Bunsen Burners

Hurst Scientific is a supplier of essential scientific and surgical equipment in Australia. We provide general laboratory supplies including Bunsen burners and other products used in microbiology laboratories.

Bunsen burners are used to sterilise pieces of equipment by producing a single open gas flame. The flame creates an updraft, which reduces the risk of contamination from bacteria.

In a microbiology laboratory, Bunsen burners are used for aseptic techniques, such as sterilising inoculating loops. Sterilising the loop by heating it in the blue flame of the Bunsen burner will assist in the destruction of bacteria.

Another commonly used sterilisation process is flaming the necks of bottles and test tubes. This can be done by passing the neck through the hot flame of the Bunsen burners to destroy microorganisms that may contaminate the culture.

Working close to the flame provided by Bunsen burners is an efficient way to create as much of a sterile working environment as possible.

At Hurst Scientific, we stock Bunsen burners manufactured in Australia by Met App. Peruse our website for a list of our available Bunsen burners or contact us directly for more information.
