- Petri dish
- Conical flask
- Test tube
- Graduated cylinders
- Glass slides or Microscope slides
- Centrifuge tubes
- Inoculating loop
- Is a shallow transparent lidded dish.
- It is also known as petri plate or cell culture dish.
- Petri dish or petri plate was discovered by Sir Julius Richard Petri.
- It is used to culture cells of different microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi and small mosses.
- Diameters ranging from 30-200 mm.
- It is usually made up of borosilicate glass.
- In microbiology for culture of microorganisms.
- In cell culture for cultivation of isolated cells.
- In sample storage and display.
- It is a type of flask which have a conical body with flat bottom and a cylindrical neck.
- It is also known as Erlenmeyer flask or a titration flask.
- It is named after scientist Emil Erlenmeyer.
- In microbiology, it is used for the preparation of microbial culture.
- In chemistry, it is commonly used for mixing by swirling during titration and other solvents.
- It is a laboratory equipment or glassware.
- It is generally container with flat bottom and cylindrical in shape and also have small beak to aid pouring.
- They are made up of glass [Borosilicate glass] or certain plates.
It is of three types:
- A low from or Griffin from beaker.
- A tall from or Berzelius beaker.
- A flat beaker or Crystallizer.
It is commonly used for diluting concentrated chemicals make buffers or catch products during an experiment.
- It is a finger –like length made up glass or plastic, which is closed at the bottom and open at the top.
- It is also referred as Culture tube or Sample tube.
- It is generally made up of Borosilicate glass.
- In Bioscience for handling and culturing of different organisms.
- In chemistry commonly used for handling of chemicals.
- It is a laboratory tool, sometimes also termed as pipet
- It is commonly used in biology, medicine and chemistry labs for transfer of measured volume of liquid.
- Pipettes ranges from 1-1000 µL are distinguished as Micropipettes and Macro pipettes.
- Heinrich Schnitger was first to patent micropipette in 1957.
- – It is commonly laboratory glassware which is used to measure the volume of liquid.
- It has a narrow and cylindrical in shape.
- Graduated cylinder also known as mixing or measuring cylinder.
- Graduated cylinder are made up of Polypropylene.
- It is a tube that is narrow at the bottom and wide at the top.
- It is commonly made up of stainless steel, aluminum, glass, or plastic.
- used for pouring liquids or powder.
- used for holding filter paper in filtration.
- used in transferring liquid in small container.
Glass slides or Microscope slides:
- It is flat piece of glass.
- It is commonly used for the examination under microscope.
- A standard microscope slides ranges from 75mm by 25mm and 1mm thick.
- It is generally plastic or glass tube which is used for containing liquid during centrifugation.
- It is usually made up of Polypropylene.
- It is simple laboratory tool used by microbiologists.
- It is also known as smear loop or, micro-streaker.
- It is generally made up of metal wire [such as Nicrome, platinum or tungsten].
- Inoculating loop used for transferring a small sample or inoculum from a culture of microorganisms.
- It is also used in streaking on a culture plates.
