  • Harvard Laboratory for Computer Graphics and Spatial Analysis

    The Harvard Laboratory for Computer Graphics and Spatial Analysis (1965 to 1991) pioneered early cartographic and architectural computer applications that led to integrated geographic information systems (GIS). Some of the Laboratory's influential programs included SYMAP, SYMVU, GRID, CALFORM, and POLYVRT. The Laboratory's Odyssey project created a geographic information system that served as a milestone in the development of integrated mapping systems. The Laboratory influenced numerous computer graphic, mapping and architectural systems such as Intergraph, Computervision, and Esri.

  • Laboratory rubber stopper

    Laboratory rubber stopper

    A laboratory rubber stopper or a rubber bung is mainly used in chemical laboratory in combination with flasks and test tube and also for fermentation in winery. Generally, in laboratory, the sizes of rubber stopper can be varied up to approximately 16 sizes and each of it is specific to certain type of container. As the rubber stopper is used in many experiment, some specific experiment requires a specific material. For example, the M35 Green Neoprene is for chemical resistance. For food fermentation, M18 white natural gum is preferred. For high temperature application, red or white silicone rubber stopper should be used.

  • Laboratory water bath

    Laboratory water bath

    A water bath is laboratory equipment made from a container filled with heated water. It is used to incubate samples in water at a constant temperature over a long period of time. All water baths have a digital or an analogue interface to allow users to set a desired temperature. Utilisations include warming of reagents, melting of substrates or incubation of cell cultures. It is also used to enable certain chemical reactions to occur at high temperature. Water bath is a preferred heat source for heating flammable chemicals instead of an open flame to prevent ignition. Different types of water baths are used depending on application. For all water baths, it can be used up to 99.9 °C. When temperature is above 100 °C, alternative methods such as oil bath, silicone bath or sand bath may be used.
