Most standard surgical 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 listed 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. For veterinary applications, it is not necessary to use an FDA listed autoclave. The Saniclave 50 is limited in features, but may be an affordable option.
