Inoculating Loops & Spreaders

An inoculating loop or spreader is a basic microbiological tool for interacting with cultures and samples. Loops, needles, and spreaders are invaluable for manipulating tissue cultures, including unsanitary samples like feces or urine.

There is no single, catch-all loop or spread suitable to every laboratory task. Different applications can require very different instruments, and individual technicians may prefer different brands or models. Common differentiations of loops and spreads include material (plastic or metal) and rigidity (flexible or stiff).

Growing Labs provides laboratories with a variety of loops, spreaders, and needles so that every lab can find the inoculation tool that best serves its unique application. Both inoculating loops and inoculating spreaders are available in sterilized peel packs.
