The Nova Microcinerator is designed to sterilize metal inoculating loops and needles without using an open flame; eliminating aerosaling of micro organisms. By using infrared heat inside a ceramic tube, the Nova Microcinerator protects your laboratory technicians from dangerous gases, flames and splatter. After reaching its optimum sterilization temperature 815° C (1500°F), the loop or needle is sterilized within 5-7 seconds.
Use the heat already generated by your incinerator to dry you slides, sputums, exudates and other thick mucous fluids with no morphological distortions. It also works great for dissolving epithelium using the KOH mycology technique. This slide dryer is a safe and easy way to utilize what your incinerator is already producing.
Protect your loop handles form overheating and/or melting with our loop rest. It will fit any loop and attaches easily to all incinerators.
The heating element is protected by a perforated stainless steel cowl. Unlike other models with fixed burner assemblies; the Nova can be adjusted to five different positions in 8° increments (-8° - +32°). The ergonomic design reduces hand fatigue by allowing the user to access the burner from multiple positions.
