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. 1-touch reliable flame is extremeley convenient and conserves gas.
  2. Safer: sensors shut the gas off if it doesn't light immediately.
  3. Has timer and motion sensor for specialized applications.


  1. Pricey ($600-$700)!
  2. Not very mobile for those of you who like to burn bubbles off agar plates.
