    Commonly used in filtering processes involving vacuum filtration, often with a buchner funnel or crucible funnel. The inlet may be connected to a vacuum source, such as a water aspirator. It is also known as Suction flask.
    Classified as TC (to contain), test tubes are used to hold samples. Shown at left are several placed in a test tube rack. Commonly used to cover containers; also can be used for miscellan eous tasks
