The Bacti-Cinerator IV sterilizes microorganisms utilizing infrared heat produced by a ceramic core element. The ceramic element contains no asbestos and ensures maximum sterility without spatter across the work area. Complete sterilization occurs within 5 to 7 seconds at optimum sterlizing temperature of 1500° F (815.6°C). The small footprint makes the Bacti-Cinerator an ideal instrument for anaerobic and aerobic chambers alike. Sterilizes loops and needles.
