Systec autoclaves are successfully used in research as laboratory autoclaves as well as in production as industrial autoclaves (e.g. as production autoclave in the pharmaceutical industry or the food industry) for more than 20 years.

The right autoclave for you?

Choose from more than 70 different types of autoclaves with chamber volumes from 23 to 1580 liter.

All Systec autoclaves are built modular and can be equipped with options and accessories for optimization of sterilization processes. Thus, only the options are fitted to the autoclave that are necessary for optimization of the relevant sterilization processes.

  • Sterilization of liquids (e.g. culture media, nutrient media)
  • Sterilization of solids (e.g. instruments, pipettes, glassware)
  • Sterilization of waste (e.g. destruction of liquid waste in bottles or solid waste in waste bags)
  • Sterilization of biohazards in safety laboratories classes BSL 1, BSL 2, BSL 3 and BSL 4

Heat-up, sterilization, cooling or drying?

For each process step there is a possibility for optimization. Systec autoclaves can be configured that a validation of the sterilization process is possible, to proof a reproducible sterilization in safety laboratories, in cleanrooms and in production facilities. Gladly be support you with qualification and validation of your sterilization processes.

  • Design Qualification (DQ)
  • Installation Qualification (IQ)
  • Operational Qualification (OQ)
  • Process Qualification (PQ)

All steps of the qualification process can be supported by our competent personnel and will be documented according to GMP requirements.

Along with the mentioned application areas, Systec autoclaves can also be used for further applications such as material test (stress tests) or for simulation of industrial sterilization processes in a smaller scale.

Contact us that we can configure the optimal autoclave with regards to size and process technology with you. Trust in more than 20 years of expertise in the area of steam sterilization and process development even of most complex autoclave technologies.

Autoclave – Definition and application areas (Wikipedia)

An autoclave is a device used to sterilize equipment and supplies by subjecting them to high pressure saturated steam at 121 °C for around 15–20 minutes depending on the size of the load and the contents. It was invented by Charles Chamberland in 1879, although a precursor known as the steam digester was created by Denis Papin in 1679.

The name comes from Greek auto-, ultimately meaning self, and Latin clavis meaning key—a self-locking device.
