Fireboy: a sweet (but expensive) bunsen burner replacement
Fireboys are essentially high-tech bunsen burners. Here's the website from IBS Integra Biosciences. Here's some pro's and con's:
- 1-touch reliable flame is extremeley convenient and conserves gas.
- Safer: sensors shut the gas off if it doesn't light immediately.
- Has timer and motion sensor for specialized applications.
- Pricey ($600-$700)!
- Not very mobile for those of you who like to burn bubbles off agar plates.
