    What People Are Saying

    Handle works for both a loop or needle

  • Good handle that will work for both a loop and needle. Would be nice if it came with a spare loop, but you can make your own with thin wire.
    Good quality

  • This is a good quality loop at a decent price. If taken care of properly it will certainly last a long time. It is great for grabbing bacteria and other microbes from your agar dishes.
    Great for bacteria usage!

  • My daughter was able to use this for her bacteria study. Heats quickly and cools quickly to grab bacteria from Petri dishes. Just wish you could buy more needles.

      Inoculating needle, looped end

      This inoculating needle has a metal handle with nichrome wire loop to transfer bacteria from a culture to a petri dish.

      Sterilize the loop between transfers using a flame and heating the loop until it glows. Allow the loop to cool before inserting in the bacteria culture or the heat will kill the bacteria being transferred.

      Assembly: The straight piece of wire inserts into the end of the handle, and the handle’s screw-tip loosens and tightens the wire inside the handle. You may find it best to insert the wire slightly off-center. Make sure the handle is fully tightened around the wire before use.
