[Histonet] Old Style Bacti-Cinerator Element

From:"David Haagsma"


You need to protect those fingers. We still have a few (6) of the older
model (model II and III) heating elements available at MarketLab.
(ML0633) Just a little recent history on the Bacti-Cinerator - It was a
Sherwood/Monoject item which was owned by Tyco Healthcare. Tyco has been
selling off a lot of their healthcare products including the line of
Bacti-Cinerators. They are now made by McCormick. In the transition,
there have been supply problems and price increases.

If you're feeling lucky, there are some new in box units available at
Eglin AFB on the military surplus auction site:
There are deals on there sometimes, they have sold off a pallet of Leica
microtomes for $850.00 a piece, embedding centers and other items of
interest for histology labs.

Hello Histoneteurs,
I work with a great Histo tech who needs to be able to sterilize forceps
in his old Bacti-Cinerator. The newer models have a ceramic collar that
requires he get his forceps in deep to get them heated properly, which
is proving a bit rough on his fingertips. The older type of element
heated pretty much right up to the front of the unit, and his has gasped
out its last. Do any of you have an old element (it's pretty wide--about
5cm, compared to the new elements) you'd like to sell, or do you have a
source for them to which you could direct moi? Our tech plays jazz sax,
and I hate to see him give up a promising career, simply because he has
burned fingers... Thanks very much for your help!
