New Autoclave Ranges at Medica 2022

On the 14th November 2022 British laboratory autoclave manufacturer Priorclave takes its place on the Gambica UK Pavilion at the Medica exhibition in Dusseldorf – 14 – 17 November 2022. It will be the third international exhibition in four weeks that Priorclave has attended, highlighting its new sterilizer product ranges.

At Medica on stand 1F03 – 2, visitors to the Priorclave stand will have the opportunity to gain an in-depth knowledge on why the new ranges have been introduced. And how they can simplify their search for a modern autoclave that incorporates many features as standard.

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 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.

All previous models, from 40L benchtop to the larger 700L free-standing designs have been upgraded to comply with the new standards set in the new categories.  Every Priorclave autoclave comes as standard with the advanced Tactrol®3 fully programmable control system.

The Priorclave autoclave build programme incorporates panels and frames coated in an anti-bacteria agent. This is a highly effective and a permanent treatment for lifelong control of harmful bacteria and protection against the threat of cross contamination. This tough special epoxy finish is 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.

The Priorclave brand of research grade autoclaves are highly efficient and recognised for their energy saving operational costs.  Plus, with dedicated technical support pre and post sales, customers rest easy in the knowledge that their autoclave will perform reliably for many years.
