Autoclave is a laboratory equipment with a large chamber vessel that uses heat, steam or pressure to destroy microorganisms. Surgical & laboratory instruments must be sterilized to ensure no living microorganism is present. Presence of bacteria, fungi or viruses on these instruments can prove to be deadly. There are lots of products that need to be sterilized such as pharmaceuticals, equipment, solutions or even medical waste.
Autoclaves are capable of successfully eliminating pathogens which may be resistant to soap and detergents by utilizing steam to create a high pressure and temperature environment
The pervasiveness of the steam created within the autoclave allows for thorough sterilization within hollow instruments and other tiny vents which could be missed during cleaning with detergent. Depending on the objects being sterilized, autoclave cycles must be manually set by a technician to produce the safest and most optimal sterilization parameters for the given load.
The sterilization process includes several phases.
Purge phase: During the purge phase, steam displaces air within the autoclave chamber. Both temperature and pressure begin to increase.
Sterilization phase: The exhaust remains closed, allowing the temperature and pressure to rapidly rise to the desired values. In this phase, the autoclave’s harsh conditions destroy bacteria, spores and other pathogens.
Exhaust phase: Pressure is released from the chamber, but temperatures remain fairly high. Technicians should take care when removing hot contents from the autoclave.
