(LABORATORY TOOLS & EQUIPMENTS)

1. 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.

2. PH meter, electric device used to measure hydrogen-ion activity (acidity or


alkalinity) in solution.

1
3. BOD analyzer for the determination of biochemical oxygen demand (BOD),
respiration and toxicity in waste water. Using BioMonitor, operators can control
their waste water treatment plant in an optimal way.

4. Refrigerated Incubators, often called B.O.D Incubators or Low


Temperature Incubators, are commonly used for applications such
asB.O.D. Determinations, Plant and Insect Studies, Fermentation Studies, and
Bacterial Culturing among many others.

5. Fume hood is typically a large piece of equipment enclosing five sides of a work
area, the bottom of which is most commonly located at a standing work height.

6. Oil Free Adjustable Vacuum / Pressure Use to provide convenient vacuum
throughout the lab.

7. Desiccators are sealable enclosures containing desiccants used for


preserving moisture-sensitive items such as cobalt chloride paper for another use. A
common use for desiccators is to protect chemicals which are hygroscopic or which
react with water from humidity.

8. Lab Refrigerator is a popular household appliance that consists of a thermally


insulated compartment and a heat pump (mechanical, electronic or chemical) that
transfers heat from the inside of the fridge to its external environment so that the
inside of the fridge is cooled to a temperature below the ambient temperature of the
room.

9. Drying ovens are devices used to remove water and other solvents from the items
placed inside them.

10. Analytical balance (often called a "lab balance") is a class of balance designed to
measure small mass in the sub-milligram range. The measuring pan of an analytical
balance (0.1 mg or better) is inside a transparent enclosure with doors so
that dust does not collect and so any air currents in the room do not affect the
balance's operation. This enclosure is often called a draft shield.

11. Oil and Grease Analyzer designed specifically to measure fats, oil and grease levels
in wastewater.

12. Turbidimeters to analyze turbidity in water and in environmental and industrial


applications.
