Despite their space-saving exterior dimensions, BioClave™ Autoclave Ovens feature stainless steel chambers that are surprisingly large, accommodating a variety of liquids, media, instruments, glassware, plasticware and other common laboratory items. Both of these benchtop models include a mechanical and electrical safety interlock that prevents the door from being opened until the pressure has reached zero PSI.
With large digital displays 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.
BioClave Mini™ Autoclave Oven: The 8L BioClave™ Mini is preprogrammed to meet basic sterilization needs. Although the temperature can be selected at either 121°C or 134°C, the sterilization time is fixed. The economical BioClave™ Mini is the ideal choice wherever benchtop sterilization is required and space is limited.
BioClave 16™ Autoclave Oven: The 16L BioClave™ offers three cycle options (standard programs), which are preset for use with liquids, wrapped instruments, or unwrapped instruments/plasticware. A fourth 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 on the BioClave™ 16 are fully adjustable.
