The Simplicity of Steam Sterilization

Autoclave Validation

Data Loggers for Sterilization ApplicationsWarner, NH, USA — Despite the many sterilization methods available today, steam sterilization continues to rise as a top choice because of its simple yet effective decontamination method.

Through the use of an autoclave, this process involves four parameters: steam, pressure, temperature and time.

A successful cycle directly exposes the contaminated items to steam at the required temperature and pressed for the specified time.

Steam sterilization is typically carried by using a high-pressure chamber, known as an autoclave. Once the chamber is sealed, steam is pumped into the top and sides of the chamber, forcing the air out. (more…)
