In 2016, the University of Cambridge released a tender to replace two BMM Weston autoclaves that took up a large amount of space in two separate rooms. In 2017, Triple Red were awarded the contract for the removal of these autoclaves and to replace them with two state-of-the-art Systec HX-540 autoclaves in the space where just one autoclave occupied previously.
The complete range of vertical and horizontal chamber Systec autoclaves offer world leading manufacturing quality and performance. Their unique modular design makes it possible to provide the optimal configuration for each laboratory sterilising application. Read how Systec Autoclaves are designed to be as energy efficient as possible to pass the benefits on to the user.
Autoclaves use saturated steam to heat glassware, solutions or surgical instruments in order to sterilise them. Feed water must be free from impurities in order to, not only avoid staining or corroding any items being autoclaved – impairing the sterilisation process, but to ensure the performance of the autoclave itself is not affected. Five steam feed water contaminants have been identified that are known to have a harmful effect on the autoclaving process.
Choosing an autoclave may not be as simple as it seems as there are a number of factors to take into consideration. We have identified 4 essential factors to consider when selecting the most suitable autoclave for your laboratory. Read more here.
Our comprehensive range of Systec Autoclaves have up to 50% shorter heat up times as traditional autoclaves. Read more here.
When autoclaving solids, it’s important to remove all air from the products to be sterilised to ensure precise, reproducible and validatable sterilisation.
