Choosing the Right Brand of Autoclave

There are many brands of autoclaves, and choosing the right autoclave for your business is a big decision. Large autoclaves are expensive, but they are also indispensable the sterilization of instruments and materials in a medical, research, or laboratory environment. 

Autoclaves come in all shapes and sizes with a variety or automatic and/or manual controls. What they have in common is a fixed water intake line, and the use of heat, water, and pressure to sterilize within a closed chamber. 

In this blog article we are going to talk about how to choose your autoclave. 


Because autoclaves require ongoing testing and maintenance, it’s very important to choose a brand that has a long history of making quality products. Your business is going to rely heavily on the autoclave, so you don’t want to make a rash buying decision. 


Your relationship with your dealer will prove very important, as the dealer will be your contact if you have any questions about your autoclave. Your dealer will be servicing the autoclave, so you need to discuss which brands your dealer carries and also feels comfortable servicing.
