Abstract

This chapter describes glasswares used in biochemistry laboratory. Various types of glasswares are used in the biochemistry laboratory to measure, prepare and transfer or to keep solutions, reagents and samples. These glasswares may be volumetric (graduated) or non-volumetric (non-graduated). Volumetric glasswares include flasks, measuring cylinders, pipettes, etc. Non-volumetric glasswares include beakers, funnels, bottles and test tubes, etc. Beakers are wide, straight sided cylindrical vessels available in a wide range of volumes from 50 mL to several liters. They are used mainly for the preparation of the solutions and reagents. Pipettes are used for delivery of accurate and controlled volumetric measurements. They are of various types differing in their levels of accuracy and precision which includes complex adjustable or automatic pipettes.
