A slight touch of the hand can contaminate source materials and render them useless, costing a significant amount of wasted time and money.

The curved handle design of the new Sterileware® Bent Handle Scoops from Bel-Art Products positions the hand further from the sample when compared to straight handle scoops. This reduces the possibility of sample contamination and exposure of hands or personal protective equipment (PPE) to hazardous substances.

“A slight touch of the hand can contaminate source materials and render them useless, costing a significant amount of wasted time and money,” according to Robert N. Petersen, Product Manager for Bel-Art Products. “The gripping area of these unique, curved handle scoops is further from the bottom of the scoop, and further away from the source, reducing contamination risks.”

“Sterileware® Bent Handle Scoops are just as strong, and have the same amount of rigidity as straight handle scoops made of polystyrene,” Petersen added.

Available in 60ml (2oz) and 125ml (4oz) sizes, these sterile scoops are made of FDA grade polystyrene and are safe for food, drug and cosmetic contact. They are also individually packaged and ready for one time use and disposal, come with a Certificate of Sterilization, and are lot stamped for accurate tracing.

The 60ml (2oz) Sterileware® Bent Handle Scoops, catalog no. H36902-2006, have a suggested list price of $26.25 for a pack of 10. Suggested list price for a pack of 10 of the 125ml (4oz) scoops, catalog no. H36904-2006, is $28.35.
