B1000 Micro-Sterilizers for sterilizing inoculation needles?
    #25856603 - 03/06/19 06:52 PM (13 days, 11 hours ago)

Hello there!

I recently went to a live auction where a local university was liquidating some random lab equipment. I happened to get a small collection of Benchmark B1000 Micro-Sterilizers (see image).

Two questions:

1) I've heard that these things can be used to sterilize needles for substrate inoculation (indoor mushroom growing). Is this true?
2) Assuming yes, could anyone else on here use one of these things? I have 5 of them, and really only need one.

What does the internal temp reach? Is it ceramic that heats up?

The idea would be to just stick your needle in this machine before putting it into a jar or dish?

Hard to do a needle i would imagine. The luer lock fitting is plastic. Scalpel would be fine but a torch is quicker. I really see no point to them especially for the cost.

They look useful for doing agar work. That way you don't have to touch a bunch of extra stuff like my torch. I would get one depending on the price. Everywhere I've seen them they are stupid expensive though, a torch is like $15 at most lol.
