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…)

The exhaust condenser is used for condensing exhausted steam from the sterilizer when unit cannot be vented to the outside.

With the sterilizer exhaust condenser kit you can use your sterilizer anywhere without having to worry about direct venting access.

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.

Maintain a SterilizerIn our first article, we told you how to know if your sterilizer is working properly. Now we are going to take a closer look at sterilizer maintenance and cleaning. There are many federal, state, and private companies involved in monitoring the safety of sterilizers and autoclaves.

Regularly maintaining and calibrating your equipment will ensure that you’re compliant with all rules, regulations, and best practices in the industry. In this article, you will learn how to maintain a sterilizer and keep it fully operational. (more…)

history of sterilization equipmentThe history of sterilization equipment dates back to the 1680s, however sterilizers did not become popular for practical use until the mid 1800s. Scientists like Louis Pasteur used sterilizers to perform experiments and understand fundamental chemical processes (

If you work in an environment with potentially hazardous biological substances, it’s important to understand the basic principles behind the sterilization process. So, let’s start at the beginning! (more…)
