Laboratory 2018-01-22T12:27:09+00:00


A laboratory is a place that has controlled conditions in which scientific research, experiments, and measurement may be carried out. Scientific laboratories can be found in schools and universities, in industries.

As a result of the distinctive zones of science, there are a wide range of sorts of science labs that each incorporate diverse logical hardware.

Most labs have workbenches or counter tops at which the scientist may sit or stand to do work comfortably. This is important because scientists can spend all day working in the lab. A scientist usually records an experiment’s progress in a lab notebook, but modern labs almost always contain a computer for data collection and analysis.

Lab Equipment
Lab techniques include the procedures and equipment used in science to carry out an experiment. Lab techniques follow scientific methods; some of them involve the use of simple laboratory equipment such as glassware.

Light Microscopes
Microscopes are instruments used to view objects that are too small to be seen by the naked eye. Optical microscopes, use visible light and lenses to magnify objects. They are the simplest and most widely used type of microscopes.

Resolution is a measure of the clarity of an image; it is the minimum distance two points can be separated and still be distinguished as two separate points. Because light beams have a physical size, which is described in wavelengths, it is difficult to see an object that is about the same size or smaller than the wavelength of light.

fluffy, and protests underneath that size can’t be seen. Amplification includes expanding the picture of a question with the goal that it seems significantly greater than its real size Magnification also refers to the number of times an object is magnified.

Electron Microscopes
Electron magnifying instruments utilize electrons rather than photons (light), since electrons have a significantly shorter wavelength than photons and in this manner enable an analyst to see things at substantially higher amplification, far higher than an optical microscope can possibly magnify.


In the case of an accident, it is important to begin by telling your teacher and to know where to find safety equipment.

Some common safety equipment in a school lab:

Fire Extinguishers
Fire Blanket
Eye-Wash Fountain

Gear normally found in a science labs incorporate magnifying instruments, measuring scales or parities, water showers, crystal, (for example, test tubes, carafes, and recepticles), Bunsen burners, tongs, pipettes, synthetic reagents, lab, lab coats, goggles, and biohazard waste containers.
Always wear personal protective equipment such as goggles and gloves, wear enclosed shoes, and do not eat or drink in the lab.
