Biology field is a very diverse area, which needs exclusive and determined tools in order to accomplish any goals. Kalstein products offers you another great and useful tool. In this case, we are referring to cell spreaders. This is a common toolto spread cells and bacteria on a plate or a petri-dish. Microbiologists have to be extremely careful when teasing out the material from a specimen in order to prepare a culture for clinical tests or diagnosis. Spreaders come in different shapes. We are offering you the L-shaped cell spreaders.
L-shaped cell spreaders
Researchers use this tool to drop cells or bacteria, and without applying too much pressure, they can swirl the spreader around on the dish to distribute evenly the cells or bacteria. They are ideal for spreading bacterial cultures. In this case, the L-shape allows the application on the entire Petri dish or plate surface. One of the great features is that they have a slight upward return that reduces the risk of damaging agar sample. Its unique shape makes spreading a very easy process.
The materials these are high impact ABS L-shaped cell spreaders, which is a terpolymer made by polymerizing styrene and acrylonitrile in the presence of polybutadiene. This important feature eliminates the need for flaming or autoclaving before their use.
They come in three presentations. The first one is 1 per peel bag. The second one is 5 per peel bag and 100 bags per box. Moreover, the third one is 10 per peel bag and 50 bags per box. The three presentations are blue and all of them have gone through the Ethylene Oxide Sterilization process.
- L-shaped cell spreaders are ideal for spreading bacterial cultures evenly.
- The L-shape allows application on the entire Petri dish or plate surface.
- Smooth spreading surface with slight upward return reduces the risk of damaging agar sample.
- Spreaders are manufactured of high impact ABS, eliminating the need for flaming or autoclaving.
