Wink Micro-incinerator



Is there anyone using microincinerator in their microbiology laboratories? I'm curious if it is necessary or not because according to Turkish Health Ministry, it should be used instead of Bunsen burner at every laboratory.
If anyone using, could you please compare Bunsen burner and microincinerator and also possible benefits of microincinerator?

Microincinerators are generally preferred in biohazard safety cabinets as they do not disrupt the airflow produced by said cabinets to maintain the "sterile" controlled environment. Bunsen burners are for general use on open benches or laminar flow hoods. I wouldn't use it for long hours in a biohazard safety cabinet but I do use it for other purposes, such as preparing slides and flaming glass rods with ethanol.

I would say it depends on your purpose and what you intend to do because if you intend to use it just for heat sterilization of loops, then, a microincinerator is more than enough.
