5 Microbiology Lab Essentials From Pro Lab

Here at ProLab we are all about finding the solutions to your problems. If you run a microbiology lab then you know the importance of always having a well-stocked storeroom full of everything you could ever need.

That said sometimes the little things like microbiology lab essentials can get forgotten about until you need them and discover you don’t have any. So here are our 5 microbiology lab essentials from Prolab.

1. Plastic Disposable Inoculating Needles

Plastic disposable needles are a must-have in any microbiology lab. We sell packs of inoculation tools including traditional calibrated nichrome wire loops with a selection of insulated handles, sterile disposable plastic loops and spreaders and you get 50 per sleeve.

2. EnviroBeads™ Autoclave Deodorant

Another absolute essential for any lab is autoclave deodorant.

EnviroBead™ offers a convenient, easy-to-use, and economical method of neutralising odours associated with the routine autoclaving of laboratory waste. A single capsule is sufficient to neutralize the odour associated with 10 cubic feet of waste, by placing it directly in the autoclave.

It’s important to neutralize the smell and not just mask it. With EnviroBeads™ Autoclave Deodorant the soft gelatine capsule melts and releases one of three pleasant fragrances, apple, lemon or peach.

3. Pro-Loops™ Calibrated Innoculation Loops

For use when strict calibration is required, certified/calibrated loops from Pro-Lab Diagnostics are manufactured from the highest quality 80/20 nickel chromium wire and calibrated using the Evans Blue Dye Method (Cumitech 2A). Each pack of 5 loops is presented in a protective case and accompanied by the appropriate certificate of calibration.

Our Pro-Loops ™ Calibrated Innoculation Loops come in 1ul and 10ul packs of 5 and are a must-have for any microbiology lab who pride themselves on their accurate calibration.
