Autoclaves are ideal for sterilizing laboratory equipment and supplies. These machines are able to effectively sterilize laboratory equipment through applying a high-pressure steam to the equipment. Most autoclaves sterilize equipment at 120 degrees Celsius in 15 to 20 minutes.
This sterilization equipment is used throughout many different types of industries. Some of these industries include microbiology, veterinary science, and pharmaceuticals. With the frequent use of laboratory equipment in these applications, autoclaves provide an easy and effective way to keep equipment sterile.
