6 Lab Consumables DSCBalances Customers Love

Laboratory consumables are goods that wear out after use and are replaced regularly. They provide protection against hazardous chemicals and help in performing everyday experiments.

In this post, we will talk about the 6 most common consumables used daily at the lab.

1. Gloves

No gloves mean no protection for your hands. That’s why you should always wear gloves, especially when you’re working near chemicals to avoid exposure.


In case your hand comes in contact with hazardous chemicals, remove the gloves quickly and thoroughly wash your hands before continuing work with new gloves.


Disposable gloves come in a wide variety of materials, shapes, and thickness levels. We recommend getting comfortable ones that offer maximum protection.

2. Sample Bags

With the help of sample bags, you can store and safely transport important samples. Each sample can be easily labeled by writing on the outside cover of the bag.


There’s a wide variety of sample bags to choose from. The most popular and also our recommended choice are the Whirl-Pak bags because they offer guaranteed sterility, puncture-proof closure tabs, easy identification, and a leak-proof design you can rely on.


These bags are used to safely store several things such as blood, food, dietary supplements, and more.

3. Racks 

Laboratory racks serve various purposes including storing, holding, drying, and protecting labware. Using racks, transporting large amounts of labware is made much easier as you can place multiple samples, flasks, or tubes in a single rack.


If you’re looking for a rack that can store dozens of small sample bags, tubes, or flasks, then check out the Nasco B01309WA Rack Handle.


4. Dippers


With the help of dippers, you can collect liquid samples from tanks, drums, and other hard-to-reach areas. 


Dippers come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. When choosing a dipper, you should get one that has the ideal shape and length required for the area you’re trying to reach. You also need to consider the capacity based on the number of liquid samples you need to store.

5. Scoops

Scoops are the spoons of a lab.

They’re small containers perfectly shaped and sized for transferring chemicals and solid materials from one place to another. They’re made from materials that can resist extremely high or low temperatures.

6.  Weighing Dishes

Weighing Dishes are used for storing, dispensing, and weighing all sorts of substances. Most dishes are made up of materials that can easily resist alcohol, diluted acids, and aqueous solutions.

The ideal dishes are contamination-free, biologically inert, and safe-to-use.
