An inoculating loop, also called a smear loop, inoculation wand or microstreaker are hand-held devices for inoculating plated or tubed growth media with microorganisms such as bacteria or yeasts prior to incubation, multiplication, and growth.

The inoculum is typically stabbed into, or streaked into, solid agar-based media, or simply dispersed into liquid media.

Inoculating loops are also useful for sampling and transferring small quantities of microorganism prior to further analysis, microscopic examination, or serial dilution.
