How to Use an Autoclave

How to Use an Autoclave

There are a lot of products that need to be sterilized: pharmaceuticals, equipment, solutions, medical waste, and even tattoo needles!

We use a device called an Autoclave to sterilize materials in the lab. In today's demonstration, we'll show 2 common applications:

1. Sterilize a solution using slow exhaust.
2. Sterilize and dry some empty glassware using fast exhaust.

You can explore our interactive autoclave for free.
