Autoclave Basics

The development of the autoclave sterilizer in 1879 is credited to Charles Chamberland. At approximately that time, medical researchers were starting to learn more about the benefits of sterilized surgery. Doctors required a more dependable sterilization process than simply using an open flame. The benefits of the autoclave soon became clear and it wasn’t too long until it was an important part to have at most any clinic or hospital. An autoclave is basically utilized for the sterilization of surgical and medical equipment, lab instruments, pharmaceutical products and many other materials. An autoclave can sterilize liquids, solids and instruments of many different sizes and shapes. They range in shape and functionality. A standard autoclave is somewhat comparable to a form of pressure cooker in that each use steam to kill off bacteria, germs and spores that are resistant to boiling water and strong cleansing detergents.

Autoclave chambers are used to sterilize medical or lab devices and instruments by heating them up to the boiling point. Most care facilities are equipped with tabletop autoclaves, which are similar in their size to a standard microwave oven. Hospitals typically use large autoclaves that are also referred to as “horizontal” autoclaves. They are often located in a hospital’s sterile services department and are able to process multiple surgical tools in one sterilization cycle, which meets the continual demand for sterilized equipment within operating rooms or emergency rooms.
