In the first part of this article, we highlighted some of the common pieces of equipment you will find in a chemistry lab. Here, we are going to continue on with that theme, adding a number of additional pieces of gear to the list.
Chemistry is a field filled with equipment. If you are going to perform any meaningful experiments in a chemistry lab, you are going to need at least a basic collection of pieces of laboratory equipment. Some experiments call for only the basics, while others will require the use of complex, expensive pieces. In this article – the first of a two-part series – we are going to take a look at some of the basic items which are typically found in a chemistry lab.
Earlier this week, we were pleased to unveil our collaboration with BioSurplus. This relationship establishes an East Coast base of operations for BioSurplus that will optimize returns for companies seeking to sell their surplus. The collaboration will also help lower shipping costs for customers purchasing equipment in the eastern half of the U.S.
The need for reliable and accurate laboratory scales is obvious. If you can’t trust your scale to give you accurate readings, you can’t trust anything that you do in the lab. Your scale is an essential tool, and you must trust it completely. So, when it starts to ‘act up’, you may think about replacing it to make sure your experiments and other work are not compromised.
Veteran scientists – i.e. Chem Crazies, Bio Buffs, Sciency Superhumans… you guys know your lab glass. However, science dabblers – the careful craftsmen dancing on the ledge of science – this is for you.
Are you avidly green? Do you recycle on the regular? Is your thermostat in your home or work place set for maximum efficiency? Good.
Are you a home brewer with a less than desirable set up?
Want to upgrade from easy bake oven to full on mad scientist?
Lab equipment is the way to go!!
These 8 pieces of lab equipment can take your hobby or small business from a basic basement brew to carefully crafted concoction. Cheers!
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and while everyone is busy figuring out how to best to dote on their loved ones, hardly anyone thinks of their poor, unloved spectrophotometer.
RRR – reduce, reuse, recycle… or maybe more like restore and re-imagine!
Most of the optical microscopes acquired by BaneBio come from surplus sources and biological firms that have moved, merged or simply run out of the required funding to carry on. After sitting on a warehouse shelf for many years, these microscopes are in need of a good cleaning, proper lubrication, and alignment. Some additionally require mechanical repair and parts replacement. The BaneBio team performs these tasks with expertise and confidence.
Water aspirators, once a staple in many biology and chemistry labs, are becoming an increasingly uncommon sight. These pieces connect to a lab faucet, and as water flows through a tube inside the aspirator, its velocity increases, creating a vacuum in the connected sidearm. Their historic popularity stemmed mainly from their low purchase price. But a closer look at the performance, environmental impact, and lifetime cost of a water aspirator may help convince aspirator devotees that it’s time to switch to a vacuum pump.
