Product News: Autoclaves with Touch-Screen Controls Unveiled

11 Jun 2012

Achema 2012 gives UK autoclave manufacturer, Priorclave, the first opportunity to showcase a number of new developments on stand D37 (Hall 4.2) including a range of front-loading steam sterilizers with Tactrol Touch – new touch screen controls that will be on-show for the first time.

The latest version of the EH150 Priorclave, a 150 liter front-loading autoclave which gives 20% more loading area than conventional models of similar size, is the company’s first steam sterilizer to be released with the newly developed touch screen controls. Developed by Priorclave, Tactrol Touch provides for easier set-up and monitoring of the autoclaving process and is expected to be made available on all Priorclaves later this year.

This front loading steam sterilizer can be seen alongside the top-loading EV100, a 100 liter electrically heated autoclave, the C60 compact top-loading Priorclave that incorporates cooling and automatic timed free steaming, and the H60 compact, front-loading autoclave that offers a level of setting and operating flexibility usually only available in larger machines.

The models featured by Priorclave at Achema on stand D37 have been chosen to highlight the broad design spectrum of its smaller autoclave ranges, a versatile selection catering for low-volume, periodic sterilizing requirements to higher volume and more frequent application. These autoclaves are available with an extensive range of options, not often found in smaller machines, enabling Priorclave to tailor a machine build to satisfy virtually any laboratory sterilizing requirement.
