There are so many different pieces of apparatus that are used in biology that it will be impossible to mention them all here but here are some examples:

  • Apparatus used in biology
A magnifying glass: This is used to give magnified images of an object

A Petri dish: This is used to hold a culture so that bacteria, viruses and cells can be grown on them and studied.

A thermometer: This is used to measure temperature.

A microscope: This is used to look at things in greater detail because it will magnify them by many times. They are usually used to examine things that are too small to see with the naked eye.

A test tube: This is a small glass tube that is used to hold, mix and sometimes to heat either liquids or solids. There are also used in chemistry.

A dissecting pan: This is a pan that is used during dissections so that fluids or organs can be contained without spillage.

Dissecting scissors: Used for cutting up organs and tissue.

Dissecting pin: Used to hold an organ or tissue in place when it is being dissected.

Forceps: These are used for holding, grasping, extracting and manipulating things; forceps are also used by surgeons.

Bunsen burner: This is used as a source of heat and is made from a hollow tube that fits round a flame. It has an opening at the base that can be adjusted to regulate the air flow and to control the flame.

Safety goggles: These are worn by operators in the laboratory and are used to protect the eyes from debris, or splashes from chemicals.
