sterilizing wasteMany people do not think about using an autoclave for sterilizing waste. An autoclave can be used to sterilize hazardous waste so that it can be thrown out with the normal garbage. Since hazardous waste disposal is very expensive, waste sterilization is a great way to save money.

If you haven’t been using an autoclave to sterilize hazardous waste, it’s not too late to start. So, which autoclave is best for sterilizing waste? (more…)

history of sterilization equipmentSteam sterilization is a popular choice for a reason. It is a dependable, non-toxic, and affordable solution that will meet your sterilization needs. However, according to the CDC, steam sterilization can have deleterious effects on some materials. In our article “Why You Need to Contact a Sterilizer Equipment Expert“, we proved to you that we are the premier sterilizer equipment experts. In this article, we will answer the question, “Should I use a steam sterilizer?” (more…)

A door of an autoclave recently (October 31st 2013) blew off the hinges, and killed a woman who wasn’t too far from the autoclave. This accident didn’t happen in a dental, medical, veterinary setting, but it could easily happen.  Please make sure you maintain your autoclave regularly. I will post later all of the sterilizer manufacturers recommendations as to how often the sterilizer each one of their sterilizer needs to be checked.

Thumb-ChuckIf you work in the medical, dental, veterinary, or podiatry field, there’s a good chance that you need a sterilizer. We know that not just any sterilizer will do, so contact a sterilizer equipment expert to get free information about autoclaves and sterilizers.

At Sterilizers.com, we have the facts you need to know about the best sterilization manufacturers and equipment. We’re your sterilizer equipment experts, and we’re ready to prove it to you. (more…)

If the answer is yes, be aware.
Be aware of the fact that the majority of the autoclaves that you will find have been around for a while, and most likely, the chamber might cracked.

It takes time for these chambers to develop a crack.  But when they do, the process from the time it begins to loose pressure until the time you are ready to throw the towel from frustration can be months or even a year or two, but the chamber eventually will need to be replaced.

If you would like to know more what needs to be done to avoid any issue now, and not to spend lots of money, call me for free consultation.  Or better yet, fill out this form, and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

I have been reading some very interesting articles in Pharmaceutical Technology regarding new sterilizers.

They all deal with a similar subject of sterilization methods and validation.

While in most cases the traditional methods of steam or dry heat sterilization work well, there are circumstances where these or even EO sterilization fails to meet the requirements.

Materials may be degraded or they are too sensitive to be exposed to moisture.

With this thought in mind there seems to be a few new methods on the horizon for solving the current issues.

These include but are not limited to:

  • Vapor-phase hydrogen peroxide
  • Nitrogen dioxide gas
  • Chlorine dioxide gas
  • Carbon dioxide

All four are explained in detail in the article i have attached for reference.

What is important is that we continue to search for new methods to sterilize safely and effectively and have a method to prove the process.
