Prepare and Sterilise
Is it taking you too long to prepare your media? Automate your media preparation, production, and sterilisation in one step withthe Systec Media preparation and dispensing system.

  • Reduces cross contamination, improves sterility, and keeps the process simple, reproducible and validatable to UKAS accreditation if required
  • Comprehensive range to suit your exact needs from a compact 10L to the high volume 120L
  • Option to link to a Systec Mediafill automatic plate pouring unit for a completely automated and sterile walk-away system

Save time with ISO compliant steam sterilising. Systec Autoclaves feature the latest technological advances and are suited to all laboratory applications.

  • Flexible PT100 temperature sensor as standard and calculation of Fo values provides you with confidence that your results are accurate, reproducible and validatable
  • Unique Quick Cooling system reduces cooling times by up to 90% when autoclaving media, liquids, solids, waste and biologically hazardous materials
  • Systec are the first autoclave manufacturer to comply with ISO Environmental Management Systems

Analyse
Personnel, product and environmental protection with Class 2 Biological Safety Cabinets. NuAire Cabinets provide protection by using laminar air flow and HEPA filtration. The airflow is 30% exhausted and 70% recirculated, ensuring optimum control over product quality while reducing the potential for exposure.

  • All stainless steel, easy to keep clean and sterilise
  • Comfortable and spacious to work at with a 10 inch opening and armrest support
  • Certified to BS EN 12469:2000 Performance Criteria for Biological Safety Cabinets

Decontaminate
Validate your autoclave decontamination cycles. Laboratory waste and hazardous waste needs to be sterilised before it can be disposed of safely. These can present a challenge for some autoclaves as it is difficult for steam to penetrate porous materials and the load must be contained. Systec autoclaves are customisable to ensure complete and safe decontamination of your load for accurate reproducible and validatable results.

  • Fractionated pre-vacuum used in combination with steam generator removes 100% of air, allowing complete steam penetration
  • Unique air exhaust filter prevents release of hazardous biological substances into the atmosphere during pre-vacuum, protecting both user and environment
  • PT100 temperature sensor monitors air exhaust filtration system and is steam sterilised with each autoclave cycle
  • Condensate is inactivated by steam injection ensuring condense sterility prior to draining

Avidity Science Laboratory Water Systems to suit ALL applications
It is critical that Microbiology culture media for the food and beverage industry is prepared in line with the BS EN ISO 11133:2014+A2:2020 standard, using purified water which is free from substances likely to inhibit or influence the growth of microorganisms. Water conductivity should be <25 μS/cm, ideally <5 μS/cm, with microbial contamination <103 CFU/mL, ideally <102 CFU/mL. Avidity Science manufactures a range of Laboratory Water Systems to help you meet these required standards.
