Different Instruments in the Department
Our botany lab has various type of instruments and research equipments used for practical labs and demo classes
A centrifuge is a device for separating particles from a solution according to their size, shape, density, viscosity of, and rotor speed. In biology, the particles are usually cells, subcellular organelles, viruses, large molecules such as proteins, and nucleic acids.
An instrument for investigating quantitatively the way in which electromagnetic radiation of different wavelengths is absorbed by a specimen
The pH meter is an electrical device that determines the acidity or basicity of aqueous solutions, one of the most commonly monitored parameters. To use a pH meter, the pH electrode is first calibrated with standard buffer solutions with known pH values that span the range being measured.
Laminar Hood sometimes also known as Laminar Air Flow is an enclosed bench designed to prevent contaminations like biological particles (SPM) or any particle sensitive device. This closed cabinet is usually made up of stainless steel without any gap or joints where spores might collect.
An autoclave is a machine that provides a physical method of sterilization by killing bacteria, viruses, and even spores present in the material put inside of the vessel using steam under pressure. Autoclave sterilizes the materials by heating them up to a particular temperature for a specific period of time.
A water bath is laboratory equipment made from a container filled with heated water. It is used to incubate samples in water at a constant temperature over a long period of time.
A laboratory colorimeter, also referred to as a digital colorimeter, is an instrument used to measure the absorbance of wavelengths of light at a particular frequency (color) by a sample. ... In particular, a portable colorimeter can be used for on-site environmental analyses.
Laboratory balances from a general standpoint measure the mass of an object, in the laboratory they are used to measure solids, liquids, tissue, they have a wide range of uses in virtually any laboratory including clinical, research and environmental settings
Electrophoresis equipment applies an electric charge to molecules, causing them to migrate towards their oppositely charged electrode. The technique is found in all research and clinical laboratories utilizing DNA and protein applications, and is divided into gel and capillary techniques.
A magnetic stirrer or magnetic stir plate is commonly used in laboratories to ensure liquid samples are homogeneous in consistency and temperature. A magnetic stirrer can use magnetic stirrer bars or inductive agitators to complete the mixing process.
Binocular microscopes also swivel (Interpupillary Adjustment) to allow for different distances between the eyes of different individuals. Objective Lenses are the primary optical lenses on a microscope. They range from 4x-100x and typically, include, three, four or five on lens on most microscopes.
A water distillation unit or distilled machine comes in various designs, capacities and lab grade water purity level. ... Each unit is carefully made to generate lab grade water free from inorganic solids and organics, bacteria and pyrogen.
A microtome is used to make thin slices of tissue (usually 4 μm but can be 2–10 μm). The cut tissue is floated over a water bath, in order to eliminate wrinkles and distortion in the tissue, and picked up on a slide.
