Labware Type

  • Ampules

    Ampules are small vials made of plastic or glass used for storing substances, and protecting them from air and contaminants.

  • Beakers

    Beakers are containers, usually glass or plastic, for mixing, measuring, and heating liquids. They are often cylindrical, with graduations, a flat bottom, and lip or spout for pouring.

  • Burettes

    Burettes are elongated cylindrical containers, with a volumetric graduation down the length and an end valve, for measuring precise amounts of liquid. They are made of plastic or glass, and are often used for titration.

  • Carboys

    Carboys are plastic or glass containers, with a cylindrical body, flat base, and a narrow neck. They are often used for storing or transporting liquids.

  • Condensers

    Condensers are glassware consisting of a large outer tube, and a smaller inner tube, used to cool hot liquid and vapor. Hot liquid or vapor flows through the smaller tube, while the outer tube has two openings where the coolant enters and exits.

  • Crucibles

    Crucibles are cup-shaped containers designed to withstand very high heat. They are often made of glass or ceramic and are used for heating and desiccating substances.

  • Cuvettes

    Cuvettes are a small cylindrical or square tube made of plastic or glass, with a sealed base and an open end, used for holding liquids in spectroscopic experiments. Cuvettes must be clear and free of imperfections to avoid interfering with the reading.

  • Cylinders

    Cylinders are containers with graduations that have curved surfaces and two flat, round ends. They are often used for measuring substances.

  • Lab bottles

    Lab bottles are made of various material types and sizes and are designed to hold and store substances. They often have graduations.

  • Lab bottletop
dispensers

    Lab bottletop dispensers are attached to the top of a bottle, to control the amount of liquid dispensed.

  • Lab dishes

    Lab dishes are made of various material types and sizes and are designed to hold and store substances.

  • Lab flasks

    Lab flasks are glass or plastic containers with a wide body, flat bottom, a narrow neck, and an opening at the top. They are used for storing, mixing, heating, and measuring liquids.

  • Lab funnels

    Lab funnels have a wide top, and a narrow bottom used to channel substances into containers with a small mouth. They often have graduations and are made of various materials to withstand different laboratory conditions, and can have stopcocks to control the rate of flow.

  • Lab jars

    Lab jars are cylindrical containers with two flat round ends, a wide mouth, and often have a lid for storing substances.

  • Lab tubes

    Lab tubes are cylindrical tubes usually with a u-shaped or v-shaped bottom. They are often made of plastic or glass, have graduations, and are designed to withstand high temperatures and corrosives.

  • Lab vials

    Lab vials are cylindrical containers for storing or dispensing substances. They are usually made of glass or plastic, and have a flat bottom and some type of lid, stopper, or dropper.

  • Microplates

    Microplates are containers with multiple small wells that are used as test tubes. They are usually flat-bottomed, rectangular, and made of plastic.

  • Mortar and
pestles

    Mortar and pestles are tools used to grind and mix substances. The mortar is a bowl made of wood, ceramic, glass, or stone and the pestle is a long, heavy object used to grind and crush substances against the mortar.
