Convenient, eco-friendly autoclaving

Mar 07 2024

In the realm of laboratories and research facilities, Astell Scientific has been a leading force in providing sustainable and efficient sterilisation solutions for nearly a quarter century. Their commitment to user-friendly eco-consciousness is displayed in the Astell Compact Toploading Autoclave.

Similar to their benchtop counterparts, the Compact Toploading Autoclaves offer a range of features tailored to meet operational needs of the modern life sciences laboratory. Available in 63-litre capacity, these floor-standing self-contained steriliser units require no plumbing and operate efficiently from a standard single-phase power supply, making them ideal for settings where space is at a premium.

The Compact Autoclave range is available in two versions: the 'Classic' and the 'Ecofill'. The 'Ecofill' model boasts an integral reservoir and an in-built 'autofill' water re-circulation system. This clever feature not only offers convenience but significantly reduces water consumption, a crucial factor amid increasing environmental concerns. This system allows for water usage optimisation, providing water for up to 15 cycles while minimising waste by acting as a collection vessel for condensate and residual water, positioning themselves as one of the most environmentally friendly options in the market.

On the other hand, the 'Classic' version requires manual water-fill, with condensate leaving the vessel via a silicone tube connected to a heat-resistant bottle during the cycle.

With Astell's Compact Toploading Autoclaves, organisations can enjoy the benefits of sustainable sterilisation technology without compromising on performance or convenience. For more information or to request a quotation, contact Astell Scientific today.
