Stand-off legs improve autoclave access
Autoclave stand-off legs
Priorclave bench-top autoclaves for CAT 3 areas
The availability of stand-off legs for Priorclave's range of bench-top autoclaves brings significant advantages to designated CAT 3 application areas.
In particular, it provides easier access beneath the priorclave for cleaning and disinfection of laboratory work surfaces to prevent spread of virus and eliminate potential cross contamination.
Another benefit of investing in a Priorclave is the Biocote antimicrobial surface protection.
The first range to become available with the option of stand-off legs is the Compact C40 vacuum autoclave, a versatile wide-format unit with a 40l, front-loading chamber and incorporating pre-vacuum and post-vacuum cycles.
The combination of the two vacuum phases makes the C40 steam steriliser ideal for laboratory waste, glassware and instruments as well as porous or wrapped goods.
The pre-vacuum mode efficiently removes ambient air from the chamber and load, allowing steam to completely penetrate the product whilst the post-vacuum cycle pulls steam and condensate out of the autoclave during this drying phase, the longer the vacuum runs the cooler and dryer the load.
The overall result is a faster cycle time, making the C40 suited to applications where a higher daily throughout is required or where delays in sterilisation are of concern.
As this model is ideally suited for installation in a CAT 3 laboratory, it is fitted with an optional exhaust filtration system so that all autoclave exhaust is filtered.
In addition to the new stand-off legs, all Priorclave Compact C40 autoclaves are available with an extended range of optional features normally found only on much larger steam sterilisers.
This creates a brand that can turn its steam sterilisation capability to many business sectors including food, drink, dairy, pharmaceutical, veterinary, agricultural, education, healthcare, research establishments as well as industrial laboratories.
Brunel University has benefited from the introduction of a 350l double-door autoclave from Priorclave.
Priorclave was recently awarded a contract to supply 27, compact C40 steam sterilisers from the company’s standard product range.
Priorclave will showcase a range of front-loading steam sterilisers with Tactrol Touch at Achema 2012.
An installation of a Priorclave 450 litre autoclave within the plant research laboratory of York University has cut sterilisation costs.
Priorclave has been awarded a contract to supply a number of medium-capacity laboratory autoclaves to the Centre for Translational and Experimental Medicine at Imperial College London
