Description: A microscope with a head that has two eyepiece lenses. Nowadays, binocular is typically used to refer to compound or high power microscopes where the two eyepieces view through a single objective lens.
Description: Soxhlet extraction is used when the desired compound has a limited solubility in a solvent, and the impurity is insoluble in that solvent. It allows for unmonitored and unmanaged operation while efficiently recycling a small amount of solvent to dissolve a larger amount of material.
Description: Insect light traps, or ILTs, work great for monitoring pest infestations by catching flying insects such as flies, yellow jackets, Asian lady beetles, and red flour beetles. The blue lamps are specifically designed to emit light at the ultraviolet wavelength.
Description: Fumigation chamber is used as a pest control equipment in which a pesticide gas or vapor is released into the air or injected into the soil to kill or eliminate pests.
Description: Insect collecting refers to the collection of insects and other arthropods for scientific study or as a hobby. Because most insects are small and the majority cannot be identified without the examination of minute morphological characters, entomologists often make and maintain insect collections.
Description: Stereo Microscopes enable 3D viewing of specimens visible to the naked eye. They are commonly known as Low Power or Dissecting Microscopes. An estimated 99% of stereo applications employ less than 50x magnification. Use them for viewing insects, crystals, plant life, circuit boards etc.
Description: Insect specimens are prepared and preserved in a variety of formats depending on a number of factors such as life stage, collecting method, species group, and/or research objective. These factors determine curation objectives. Storage options will also depend on the extent and diversity of collection.
