Plastic Inoculating loops are designed to eliminate cross-contamination in quantitative microbiology applications such as sampling, urine counts, serial dilutions and bacterial inoculation. The hexagonal grip design improves control and provides smooth streaking by making it easier for the operator to orient and guide the instrument.
●Flexible handles for easier collection and inoculation
●Sterilized by Ethylene Oxide
●Easy-tear individual packaging
Q1.What’s a plastic inoculation loop used in science?
A:An inoculation loop, also called a smear loop, inoculation wand or microstreaker, is a simple tool used mainly by microbiologists to retrieve an inoculum from a culture of microorganisms. The loop is used in the cultivation of microbes on plates by transferring inoculum for streaking.
Q2.Why do you have to flame sterilize the inoculating loop before and after using?
A:What is the purpose of heat fixation for the bacterial smear? Answer: ... Sterilizing of the inoculation loop is essential in order to avoid contamination of the slide preparations and also to prevent contamination of the inoculum plate.
