The BioClave 16[TM] and BioClave Mini[TM] autoclaves are compact, space-saving units that offer rugged operation with a stainless steel interior chamber. Despite their small footprints, both BioClaves can accommodate a variety of liquids, media, instruments, glassware, plasticware and other common laboratory equipment. They feature a mechanical and electrical safety interlock that prevents the door from being opened until the pressure has reached zero PSI. No external water supply is required; a built-in water tank provides the source of sterilizing steam.

Despite its small footprint, the BioClave can accommodate a variety of liquids, media, instruments, glassware, plasticware and other common laboratory equipment. It features a mechanical and electrical safety interlock that prevents the door from being opened until the pressure has reached zero PSI.

The BioClave is fully automatic and runs all segments of the sterilization cycle with the push of a button on the large digital display. The user can choose from three cycle options which are preset for the sterilization of liquids, wrapped instruments or unwrapped instruments/plasticware. A “Dry Only” option is available for additional drying time to be added to the end of a cycle. All settings on the BioClave are fully adjustable for special applications requiring variations in cycle parameters.

An optional thermal mini-printer is also available for providing a record of sterilization parameters (compatible with BioClave 16 only).
