The Bacti-Cinerator™ IV conveniently sterilizes loops, needles, and culture tube mouths utilizing infrared heat produced by a ceramic core element. The ceramic element contains no asbestos and ensures maximum sterility without splatter across the work surface area. Complete sterilization occurs within 5 to 7 seconds at optimum sterilizing temperature of 1,500° F (815.6° C). The small footprint makes the Bacti-Cinerator™ IV an ideal instrument for anaerobic and aerobic chambers alike. An indicator light indicates that the unit is in operation, and the weighted cast aluminum stand includes space to store 6 inoculation loop handles. This sterilizer is perfect for use in hoods and anaerobic chambers, but is not intended for use with scalpels, forceps, or sharp instruments. UL listed. 120-VAC. Size 10" L x 4 1/2" W x 12" H.
