The Bunsen Burner has been an essential part of science laboratories since the middle of the 19th century.

A Bunsen burner, named after Robert Bunsen, is a common piece of laboratory equipment that produces a single open gas flame, which is used for heating, sterilization, and combustion. The gas can be natural gas or a liquefied petroleum gas, such as propane, butane, or a mixture of both.

Robert Bunsen was born on this day in 1811.
