A Priorclave pass-through (double-door) research grade laboratory can provide a sterile path in and out of the laboratory, preserving its integrity and protecting the surrounding environment.
The British manufacturer can supply pass-through autoclave with sterilising chamber capacities up to 700 litres. They can be considered a bespoke design, albeit one that is created by adding a second door to a standard model. As Priorclave has total control over autoclave build, it can adapt an existing design or create a totally unique autoclave to meet customer requirements
Sterilising processes are controlled through the Tactrol 3 controller, with the layout configured to suit lab requirements. A typical set-up could one where only one side of the double door steriliser has access to the full control system – the other equipped with just a screen to show process status so that staff are aware when a job is complete and it is safe to remove the media or waste.
Autoclaves feature a robust bulkhead mount to facilitate a strong structural fix into a dividing wall between the sterile lab and non-sterile areas. Once installed, the double-door Pass-Through research autoclave is suitable to work as an interface between sterile and non-sterile areas.
Instruments may require doors to be hinged on the left or right and consideration is given to the location of electrical, water and drain services. Robust designs include advanced interlock setting, preventing the simultaneous opening of doors at either end of the chamber.
The experience Priorclave is always on hand to advise on critical installation issues, ensuring the autoclave build program accommodates local site requirements for a smooth path from delivery to installation and operation.
