Inoculating Loops and Needles

A wide range of premium quality, accurately sized twisted Nichrome wire loops. Nichrome wire offers all the benefits of platinum at much more reasonable cost. Accurately formed loops glide smoothly across the agar surface for evenly isolated colonies.

  • Consistent and reproducible results
  • Accurately calibrated with Evans Blue dye test
  • Calibration gauge for quality control in the lab
  • Rapid cooling

Precision manufacturing

  • Exacting manufacturing process ensures a perfectly symmetrical loop with equal dimensions, rather than an uneven oval
  • Calibration gauge checks that inner diameter remains accurate during daily use
