Laboratory Supplies

A laboratory (commonly called a lab) provides controlled conditions in which scientific or technological research, experiments, and measurement may be performed. Laboratory supplies include all the equipment used in this environment. Laboratory equipment is essential to many industries that rely on a lab, including the pharmaceutical, governmental, engineering, food, beverage and chemical. Laboratories are also common in learning spaces like schools, colleagues and universities and even aboard ships and spacecraft.
