Portable, Top-Loading Autoclaves
Available from Amerex Instruments Inc
Amerex offers 13 autoclave models to meet the sterilization needs of most biological research laboratories. They are fully automatic, stand-alone, microprocessor-controlled, programmable, self-contained systems. All models incorporate a built-in steam generator and plug into a standard 120VAC (or 220VAC) power outlet, thereby eliminating costly set-up charges. Water for steam generation is poured directly into the chamber. After sterilization, steam is vented automatically into a plastic bottle in front of the autoclave. A warming cycle keeps sterilized agar from solidifying and also can be used for melting sterilized agar. Amerex's top-loading autoclaves are labeled and distributed for research use only.
