Laboratory Autoclave (28L)

Autoclaves use high-pressure steam to kill bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms and are commonly used in scientific research, medical facilities, and other settings where sterile conditions are required.

Laboratory autoclaves consist of a chamber that is heated by steam, a pressure gauge, and a timer. To use the autoclave, the materials to be sterilized are placed in the chamber and the chamber is sealed. The autoclave is then heated to a high temperature, typically 121-134°C, and the pressure is increased to create steam. The steam is circulated throughout the chamber to sterilize the materials, and the process is typically completed in 20-30 minutes.

Laboratory autoclaves are an essential tool for maintaining sterile conditions in a laboratory setting and are widely used in a variety of scientific and medical research and diagnostic applications.

ConductScience offers Autoclaves and more Benchtop Equipment for your lab.


With a large digital LCD display and fully automatic operation, all segments of the cycle (fill, sterilize, exhaust and dry) commence and run to completion by simply pressing the start button. An optional thermal mini-printer is also available for providing a record of sterilization parameters and a USB drive can be used to record settings and transfer them to a PC. The 8 liter BioClave Mini is preprogrammed to meet basic sterilization needs. Temperature can be selected at either 121°C or 134°C, and the sterilization time is fully adjustable. The economical BioClave Mini is the ideal choice wherever benchtop sterilization is required and space is limited.

BioClave 28L offers preset cycle options (standard programs), for use with liquids, wrapped research instruments or unwrapped instruments/plasticware. An additional option “Dry Only” is also available for additional drying time to be added to the end of a cycle. For special applications, requiring variations in cycle parameters, all settings are fully adjustable. The Bioclave 28L features an increased chamber size with a diameter of 32cm. With this larger internal chamber, the BioClave 28 is our only model capable of sterilizing 1 and 2 liters flasks (and bottles). Despite the increased chamber size, the unit is still relatively compact and suitable for benchtop use.
