    Acid - Base indicators
  20. acid-base indicator is also known as
  21. An instrument that allows remote operation of a pipette, usually by the attachment of an extension tube
  22. Pipettor aka
    aspirator bulb
  23. It is a laboratory equipment used to hold or support the wire gauze and other containers during experiments .

    Iron Clamp
  25. Used to hold or support beakers during experiments while connected to the iron stand.
    Iron Ring
  26. A device that measures temperature or a temperature gradient.
  27. A nearly ubiquitous laboratory instrument used for transferring milliliter volumes of liquid.
    Serological Pipet
  28. A nearly ubiquitous laboratory instrument used for transferring milliliter volumes of liquid.
    Serological Pipet
  29. aka bulb pipette allows extremely accurate measurement (to four significant figures) a volume of solution. These pipettes have a large bulb with a long narrow portion above with a single graduation mark as it is calibrated for a single volume (like a volumetric flask).
    Volumetric Pipet
  30. is shaped like a cone (flask)
  31. is used for preparing liquids with volumes of high precision. It is a flask with an approximately pear-shaped body and a long neck with a circumferential fill line.
    Volumetric flask
  32. flasks are shaped like a tube emerging from the top of a sphere. The flasks are often long neck; They can be used in distillations, or in the heating a product.
    florence flask
  33. florence flask aka
    Round-bottom flask
  34. A graduated glass tube with a tap/sto/stop cock at one end, for delivering known volumes of a liquid, especially in titrations
  35. A simple container for stirring, mixing and heating liquids commonly used in many laboratories.  ........ are generally cylindrical in shape, with a flat bottom.Most also have a small spout (or "beak") to aid pouring.
  36. Measuring cylinder or mixing cylinder is a common piece of laboratory equipment used to measure the volume of a liquid. It has a narrow cylindrical shape. Each marked line on the ....... represents the amount of liquid that has been measured.
    graduated cylinder
  37. A thin glass tube closed at one end, used to hold small amounts of material for laboratory testing or experiments.
    Test Tube
  38. A thin glass tube closed at one end, used to hold small amounts of material for laboratory testing or experiments.

    A small tube of circular or square cross section, sealed at one end, made of plastic, glass, or fused quartz (for UV light) and designed to hold samples for spectroscopic experiments.
