What Types of Small Capacity Autoclaves for Healthcare do we Provide?

We provide an extensive range of solutions including our portfolio of small capacity healthcare autoclaves.

Together with Steelco, we offer a comprehensive range of small capacity autoclaves designed to meet the needs of any healthcare facility.

Our small range is designed for the processing of 1 or 2 STU per cycle with each model being characterised by design, strength and safety to offer the perfect solution for small facilities.

The process speed and low media consumption of these autoclaves also make them ideal machines for “fast track” sterile processes in large central sterilisation supply departments.

We also offer compact benchtop autoclaves, the VS 1 TT, which features a single, manual door horizontal sliding left with a capacity of 1 STU.

In 2020 Sychem was awarded the NHS framework for Pathology and Point of Care Testing, Associated Equipment, Instruments, Consumables, Accessories, and Managed Services. This enables us to provide pathology laboratories with a range of decontamination equipment including pathology autoclaves.
