The Astral Inoculation System eliminates the metal or wire loop flaming step and the hazards of spattering, cross contamination, and the risk of infectious pathogens caused as a result of aerosols. Eliminate the hazards of open flame. All Astral individual needles or loops may be quickly extracted from the sterilized rack by using the Astral handle. The handle may be repeatedly autoclaved.
During manufacturing, Astral Loops are inserted into racks which have 96 individual tubular chambers. When the 96 chambers are filled with the Astral Loops, they are then hermetically sealed with a thin membrane. A dust cover is placed over this 96 chamber rack, heat shrunk and sterilized by radiation. This ensures that each loop remains sterile, even after the package is open.
Every case of 10 racks of 96 loops is supplied with an astral handle.
