The method of streaking out of bacteria on agar surfaces plates was devised in Robert Koch’s laboratory, but the introduction of platinum wire loops is attributed to Mazyck P. Ravenel. Although now largely superceded by nichrome, platinum is still used in some laboratories because of its faster cooling and complete resistance to oxidation and chemical degradation.
