BioClave™ Mini Research Autoclave Fully Automatic – just press start Rapid, complete sterilization Extremely compact Built-In water tank, does not require connection to an external water supply BioClave Mini™ Autoclave Oven: The 8 liter BioClave Mini is preprogrammed to meet basic sterilization needs. Temperature can be selected at either 121°C or 134°C, and the sterilization time is fully adjustable. The economical BioClave Mini is the ideal choice wherever benchtop sterilization is required and space is limited. Despite the space-saving exterior dimensions of the BioClaves, the stainless steel sterilization chambers are suprisingly large, accommodating a variety of liquids, medical instruments, glassware, plasticware and other common research 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 been released. With large digital displays and fully automatic operation, all segments of the sterilization cycle (fill, sterilize, exhaust and dry) commence and run to completion by simply pressing the start button. An optional thermal mini-printer is available for providing a record of sterilization parameters. In addition, a built-in USB port allows for transfer of these parameters to a computer for printing or storage of cycle data. The BioClave™ 16 Research Autoclave offers three standard cycles that are preset for the sterilization of liquids, wrapped instruments, or unwrapped instruments/plasticware. There is a fourth program option “Dry Only” which can be added at the end of the cycle. All of these cycle setting are fully adjustable on the Bioclave, so if you need to change the program parameters you have that option.
