Also known as inoculating loops and needles, use cell transfer loops and needles to collect and transfer samples in clinical microbiology applications. They are available in a range of colors for color-coding tools to avoid cross-contamination.
Needles for Single Colonies
Pick up a single colony from a specimen with these inoculating needles. They can pick up a smaller sample size than inoculating loops and are available in a range of sizes.
Loops for Larger Samples
Use an inoculating loop to transfer cells or organisms from a media plate onto a slide. Their loop-shaped head can pick up a larger sample than a needle and are available in a range of sizes.
