MicroLab Compact Laboratory

Short on lab space and time? Need to integrate inquiry into your lab?


“For serious work, a computer still beats a tablet hands down.”
– Consumer Reports, December 2013

For little more than the cost of a classic Spectronic-20 that is used for one or two experiments per year, your students will quickly make and analyze almost every instrument measurement needed in general and environmental chemistry with MicroLab’s Compact Benchtop Cabinet, Model 802.  This benchtop cabinet takes about the same bench space as an open lab manual.

Students use MicroLab software to turn questions into experiments. In a 2-3 hour lab period they can design an experiment and quickly collect high quality data. Then, in the lab with the instructor participating, they analyze, discuss, and draw conclusions from their data.

The MicroLab Compact Benchtop Cabinet integrates our proven high-resolution FS-528 FASTspecTM Interface and a Dell E5400 XP Professional network-certified computer in a rugged, easily-stored package. Data system, computer, sensors, software, and compact desk cabinet with sensor storage and security cable are all included. There are no hidden costs and only one item to order. Warranty and support, including remote diagnostics, are provided by both MicroLab, Inc. and Dell.
