Astell Scientific Wins The Space Race


2/22/2010 12:58:02 PM

Astell, the leading autoclave and steriliser manufacturers, have solved the eternal problem of how to double your laboratory’s autoclave capacity without increasing the equipment footprint. Their new Duaclave range combines two identical chambers, one directly above the other within one frame.

The two chambers come equipped with all the features that Astell users have come to expect like delayed start, allowing sterilisation to take place overnight, Holdwarm capability to maintain the autoclave at a pre-set temperature after sterilisation until required and data archiving to ensure that all cycle details are automatically recorded and saved.

The two chambers are fully independent and each has its own Logi control system accessed via a full colour, icon-driven touch screen with password protected security. This means that, for example, while one chamber may be processing fluids, the other can either be sitting idle or perhaps completing a discard load.

The range includes both electrically heated and direct steam heated models, and options include load sensed process timing, assisted cooling and assisted cooling.

As with all Astell autoclaves and sterilisers, the Duaclave range is CE marked and manufactured to comply with the Pressure Equipment Directive PD97/23/EC, the Medical Devices Directive MDD 93/42/EEC and all other applicable UK and international standards. Full IQ and OQ documentation is available for all models.

Astell Duaclave autoclaves are available in 33, 43, 63, 120 and 153 litre chamber sizes to suit most laboratory applications including sterilisation of reagents and media, glassware, laboratory instruments and discard.

Visit www.astell.com for further information on Astell’s sterilisation solutions.

About the company:

Astell Scientific have been pioneers in the manufacture and validation of Scientific and Laboratory equipment for over 80 years. In the last decade the company has concentrated on becoming market leaders in sterilization technology.
