timal flame sha
Features and benefits
Rapid & precise ignition for fast loop annealing
Uniform & constant flame for perfect bottle neck sterilization
Safety cabinet qualified due to optimized air flow support
Hands free operation with foot-switch or touch free IR-sensor ignition

The greatest benefit of the LabFlame is safety. We no longer have to worry about a burner that has
been left burning or one that has an undetected gas leak. The IR start and stop solved these issues. We
also don’t have to worry about flint strikers, matches, and gas clouds forming as students attempt to light
the burners. Students are just starting to use them. It does take a little while to get the hang of it, but it is
my belief that once they are fully integrated into our lab, no one will want to go back to the manual

Annealing without Flame!
The electrical sterilization system e-Loop is most suitable for the sterilization of inoculation
loops, needles and instruments. It is ideal for laboratories and safety cabinets where the use of
gases and open flames is not permitted.
Robust and temperature-shock resistant
The sterilizing tube, which is made of wear-resistant quartz glass, reaches its optimal
temperature of 900°C (1650°F) after only a few minutes. To sterilize the inoculation loop simply
insert it into the quartz tube. After 5-7 seconds, the inoculation loop is sterilized. A spray
protector is integrated for additional safety when handling pathogenic material. Even clogging is
not an issue. Any residue remaining on the smooth surface of the quartz tube can be removed
easily. A 100% stainless steel design makes the e-Loop resistant to even the most extreme
laboratory conditions
Flexible and safe
The sterilization tube can lock itself into place, using the specially designed angular adjusting
device. The low and stable housing facilitates ergonomic operation; the unique design protects
the working surface from contamination. Exceptional passive safety feature: After prolonged
use, the residual heat display signals a hot surface of the sterilization tube in order to protect
the user from burns.

Features and benefits
No downtime required for disinfection
No risk of cross contamination with micro syringes
High precision through monitoring of all 6 zones of spreading on the plate
Direct and quick transition from validated existing outdated equipment, with pre-programmed spreading patterns

The Eddy Jet Spiral Plater is a fully programmable spiral inoculation instrument with accuracy and
reproducibility of greater than 99%. The Eddy Jet Spiral Plater uses a patented gamma-irradiated disposable
micro-syringe for each new sample, eliminating cross-contamination and the need for a vacuum source or
washing steps.

Since the samples come in contact only with the disposable low cost micro-syringe throughout the process,
there is absolutely no risk of carryover of the sample or of decontamination chemicals, such as hypochlorite.

The tips are supplied with fully traceable quality control documentation. These sterile, precise micro-syringes
are your keys to confidence that you’ll get an accurate inoculation and no contamination on every plate that you
process with the Eddy Jet Spiral Plater.

Significant savings can be made in material costs and workers’ time by using the Eddy Jet Spiral Plater. Plates
are processed in well under 1 minute; no time consuming decontamination cycle; no time consuming
preparation and replacement of decontamination chemical solutions; no time consuming maintenance of a
vacuum pumping system; no down time due to vacuum failure.

The Smart Dilutor is specifically designed for the dilution of solid, semi-solid, or paste types of microbiological samples directly into
sterile homogenizer bags.
Since these types of samples require a gravimetric type of dilution process, the Smart Dilutor has an integrated balance at the heart of
the system. The operator simply places an unknown amount of sample in a sterile bag and the unit takes an initial weight of the sample,
then the operator moves the lever and the microprocessor dispenses an amount of diluents by weight, to achieve the programmed
dilution ratio. The system constantly monitors the weight in the sample bag to achieve a highly accurate dilution result.
Once the programmed dilution ratio has been reached, the system notifies the operator that the process has finished.

The software also allows the instrument to be used as a dispensing device for a previously determined quantity of a liquid into any kind
of container.
