Another important type of laboratory equipment is laboratory glassware such as the beaker or reagent bottle, or even s thermometers. Laboratory equipment is generally used to either perform an experiment or to take measurements and gather data. Larger or more sophisticated equipment is generally called a scientific instrument.
