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.
The Research Autoclave is designed to meet your sterilization needs while maintaining a safe, fully automatic operation. Simply load items (liquids, media, instruments, glassware, plasticware, and other research laboratory items) into the autoclave, select the desired program using the touch-screen feature, close the door, and press start.
A “Dry Only” option can be selected to add drying time at the end of the cycle. All settings are customizable to meet your needs. In addition, to record settings and transfer them to a computer, simply insert a USB drive.
