Medical General Chemistry I Laboratory
CHEM 1010L: Online General Chemistry I Lab
The laboratories that accompany Online Medical General Chemistry I are similar to those performed by students in a laboratory setting on any college or university campus, with one major exception. The experiments performed by online students will take place in their homes using LabPaq’s purchased through Hands-on-Labs, Inc.
The Medical General Chemistry I Lab and all UNE distance laboratories have been made possible by a nationwide effort over the last 40 years to move away from toxic substances and into microchemistry. Microchemistry efforts have also resulted in safer laboratories that produce less pollution.
The laboratories are appropriate for introductory-level, college General Chemistry I courses for pre-health science majors at challenging institutions. An emphasis is placed on understanding the concept of the laboratories and the scientific method, since today’s healthcare professionals are expected to have a general understanding of how science and the scientific method contribute to their profession.
The lab kit includes an introduction to each laboratory, relating the lab content to the corresponding course lecture. These labs are a good fit for pre-medical, dental, PA, DPT, pharmacy and nutrition students.
If you need the corresponding Lecture
General Chemistry I is designed for the student to take the lecture and lab concurrently in order to earn four credits. For the full four credits, you must register for both CHEM1010 and CHEM1010L. For students who only need a specific portion of General Chemistry I, however, you have the option to take lecture only (CHEM1010 three credits) or lab only (CHEM1010L one credit).
Important: When selecting lecture and lab within FlexReg, please be sure that the section numbers match. In the event that there is no matching lab number, please select a different lecture, or contact an enrollment specialist.

It is mandatory for students enrolled in lab to order a lab kit.
The kit must be purchased directly through Hands-on Lab and cannot be purchased secondhand or from another vendor as the unique kit code is vital and is assigned to each student at the time of purchase.

- Review the HOL Return and Refund Policy
Do not start any experiments until you read the instructions within the individual course modules. Please do not order the LabPaq until you are certain that you will stick with the course. If you decide to return your LabPaq you will have to pay the return shipping charge plus a restocking fee.
The Lab Paq needs to be purchased separately and is not part of your registration fee.
A list of laboratory experiments
- Laboratory Techniques & Measurements and Math Practice Lab

What happens if a student messes up an experiment?
Messing up an experiment is part of the learning process and as such should be noted. LabPaqs generally contain enough chemicals and supplies to perform each experiment twice. If a student completely blows an experiment and uses up all related supplies, replacement supplies can be ordered from Hands-On Labs, the maker of LabPaqs.
How are laboratories graded?
Each lab has a corresponding 10-question quiz, and there is a laboratory final exam at the culmination of the course. All quizzes and the final exam are completed online.
