Autoclave

Autoclave Sterilizer

The Saniclaves are table-top steam sterilizers, also known as autoclaves. Revolutionary Science has been manufacturing and providing the Saniclave autoclave product line since 2005.

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared the first Saniclave model [(10 liter Saniclave 200 and Saniclave 200P (with an embedded printer)] in 2012 for medical use, followed by the smaller 8 liter, top loading Saniclave 102 and later, the Saniclave 250 (10 liter) which is validated for lumened devices, such as trocars.autoclave applications

Steam sterilizers and autoclaves work by boiling water inside a stainless steel pressurized chamber. The heating element and sensors are controlled and read by a microprocessor to maintain precise levels of pressure, temperature and time. As the steam saturates, hot water droplets condense on the surfaces of autoclaveable instruments (referred to as the load) in pressure of 15 psi and temperature of 121C (250F) for a period of 30 minutes. Steam sterilization is judged by the FDA to be the most effective form of killing dangerous pathogens and microorganisms in both medical and laboratory settings. Although Revolutionary Science also manufactures laboratory autoclaves, all of Revolutionary Science’s medical autoclaves are assembled in the USA and registered with the FDA as Class II medical devices cleared for human use.

Common uses for the simple, small, user friendly Revolutionary Science Saniclave sterilizers are sterilizing media and asceptic techniques in the microbiology field, medical and surgical instruments, bio-identical hormone therapy (BHRT) trocars, dental instruments, orthodontic instruments, veterinary supplies, tattoo and body-art, nail salon nippers, clippers and other devices, medical waste and general clinical applications. The Saniclave is extremely popular and press releases about the Saniclave were featured on NPR, The Boston Globe and other well known news outlets.

Clinical/Surgical Sterilization

Standard surgical instruments are considered solid, mated, porous, lumened or knurled. It is imperative to choose the correct autoclave for your application. Wrapped, pouched or loads containing gauze must be sterilized in a Saniclave 200 series autoclave, due to it’s ability to dry after the sterilization cycle. All of our FDA cleared Saniclaves have the ability to sterilize solid, non-porous, mated, hinged and knurled devices. Only the Saniclave 250 has the ability to properly sterilize trocars and lumened devices. When printer documentation is required for your practice, the Saniclave 200P (includes printer) is recommended.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

The Saniclave 250 has the ability to properly sterilize trocars and other lumened devices. Due to the fact that bio identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) practices commonly use pelleting trocars, the Saniclave 250 is the only option available through Revolutionary Science.

Laboratory Sterilization

A common microbiology application that requires an autoclave, like the Revolutionary Science Saniclave is to sterilize agar prior to pouring petri plates. Agar that is not sterile can contain contaminants that can interfere with an experiment. When sterilizing liquids, it is important to use a slow steam release, so your mixture does not boil over.

For microbiology applications, aseptic techniques should be employed. When bacteria is grown on petri plates, it is concentrated. Some strains of bacteria may be unknown and extremely dangerous. Be cautious. Use latex or latex-free gloves while handling the petri plates. Petri plates should be properly disposed of in an autoclave bag after they are no longer needed. Sterilization can be performed by a Saniclave. For non-medical microbiological laboratory applications, it is not necessary to use an FDA cleared autoclave. The Saniclave 50 is limited in features, but may be an affordable option.

Nail Salon & Beauty Sterilization

Most standard nail salon instruments and tools are solid, mated, porous, lumened or knurled. Metal files, scissors, nippers and clippers. It is imperative to choose the correct autoclave for your application. Wrapped, pouched or loads containing gauze must be sterilized in a Saniclave 200 series autoclave, due to it’s ability to dry after the sterilization cycle. All of our FDA cleared Saniclaves have the ability to sterilize solid, non-porous, mated, hinged and knurled devices that are used in nail salons. When printer documentation is required for your practice, the Saniclave 200P is recommended. When unwrapped or unpouched sterilized tools will be used immediately after sterilization, a more simple and cost effective Saniclave 102 may be a preferred option.

Tattoo/Body Art Sterilization

Most standard tattoo and body art instruments are solid, mated, porous, lumened or knurled. It is imperative to choose the correct autoclave for your application. Wrapped, pouched or loads containing gauze must be sterilized in a Saniclave 200 series autoclave, due to it’s ability to dry after the sterilization cycle. All of our FDA cleared Saniclaves have the ability to sterilize solid, non-porous, mated, hinged and knurled devices. When printer documentation is required for your practice, the Saniclave 200P is recommended. When unwrapped or unpouched sterilized tools will be used immediately after sterilization, a more simple and cost effective Saniclave 102 may be a preferred option.
