Benchtop Autoclaves Give a Clean Sweep

The complete range of Priorclave benchtop laboratory autoclaves are now available with short stand-off legs to provide easy access beneath the steam steriliser for much easier cleaning and disinfection of laboratory work surfaces. It makes the benchtop autoclave range an ideal choice for organisations either planning or operating a Cat3 laboratory and limited on space.

The new versatile front loading design is available from the manufacturer Priorclave with sterilising chambers up to 60 litres capacity (350mm diameter), offers flexibility for both single or multi programs and a choice of standard or highly efficient vacuum operation. Benchtop autoclaves are the smallest in the Priorclave range and should appeal to laboratories with low volume requirements, limited space whilst allowing them to enjoy a level of settings and operating flexibility usually reserved for larger autoclaves.

The many design benefits of this feature-packed range is available at an affordable price that will be appreciated by start-up labs on limited budget as well as the more established operations. The smallest model, the C40 autoclaves weighs in at just 70kg and as with all models, it is extremely easy to install powered from a standard single phase supply.

Introduction of the bench-top autoclave range with stand-off legs brings significant advantages to designated CAT 3 application areas providing much easier access beneath the steriliser for cleaning to prevent spread of virus and eliminate potential cross contamination. Another added benefit of investing in a Priorclave manufactured autoclave is the anti-microbial surface protection that prevents cross contamination.

All Stand-Off Compact models have access to an extended range of options and accessories that enable Priorclave to deliver a laboratory autoclave matched to specific requirements. 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.
