Assignment 2 M3 Specialist and Non specialist lab

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

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.

Conclusion

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.

    However, even whilst using the equipment we used, there's uncertainty present which is as follows: pH probe: � Burette:� 0.05 ml Measuring cylinder: �0.1 ml Also, the phenolphthalein that was used to titrate was found not to be very effective.

    while 1/4 of the original moles of CH3COOH remain, so [CH3COO-] = 3[CH3COOH] and Ka = 1.75 x 10-5 = [H3O+][CH3COO-]/[CH3COOH] = 3[H3O+]/1 [H3O+] = (1/3)(1.75 x 10-5) = 5.83 x 10-6, pH = 5.23 At the Equivalence Point The equivalence point is reached after 100 mL of the NaOH

  2. evaulate the differences between a vet lab and a radioactive lab

    Radioactive labs allocate the use of radioactive material to a special room called the process area. This is to restrict the allowance of loose radioactive materials to as few locations within the lab as possible. This area is identified by defining the edge with caution tape or other obvious indication.

    In test number 2, a single displacement reaction was not predicted to happen due to the Activity Series of Metal. The iron would not displace the magnesium in the solutions. This will occur because magnesium has a higher placement and is more reactive on the activity series of metals than iron.
