MICROLOOP® Nichrome Wire Loops

MWE’s MICROLOOPS® (Nichrome Wire Loops) are a range of inoculating loops that have been designed and moulded with precision, to ensure you can rely on them for accurate volumetric technique every time.

MWE’s MICROLOOPS® are calibrated, ensure better wetting, have precise moulded smooth edges, are medical devices, and validated to ISO standards. We offer a range of MICROLOOPS® and needles.

Accurately sized, twisted Nichrome 5 wire loops, offer all the benefits of platinum, without the costs. These are available in 6 volumetric sizes. Nichrome 5 is the finest for repeated heating. It is made up of 80% Nickel and 20% Chromium. It gives outstanding performance at temperatures up to 1200ºC.

Calibrated Nichrome MICROLOOPS® are manufactured with the same precision as Nichrome 5 standard MICROLOOPS®. These are calibrated and packed individually. Calibrated loops are individually measured to ensure they meet specification. A calibration certificate is provided.
