An inoculating loop has been designed for anaerobic techniques, rotating plate streaking and routine procedures. It consists of a terminal portion of platinum wire and a basal portion of stainless steel wire. A 60° angle bend 4 mm from the loop tip of the wire with mounting on a 14 cm handle gives a balanced and responsive instrument. A small section of one side of the loop is flattened to a sharp projecting edge which can cut out agar blocks and incise roll-tube agar surfaces enabling underlying colony material to be removed with ease. This inoculator has the advantages of a non - oxidizing platinum tip with the rigidity of the total wire being sufficient for microbiological procedures.
