Title: Aim: why is laboratory equipment so important?


1
Aim why is laboratory equipment so important?
  • Do Now list 5 safety rules
  • Homework find the practical uses for the
    following equipment
  • Gel Electrophoresis
  • Chromatography
  • Centrifuge

2
Laboratory Equipment
3
Pipette
  • This is used to add or remove small amounts of
    fluids.

4
Beaker
  • Can be used to measure liquids.
  • This is not a very accurate tool for measuring.
  • This can be used to store liquids .

5
Petri dish
  • Used for growing bacteria, fungi or any small
    organisms.

6
Beaker Tongs
  • Used to hold beakers after they have been heated
    up.

7
Erlenmeyer Flask
  • This flask is used when you have fluids that need
    to be stirred.
  • Also this is very good to use when heating
    fluids.
  • Can be used to measure fluids.

8
Bunsen Burner
  • Used for heating

9
Graduated Cylinder
  • This device is used for accurately measuring
    fluids.

10
Test Tubes
  • These are used to store small amounts of fluids.
  • This can be used to hold hot liquids.

11
Test Tube Rack
  • This is used to hold test tubes so they do not
    spill.

12
Test Tube Holder
  • This is used to hold test tubes after they have
    been heated.

13
Meter Stick
  • Used for measuring materials

14
Triple Beam Balance
  • Used to obtain the mass of an object.

15
Hot Plate
  • Used to heat of fluids.

16
Centrifuge
  • This is used to separate fluids by molecule size.
  • This tool spins fluids at an extremely fast pace.

17
Gel Electrophoresis
  • Uses electrons to separate tiny molecules such as
    DNA.
  • Also known as DNA finger printing.

18
Chromatography
  • This is used to separate mixtures by molecule
    size.
  • Also used to separate pigments.

19
Microscope
  • Used to enlarge tiny objects.

20
Slide and Cover Slip
  • Used to hold specimens for use in a microscope.

21
Scalpel
  • This is used in dissections to cut up different
    specimens.

22
Tweezers Forceps
  • Used to pick up tiny objects.

23
Probe
  • Used for dissections to move structures around.

24
Dissecting Pins
  • Used to hold a specimen.

25
Dissecting Tray
  • Used to put specimens in when dissecting.

26
Thermometer
  • Used to measure temperature

27
Fermentation Tube
  • This device is used to measure the amount of gas
    produced through fermentation.
