An array of pens are available for varying uses in the lab, adapted to demanding environments such as ultra-wet and dry conditions. Ultra-fine pens are suitable for fine lines when recording results or producing graphs. Markers are often resistant to chemicals, as well as waterproof, odorless and smear-proof.
Labeling tapes can stick to a wide range of surfaces, without leaving residue and can be written on with most utensils. Autoclave tape is used to indicate plastic and glassware which has been sterilized by autoclave.
Lab notebooks are designed for easy recording of results and creation of graphs or charts; containing lined or gridded sheets of A4 or A5 size.
