What Types of Life Science Autoclaves do we Provide?

In an exclusive UK partnership with Steelco, we provide a large range of life science autoclaves.

Together with Steelco, we provide a diverse portfolio of small, medium and bulk-capacity steam sterilisers for use in biomedical and research facilities.

Our portfolio ranges from compact 110 litre capacity autoclaves to bulk capacity 9070 litre biomedical autoclaves.

All of our VS L autoclaves are extremely versatile and can be configured with either single or double doors for pass-through installation. Customers can also choose between sliding or hinged door designs, with a left or right-aligned technical area.

Constructed with an AISI 316L stainless steel chamber, our steam sterilisers ensure optimal heat transfer and feature a full jacket system for even heat distribution.

What Types of Life Science Autoclaves Do We Provide?

When choosing a Steelco autoclave for life science, there are plenty of factors for you to consider.

What type do you require?

Do you require a small, medium or large-capacity steam steriliser, or a combination—if you are unsure, speak to our team. Chamber volumes range from 110-litres to 9070-litres.

What do you need to sterilise?

Consider your sterilisation needs. Do you require your biomedical autoclave for clean cage purposes, CAT3 waste, liquids or other needs?

What are your steam requirements?

Have a think about how you are going to generate the steam. Do you have Steam already or will you need the autoclave to generate its own?
