It really, REALLY depends on the kind of lab you mean. Some labs deal with blood, some with DNA, some with computers, and so on and so on. So, there's a whole lot of different equipment that can be used! In an academic lab for a school or university, there's a sampling of all sorts of equipment you'd use in a real-world setting. There's beakers and flasks of all shapes and sizes for measuring liquids, along with test tubes for reactions. They also use balances, stains, microscopes, slides (pre-mounted and plain), live specimens (such as protists) and preserved specimens (like the frogs you dissect in high school). There are incubators, autoclaves, water baths, all sorts of fun chemicals, pipettes for transferring small amounts of liquid, centrifuges, petri dishes and different kinds of agar (the gel that goes into petri dishes). And there's dissecting material, like scalpels, pins and probes. Most labs have all kinds of safety equipment depending on the safety of the chemicals used. In many commercial labs and laboratory classrooms you might find an eye wash station, fire blanket, shower, glass disposal box, gas shut-off switch, and that big poofy pillow you sop up chemical spills with. That's just a tiny, insignificant sample of standard equipment in a lab. Of course, I'm sure other people can offer many more examples than I came up with.
