BioWork 7040: Sterilizing Liquids - Autoclaving and Filtration

7040 Sterilizing Liquids - Autoclaving and Filtration


The autoclave and sterile filtration are two common techniques we use to sterilize liquids and protect patients. In this demo, we’ll make some culture media and split it into three fractions. Then we’ll compare an untreated sample (control) with one from the autoclave and a third that’s been through a sterile filtration process.
