Assignment 2 M3 Specialist and Non specialist lab

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Assignment 2 M3 In this assignment I am going to compare a non-specialist and a specialist laboratory. Non-Specialist Laboratory: An example of a non-specialist laboratory would be a school science laboratory; the lab would have standard safety equipment such as safety goggles, protective clothing, aprons and gloves. The lab will only have equipment needed for a practical the students will be carrying out so the equipment they will use equipment such as Bunsen burner, test tubes, test tube racks, stands and clamps, thermometer and for a different experiment the students might use equipment such as power packs, batteries, cell holder and bulbs. The science lab will have a first aid kit and eye wash stations. ...read more.


* New fume cupboard so that when testing substances that let off toxic fumes or a bad smell it doesn?t spread in the whole lab and is just discarded of safely. * Storage cupboard at the back of the room for storing equipment, text book etc this will really help keep the lab organised, clean and tidy. * Also sinks to be built into each student bench so that if water is required during a practical it can easily accessed and also not cause a que around other sinks in the lab. * Eyes wash station so that if an accident occurs where chemical enters the eye it can quickly be washed out to prevent damage to the eye. ...read more.


This type of medical lab will mostly be used to test blood samples and tissue sample of humans to test for any kind of disease or infections. My microbiology lab will have the following equipment: * Lamina Flow Cabinet to avoid contamination of biological samples. * A vortex mixer will be needed to mix liquids together. * Incubator will be needed for tests that require a controlled environment * A waring blender to mix together substances. * Balances will be needed throughout the lab to weigh substances and chemicals. * Sterilising oven will be needed to sterilise equipment. * A coliform water bath for food processing. * Sinks will be needed in the lab for washing things. * Fire extinguishers in case something sets fire * Eye wash station and first aid kit in case chemicals get into the eye or if someone get injured ...read more.

    It took longer than expected for the color change and thus ph to occur. Because of our time constraint, we could not wait until the phenolphthalein changed the color of the solution. After trial 1, we started adding a couple of more drops of the indicator to account for the slow process.

    In any mixture of a strong base and a weak base of comparable concentration, the strong base controls the pH, so that [OH-] is approximately equal to the excess concentration of added NaOH. There were added 200 mL x 0.1 molar = 20 mmol NaOH, but of this 10 mmol

    The process area is used because it has coated absorbent paper on the lab bench to insulate the surface from contamination and limit the spread of spills. Activities of the veterinary lab are widespread. Hence test and analysis on animals are carried out in major parts of the lab and not just a special room.
