Sometimes the test tube can be placed on the test tube rack to observe the inside reaction phenomenon. There are two kinds of tube holders, one is with holes, and the other is cylindrical objects with corresponding holes. The former one can let the test tube keep upright and continue to be observed the reaction in the experiments. The latter one allows the test tubes to be placed upside down for drying.
