Laboratory instruments for versatile use

Laboratory instruments are among the most important tools for work in chemical and biological research and test laboratories, but also in pharmacies and in practice. In many cases, exact work results are only possible if work is carried out under sterile conditions or the mixing of different substances is avoided. It is therefore helpful to have a sufficient number of spoons, spatulas, pliers and tweezers.

Spoons and spatulas - laboratory instruments for measuring and stirring

Various laboratory instruments in the form of special spoons are essential equipment for laboratories, pharmacies and practices in order to measure small amounts and at the same time stir them into liquids. The apothecary's spoon is a practical instrument, as it often combines a spoon and a spatula. Other important laboratory instruments in the form of spoons are weighing spoons, which are offered with and without a spatula. Weighing spoons are straight or curved, so that complete absorption of all substances is guaranteed when stirring, even in bulbous flasks. Special phosphor spoons have a large indentation and the shape of a small trowel and special sodium spoons are filigree networks made of copper mesh.
The selection of spatulas, which are small but important laboratory instruments, ranges from the alginate spatula, which is particularly needed in the dental laboratory, and the extra-wide apothecary spatula with a wooden handle, to wax spatulas, special powder spatulas and spatulas, which are particularly suitable for working with Petri dishes are. The button spatula is also used for crushing due to the metal ball attached to the handle of the spoon. Laboratory spoons and spatulas are characterized by their long handles so that they can also be used in deep laboratory glassware.

Knives and scissors as laboratory instruments for separating solid materials

The most common laboratory instruments used in laboratories to separate solids are scalpels. The single-use scalpel, in particular, is a practical and inexpensive tool. Foil knives are primarily used to open closures and packaging, while ceramic knives are widely used in laboratories and practices due to their hard and rust-free blades. The blade of the laboratory folding knife is particularly sharp, so it is sunk into the knife handle when it is not in use. Laboratory instruments such as the spatula knife are characterized by their versatility.
Special laboratory scissors are laboratory instruments made of high-quality stainless steel in different shapes that can be adapted to a wide range of applications. Especially when dealing with small, filigree materials, micro-scissors with a handy handle and a very small cutting surface are used in the laboratory, while the straight and narrow microscopic scissors and the curved dissecting scissors allow particularly fine and precise cuts.

Pliers and tweezers for laboratory work

Important laboratory instruments are tweezers, which are available in many different shapes in order to be able to grip even the smallest materials and substances. The various forceps are also important for use in the practice and in the operating theater. Pliers as laboratory instruments are primarily used to grasp things that cannot be grasped with bare hands. The ampoule tongs ensure sufficient sterility and the cup tongs, the crucible tongs and the plunger tongs are also used to be able to grip hot laboratory vessels easily.

Instrument sets for extensive use in the laboratory

Special instrument sets contain the most important laboratory instruments for use in biological and chemical laboratories. The microscope set includes all the important laboratory instruments for working directly on the microscope, while the dissecting set also includes all the important laboratory instruments for preparation.
