BioClave Benchtop Research Autoclaves

Steam sterilization of research tools and consumables is convenient and affordable with the new digital BioClave Benchtop Research Autoclaves.  With a width of under 18 in. (under 14 in. for the BioClave Mini), both models will fit comfortably on even the most crowded benchtop surfaces. However, despite this space-saving external dimensions of the Bioclave autoclaves, the stainless steel chambers are surprisingly large. They accommodate a variety of liquids, media, instruments, glassware, plasticware and other common research laboratory items and equipment. Both the BioClave Benchtop Research Autoclave and the BioClave Benchtop Research Autoclave Mini models include a mechanical and electrical safety interlock that prevents the door from being opened until the pressure has dropped to zero PSI.

Equipped with a large digital display and fully automatic operation, all segments of the cycle (fill, sterilize, exhaust and dry) commence and run to completion by simply pressing the start button on the BioClave autoclave unit. An optional thermal mini-printer is also available for providing a printed record of the sterilization parameters and a USB drive can be used to record settings and transfer them to a PC.

The BioClave Benchtop Research Autoclave Mini

The 8 liter BioClave Mini autoclave is preprogrammed to meet basic sterilization needs. The temperature can be selected at one of either 121°C or 134°C, and the sterilization time is fully adjustable to meet your needs. The economical BioClave Benchtop Research Autoclave Mini is the ideal choice wherever benchtop sterilization is required and benchtop space is limited.

The BioClave Benchtop Research Autoclave 16

The 16 liter BioClave 16 autoclave offers preset cycle options (standard programs), for use with liquids, wrapped research instruments or unwrapped instruments and/or plasticware. An additional option "Dry Only" is also available, allowing for additional drying time to be added to the end of an autoclave cycle. For special applications, requiring variations in the set cycle parameters, all of these settings on the BioClave Benchtop Research Autoclave 16 are fully adjustable to set the parameters to meet your needs.

The BioClave Benchtop Research Autoclave 28

Similar to BioClave Mini and BioClave 16, the new 28 liter model features an increased chamber size with a diameter of 32cm. With this larger internal chamber, the BioClave 28 is our only model capable of sterilizing 1 and 2 liters flasks (and bottles). Even with the increased chamber size, the unit is still relatively compact, suitable for benchtop use.

Operation is fully automatic, meaning all segments of operation (fill, sterilize, exhaust and dry) commence and run to completion by simply pressing “Start”. An optional thermal mini-printer is also 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.

Both BioClaves offer three cycle options (standard programs), which are preset for the sterilization of liquids, wrapped instruments or unwrapped instruments/plastic ware. A “Dry Only” option is also available for additional drying time to be added to the end of a cycle. For special applications, requiring variations in cycle parameters, all settings on the BioClaves are fully adjustable.
