Ward's® BioClave

B4000-M_WARDS B4000-16_WARDS
Convenient Benchtop Sterilization.

  • Fully automatic; just press start
  • Rapid, complete sterilization
  • Extremely compact
  • Built in water tank, does not require connection to an external water supply
  • 1 year warranty
Despite the space-saving exterior dimensions of the BioClaves, the stainless steel sterilization chambers are suprisingly large, accommodating a variety of liquids, media, instruments, glassware, plasticware and other common research laboratory items. Both of these benchtop models include a mechanical and electrical safety interlock that prevents the door from being opened until the pressure has been released.

With large digital displays and fully automatic operation, all segments of the sterilization cycle (fill, sterile, exhaust and dry) commence and run to completion by simply pressing the start button. An optional thermal mini-printer is also available for providing a record of sterilization parameters. In addition, a built in USB port allows for transfer of these parameters to a computer for printing or storage of cycle data.

Both BioClaves offer three cycle options (standard programs), which are preset for sterilization of liquids, wrapped instruments or unwrapped instruments/plasticware. BioClaves are not designed for non-research applications such as medical diagnoistics or food. A fourth option "Dry Only" is also available for additional drying time to be added to the end of a cycle. For special applications, requiring variations in cycle parameters, all settings on the Ward's BioClaves are fully adjustable.

The 8L Ward's BioClave Mini is preprogrammed to meet basic sterilization needs. Temperature can be selected at either 121°C or 134°C, and the sterilization time is fully adjustable. The economical Ward's BioClave Mini is the ideal choice whenever benchtop sterilization is required and space is limited.
