In a medical laboratory, several tests are conducted on clinical specimens for getting information on the health condition of a patient. In order to help in the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions different types of lab equipment are used. Scientists used different lab equipment to conduct experiments, collect data and take measurements. This information helps the medical laboratory scientist to analyze the medical state of a patient and thus proper remedies can be taken. Hospital and physician office laboratories conduct most of the tests and a few of them are conducted in independent laboratories.

Commonly Used Lab Equipment

Blood gas analyzers: Blood gas analyzer is an instrument to measure the partial pressures of oxygen, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide in blood. It is also used to know the acidity of blood. Blood gas reagents are used to determine the amount of gases and also the pH level in blood.

Microscopes: Microscopes play an important part in a medical laboratory. There are different types of microscopes like fluorescence microscopes, laboratory microscopes, stereo inspection microscopes and educational microscopes.

Balances: Balances are used for weighing applications in a laboratory. Balances are of several types – mechanical balance, precision balance, and analytical balance.

Sterilizers: Elimination of microbiological organisms from medical equipment is done by sterilizers. A lot of quality sterilizers are easily accessible in our market.

In addition to the above equipment, pipettes, co-oximeters, luminometers, chemostats, spectrophotometers, thermometers, osmometers, flow cytometers, densitometers, centrifuges, DNA analyzers, colposcopes, hematology analyzers, and immunoassay analyzers are some of the important medical equipment used.
