Scientists and researchers always make it a point to measure reagents accurately in order to record the right readings and get precise results. Incorrect measurements make it difficult to get the desired outcome and the most common ways of making an error are either manual or an error in the lab instrument itself. When you use a lab instrument correctly, not only do you improve the degree of operational safety but also...

    5 Things to Remember While Using Bottle Top Dispensers

    A Bottle Top Dispenser (BTD) is a scientific apparatus that helps in dispensing chemical reagents (acids, bases, alkalis, etc). The process of dispensing, though can be carried out manually, poses multiple risks like spilling of chemicals, inaccurate measurements and even fatal lab accidents. In order to prevent such hazards and enhance lab safety, Bottle Top Dispensers are one of the best dispensing alternatives available to scientists. Benefits of Bottle Top Dispensers Accuracy & Precision: Bottle Top Dispensers are known to offer approximately 0.5%...
