What are scientific instruments (instruments) called?

Scientific instruments are those devices which facilitate or facilitate or facilitate the work of any science. With the development of civilization, scientific progress is taking place all over the world. In many developed countries, there has been a situation of mutual competition for scientific progress and inventions. Intensive research and exploration programs are being conducted by many countries in the field of science. In the matter of research, not only the Asian countries with the Soviet Union, but also the participation of the US and European countries has been there.
