The BactiZapper™ has an asbestos-free core element that uses infrared heating to produce 815°C (1500°F). It completely sterilizes microorganisms in 5-7seconds. The BactiZapper uses well-proven technology to provide instant sterilization of platinum inoculating loops, needles, glass tube/pipette mouths and various metal & borosilicate glass instruments, commonly used in microbiology research.

Aperture Cleaning: The BactiZapper can also be used for “flaming” apertures, allowing them for re-use. For more information on the procedure for this application, see the Application Note to the right.

The ceramic heating element is safely enclosed in a perforated stainless steel guard chamber, protecting users from accidental contact with the extreme temperatures of the core area. It is extremely compact, convenient and can be used in anaerobic and aerobic chambers.

  • Complete infrared sterilization in 5-7 sec.
  • Safe, convenient and no splatter
  • Ideal for platinum loops, needles and tube mouths

The optional Loop Holder Attachment can be used to insert small items into the BactiZapper for sterilization.

The optional Slide Dryer Attachment enables the system to dry up to three standard slides using the radiating heat from the BactiZapper.

New heating elements are available.
