Getting To Know The Appliance Tool Microbiology Laboratory
Biosafety training for microbiology and biosafety professionals soon be held in Baltimore, before we should follow more about the practice, we need more detail to know what tools are used in microbiology. Prior to work or doing practical work in the microbiology laboratory helps us to first recognize instruments Microbiology Laboratory instruments and their functions. As one analyst is very important to know what equipment we would need time to work or practice in the laboratory. Suppose, when we’re to analysis (with reference to a particular method) then we must recognize whatever tools we need to do to while doing our analysis does not stop half way through, because the tools we need nothing, if it happens it like it’s a pity once our time and energy is wasted.
- Ose / Needles inoculum (inoculating loop)
Serves to move the needle inoculum culture to be planted / developed keen on new media. Inoculum needles are generally through of nichrome or platinum wire that can glowed when exposed to heat. The shape of the needle tip can be circular (loop) and called ose or inoculating loop / loop transfer, and the shape of a straight-called inoculating needle / Transfer needle. Inoculating loop suitable for doing streak on the surface so that, while inoculating needle suitable for inoculation in order to erect prick (stab inoculating).
- Micropipette (Micropippete)
Micropipette is a tool to move the fluid volume is quite small, usually less than 1000 mL. Many choices in the micropipette capacity, for example, a micropipette to set the volume of uptake (adjustable volume pipette) between 1μl to 20 mL, or micropipette can not set the volume, only one option available volume (fixed volume pipette) eg 5 mL micropipette. In use, mukropipet need a tip.
- The test tube (Reaction Tube / Test Tube)
In microbiology, test tubes used for biochemical tests and grow microbes. Reaction tubes can be filled solid or liquid media. Close the test tube be able to be strand, plastic lid or aluminum foil. Solid medium is inserted into a test tube can be arranged into two forms according to function, namely the media in order to erect (deep tube so) and so lopsided (slants order). To make the slopes, the slope of the media to note about that is the surface area in contact with air is not too narrow or too wide and avoid media distance is too close to the mouth of the tube because it can increase the risk of contamination. For reasons of efficiency, media added ranged 10-12 ml per tube.
