Priorclave to Show New Autoclave Categories at Analytica 2022
By: Douglas Watts
Regular autoclave exhibitor on the British Gambica Pavilion at Analytica* is Priorclave – stand B1 329-3. The show provides an excellent opportunity for this dedicated manufacturer of research grade laboratory autoclaves to showcase is new steriliser groups. The approach that Priorclave has brought to the structure of the new autoclave groups makes it far easier for customers to select the best autoclave match to meet their specific sterilising requirements.
Autoclave models in the new ranges will still appeal to the same diverse customer base involved in food and drink, dairy, pharmaceutical, agriculture, education, healthcare and research establishments.
There are three core research grade laboratory autoclave groups and within each group there are several models, each offering more features and benefits than previously available standard. Visitors to the Priorclave stand B1 – 329-3 will be able to discuss the significant advantages the new model bring to a buyer.
The three research-grade laboratory autoclave groups are Base, Smart and Performance.
Priorclave’s BASE range covers “the basics”: media preparation, waste loads, and sterilizing loose instruments, open containers, and labware. These high-efficiency cylindrical-chamber front-loading tabletop autoclaves are well suited to smaller research, quality assurance, and teaching labs. Easy maintenance and light resource consumption help ensure a low lifetime cost of ownership.
The SMART range is ideal for industrial, research, and production labs and facilities with greater or more diverse needs. They adeptly handle standard tasks (e.g., media prep, waste loads, labware) but can also produce drier loads and more reliably handle complex loads that tend to trap air. Ideal for mixed waste, biological waste, pathogen-heavy materials, cloth and textile sterilization, soil and substrate preparation, wrapped instruments, and porous loads. These sterilizers feature fully customizable cycles (with expanded memory), pre-cycle and post-cycle vacuum, integrated cooling and freesteaming, and air intake filtration.
PERFORMANCE autoclaves are designed for high-throughput operation (i.e., more than four complete cycles each day) and are especially adept at challenging loads and items. These steam/ water-jacketed sterilisers are fast to heat and fast to cool. They produce drier loads more quickly and reliably and at lower cost than many comparable sterilisers, allowing even modest labs access to the highest capacity and performance steam autoclaves available.
Autoclaves that form part of the new groups include small benchtop models from 40L capacity to larger 850L capacity chamber free-standing models. Each model will incorporate the very latest version of Tactrol®, a microprocessor controller developed by Priorclave for easier programming of sterilising cycles.
Customers investing in these standard yet impressive performing sterilisers, buy into lab equipment offering a superior anti-microbial exterior finish to body panels and frames. This is a highly effective and permanent treatment for lifelong control of harmful bacteria and protection against the threat of cross contamination. The tough special epoxy finish has proven to reduce bacterial growth by up to 99.99% and is highly effective against MRSA, E.coli, Listeria, Legionella, Campylobacter, Salmonella, Pseudomonas and over fifty other species.
Priorclave is renowned for the build quality of its steam sterilisers, their durability and reliability. The exacting standards maintained at every stage of production ensures the operational longevity of every research grade laboratory autoclave that leaves the UK manufacturing centre. And all supported by first class before and after sales, technical support.
Priorclave can assure customers that the level of dedication applied to achieving what is considered the best autoclave build and program functionality will be maintained through the new autoclave ranges.
