Ideal Autoclaves for CROs (Contract Research Organizations/Clinical Research Organizations)
The increasing pace of scientific discovery—and increasing demand to quickly apply those abstract discoveries to solving real-world problems—has put ever more pressure on biotech companies and researchers to get more […]
Making Culture Media Sterilization Easy
A frequent, high-volume, essential task like culture media sterilization should be simple, automated, and efficient. It happens so often, and so many other systems and processes rely on it. If […]
How to Sterilize Ashes without Fire: Aquamation “Water Cremation” Sterilization
If you’ve ever wondered how to sterilize ashes without flame cremation, alkaline hydrolysis is increasingly the answer. Also called “aquamation” (as in “water-cremation”) this is an innovative approach to the […]

Now Is Not the Time to Waste Water
These last 22-years have been the driest since the year 800, according to a new study. Not only that, but “the 21st century has been substantially drier than the previous […]
Medical Device Lifecycle Testing: More is Better
Life-saving surgeries rely, more and more often, on increasingly complex surgical tools. Meanwhile, the global climate crisis increasingly demands we rely less on single-use surgical instruments and medical supplies. This […]
Using Steam Autoclaves for Medical Device Accelerated Aging
Autoclaves play an important role in product development and testing. They’re play a key role in medical device accelerated aging, where can simulate years of wear-and-tear or exposure to harsh […]
Always Use Autoclave Trays!
Spend long enough in a lab and eventually even your most useful and trusted equipment may seem to betray you. But it’s not the autoclave to blame! It could be […]
