Carolina® Infrared Bacteria Sterilizer

Product Highlights
  • No open flame
  • Sterilize instruments in 5 to 7 seconds
(in stock)


Sterilize instruments in just 5 to 7 seconds—without an open flame and the risk of infectious splatter and contamination. The Carolina® Infrared Bacteria Sterilizer uses an asbestos-free ceramic core heater element to provide 1,500° F (815° C) of infrared heat. It sterilizes platinum and nichrome loops, needles, glass tubes, pipet mouths, and many other instruments. Compact and convenient, the Carolina® Infrared Bacteria Sterilizer is a great choice for use in anaerobic and aerobic chambers. Its heater element is replaceable and safely enclosed to protect users from accidental contact. A handy "standby" temperature setting extends the element's usable life. Optional accessories include a Loop Holder Attachment (item #703401) that keeps loop handles from overheating and melting during sterilization, and a Slide Dryer Attachment (item #703402) for drying up to 3 slides quickly and safely. A Replacement Heater Element, 115 V (item #703419), is also available.
