Description: The thermal cycler (also known as a thermocycler, PCR machine or DNA amplifier) is a laboratory apparatus most commonly used to amplify segments of DNA via the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). … The device has a thermal block with holes where tubes holding the reaction mixtures can be inserted.
Description: A microplate reader is a laboratory instrument that is used to measure chemical, biological or physical reactions, properties and analytes within the well of a microplate. A microplate consists of small wells in which separated reactions take place.
Description: BOD Incubator (Bio-Oxygen Demand) are used to maintain temperature for test tissue culture growth, storage of bacterial cultures and incubation where high degree of constant temperature accuracy is required.
Description: A homogenizer is a piece of laboratory or industrial equipment used for the homogenization of various types of material, such as tissue, plant, food, soil, and many others. Many different models have been developed using various physical technologies for disruption.
Description: TLC UV Cabinet is suitable for inspection thin-layer chromatogram and other object in a undarkened room. The front is closed with a magnetic lock, which can be pushed open. A glass filer in the viewing window protects the eyes against reflected short-wave UV light.
Description: Spectrophotometry is a method to measure how much a chemical substance absorbs light by measuring the intensity of light as a beam of light passes through sample solution. The basic principle is that each compound absorbs or transmits light over a certain range of wavelength.M
Description: A pH meter is an instrument used to measure acidity or alkalinity of a solution – also know as pH. An electrical conductivity meter (EC meter) measures the electrical conductivity in a solution. It has multiple applications in research and engineering, with common usage in hydroponics, aquaculture, aquaponics, and freshwater systems to monitor the amount of nutrients, salts or impurities in the water.
Description: A magnetic stirrer or magnetic mixer is a laboratory device that employs a rotating magnetic field to cause a stir bar (or flea) immersed in a liquid to spin very quickly, thus stirring it. … The limited size of the bar means that magnetic stirrers can only be used for relatively small experiments, of 4 liters or less.
Description: A fume hood is a type of local ventilation device that is designed to limit exposure to hazardous or toxic fumes, vapors or dusts.
Description: Hot air ovens are electrical devices which use dry heat to sterilize. They were originally developed by Pasteur. Generally, they use a thermostat to control the temperature. Their double walled insulation keeps the heat in and conserves energy, the inner layer being a poor conductor and outer layer being metallic.
Description: A microcentrifuge, also called a microfuge, is an important piece of lab equipment; it is used to spin small (2 ml or less) liquid samples at high speeds (generally tens of thousands times g-force).
Description: The digital mass balances in the General Chemistry labs are very sensitive instruments used for weighing substances to the milligram (0.001 g) level. Please treat them with care. Use containers when weighing chemicals and always weigh objects at room temperature.
Description: Digital water baths with easy to use temperature control and clear to read LED water temperature. Incorporated over temperature protection system that tracks the set temperature and controls the heater in the event of a fault. The heater is mounted underneath the tank to allow easy cleaning.
