Using laboratory Dental Autoclave Sterilizer for sterilization destroys all types and forms of micro-organisms including viruses, bacteria, fungi and bacterial endospores. These instruments use supersaturated steam under pressure for sterilization of surgical instruments, glassware, plastic ware, lab instruments and patient care utensils. This lab instrument is extensively used in dentistry, veterinary medicine, development and research of food production, microbiological and pharmaceuticals facilities.

One of the main benefits of using an autoclave is that it can reach temperatures higher than boiling water alone and can kill not only bacteria but also bacterial spores. Setting the right temperature is very important while using this device because if it does not reach the correct temperature, there are chances that the spores of certain bacterium will germinate.
