Priorclave Renews Partnership with BioCote

May 28 2010

Priorclave Ltd, manufacturers of autoclaves and providers of solutions to complex problems of effective sterilisation, has renewed its agreement to incorporate BioCote® powder coating technology into the manufacture of its autoclaves.

The silver based, BioCote®coating technology incorporated into the exterior surfaces of the Priorclaves aids the fight against cross-infection by inhibiting the growth of a wide range of microorganisms, including bacteria such as E-Coli, Pseudomonas and the superbug MRSA within hospital, biochemical and pharmaceutical laboratory environments as well as food industry, research sectors and many others.

No less vital is the maintenance of the hygiene standards within a busy working laboratory where the Priorclave surface will be touched, inevitably, by operatives handling organisms during normal shared use of the equipment and is, therefore, likely to be an area where cross-contamination might be an issue.

While the autoclave range offers the capacity to inhibit the growth of bacteria on the inside and also the outside of the model, the company emphasise that the technology should be regarded as an enhancement to,
and not a replacement for, good cleaning and sterilisation practice.
