The image database collects images of scientific instruments and
laboratory equipment taken from various sources like journals, books and
catalogues. You can search the original figure captions (including their
translations) and author, title, and year of the source. The source page for
any instrument is available from the result page. At this time 21088 images
are available (view all).
For a selection of instruments we provide a more detailed data sheet
with information on related people, sources, sites, etc. Furthermore these
instruments are organized in categories.
