How do I choose an autoclave?
It’s simple. The most important place to start is to understand what you wish to sterilise, how often, and whether it needs to be dry at the end of the cycle. From here it’s possible to identify the size of the steriliser chamber and whether a top or front opening door is suitable. Finally, there’s usually a selection of options to consider which assist with process speeds and drying. The Astell Guide to Autoclaves will help you understand why these are important questions and guide your final choices.
