    Any ideas what it is in English, please? All I know is it's chemistry lab equipment.

    Thanks a lot!

    2. f. Utensilio que se utiliza en los laboratorios para mantener verticales y ordenados los tubos de ensayo.

    En este caso, yo diría que el equivalente en inglés sería 'test tube rack'
