Laboratory equipment and apparatus is not the same across all labs and science experiments. The amount of money that a lab has or what it is mainly used for, e.g. School experiments or academic research, will vary the apparatus that is available inside. There are some apparatus that are quite common across all laboratories, these include, but are certainly not limited to, Bunsen burners, test tubes, evaporating dishes, wire gauzes and beakers.

• Bunsen Burner. A Bunsen burner produces a single open gas flame that can be used for heating, combustion and sterilization. Depending on the flow through the throat hole there are typically four different flames that can be produced. The hose is connected to a gas nozzle on the laboratory bench and connected to the burner through rubber hosing.
• Test Tube. A test tube may also be referred to as a culture tube or a sample tube. It is a finger like length of glass that is open at the top and has a rounded bottom. They are available in a number of different sizes and often have a flared lip to help when pouring out the contents.
• Evaporating Dish. This dish can be used when experimenting on solids and supernatant fluids. It most cases it can be used with objects until their boiling point. Their main purpose is to help evaporate water from a substance to ensure that the most concentrated solution possible is left behind.
• Wire Gauze. Within the lab, wire gauzes are used to place on top of Bunsen burners and provide a platform on which other things can be placed. This platform can be used to support other apparatus, such as the evaporating dish.
• Beakers. A lab beaker is a simple container that can be used for mixing, stirring and heating liquids. Most commonly they are cylindrical in shape, have a flat bottom and a lipped rim for pouring. In some cases this lip also has an additional spout to aid the process.
