.
Glass Cup Used 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 Flask To separate a solution to each individual component.
Condenser To cool a hot liquid and condense the vapor.
Plastic or Metal Spatulas As a medium for taking chemicals in solid or crystalline form.
Burette For high-precision titrations and also for measuring the volume of a liquid or solution.
Fillers To suck a solution or liquid.
Desiccator For a place to store a sample that is water-free.
Puff Burner To heat a solution or burn a substance in the process of a chemical or another experiment.
Bunsen Burner For heating, burning, and also used for sterilizing Ose needles and others.
Glass Stirrer To assist in homogenizing a solution and also to help drain the solution into the funnel.
Stainless Steel Spatulas To take chemicals in solid or crystal form.
Porcelain Cup For a place to make up the material as well as to atomize the chemicals.
Analytical Balance To measure a chemical with 0,00001-gram accuracy. It can only measure a maximum of 210 grams in weight.
Bottle Spray To store and spray a liquid.
Burette Clamp A surface to place a burette.
Stative For erecting burettes, separating funnels, and other laboratory equipment.
Cuvette For containers of objects to be tested or studied using a spectrophotometer.
Cuvette Rack To store a cuvette.
Ose Limit To do Inoculation
L-Shape Stirrer To flatten and mix the samples that are inserted into the media contained in the Petri dish.
Puff Lamp For sterilization (Lighting Ose) prior to inoculation.
Microscope To see and observe a micro-sized material.
Centrifuge To separate the particles from the precipitate substance.
Micropipette To take a liquid by taking in a very small number of drops and volume.
PH Meter To measure the level of acid contained in the material.
Rotator and Mixers To mix a bunch of substance that is about to be reacted.
Fume Cabinet To limit exposure to harmful gases and also to protect against dirty dust in certain rooms.
Litmus Paper Estimating the level of acidity or alkalinity contained in a liquid.
Filter Paper To filter a substance.
Petri Cup For cell proliferation.
Oven To sterilize laboratory equipment.
Universal Indicator To identify the level of acidity or alkalinity contained in a liquid by showing it on the color indicator.
Liquid Thermometer To measure the temperature of a liquid.
Viscometer To measure the viscosity of a substance.
Pycnometer To measure the density and density of liquids.
Multimeter To measure current, resistance, voltage, and flowing voltage.
Water Bath To carry out heating involving water media.
Object Glass To place an object to be studied or observed with a microscope.
Gloves To protect our hands from dangerous substances.
Support Ring To support or clamp the separating funnel or breakage glass during the transfer of substances.
Evaporating Dish For the evaporation container of substances that are difficult or cannot evaporate.
Hot Plate To heat a flammable substance when heated using a Bunsen burner.
Magnifying Glass To observe a small particle material.
Those are the tools that are usually in the laboratory.
