What to Look for When Purchasing a Tabletop Autoclave

Purchasing a tabletop autoclave is not complication, however, there should be some forethought before making the purchase. You, your office staff, and your patients are going to be relying on the efficiency of your autoclave for the safety of everyone involved. In today’s blog we are going to give you some ideas on what to look for when you are ready to make the purchase. 

Autoclave Partner 

First look at who you are going to buy from. Do they have a lot of experience? Do they service the autoclaves? Do they install them? Do they troubleshoot them? Do they train your staff? How far is their office from you? A great relationship with your autoclave partner should come first, so you should seek out an outfit with an excellent reputation and long history. 


Next, consider the brands of autoclaves available, and pick one that has been in the business for a long time. You will occasionally need parts or service or advice, and you will be way ahead if you choose a brand with a big history like Tuttnauer. Now is not a good time to experiment with a brand-new entry in the autoclave market. 


One you have decided on your autoclave partner or dealer, and the brand you want, then you can start ironing out the specs that you need. This is mainly the size and shape. Do you need an autoclave that will print out a its work cycles? Do you need room inside for certain specific tools? This is something to be hammered out with your dealer. 

Once you know that you have a reliable dealer, a top-notch brand, and the exact specs that you need, you are going to be a lot happier with your purchase.
