The MTC Bio line of bacteriological spreaders has been expanded to include four different shapes and sizes. In addition to the original L-shape, a similar T-shape version and two triangle shapes (large and small) are now available. All versions are supplied in sterile packaging, but are also autoclavable and have smooth, rounded edges to prevent unwanted cutting, scraping or gouging of agar during inoculation.
The original spreaders are ideal for spreading bacteriological cultures evenly. The shape allows the user to rotate and apply easily throughout an entire round plate or dish. They are made of ABS and have a slight upward curve at the edge to prevent dragging or scraping.
