Autoclaves for Biotech & Pharma CSS' Biotech and Pharma clients: From glassware and pipettes to biological agents and cell cultures, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies must sterilize equipment and other media in order to eliminate biological contaminants and to ensure the integrity and reliability of their research and production. Here at Consolidated Sterilizer Systems, we offer a range of laboratory autoclaves designed to meet the unique requirements of the biotech/pharma industries. Our autoclaves are manufactured with high-grade materials, making them durable, reliable and able to stand the test of time. In addition, great care is taken to design and build our equipment with built-in sustainability features that reduce energy and water consumption. Bioverativ Biopharmaceutical Case Study Play Video Ask Us About Validating Your Autoclave Satisfying the Biotech & Pharma Industry’s Sterilization Needs Given that biotechnology laboratories handle live organisms, including bacteria, enzymes and — in some cases — potentially lethal microbes, it’s imperative that they conduct all research in a safe, regulatory compliant environment. Popular Consolidated Sterilizer Models for Biotech & Pharmaceutical Companies Dual Chamber Tower Autoclave The Tower Model is a “stacked” dual chamber autoclave that drastically reduces the space required for sterilization systems within any laboratory setup. Shop All Double Door Pass-Thru Autoclave Choose from a variety of chamber sizes equipped with two doors. This series meets the tough requirements of biocontainment facilities, such as in Biosafety Level 3 rated laboratories, and clean-rooms. Shop All Single Door Hinged Autoclave Choose from a range of chamber sizes that are built with our time-tested and robust radial-arm, hinged door. Shop All Single Door Vertical Sliding Autoclave Choose from a range of chamber sizes equipped with our ergonomically friendly EZ-Glide vertical sliding door. Shop All Cycle Selection Typical Cycles for the Biotech & Pharma Industries All of Consolidated’s sterilizers are equipped to run multiple steam sterilization cycle types, programmable through our state-of-the-art X1 Control System. Biotech and Pharma companies will find the following cycle-types especially useful based on their particular needs: Gravity The most basic sterilization type, a gravity cycle uses gravity to replace air in the chamber with steam via a drain port. Gravity cycles are best suited for glassware, unwrapped goods, waste, utensils and red bags. Liquids A liquid cycle is the same as a gravity cycle, though it uses a slower exhaust rate to minimize boil-over. Liquid cycles are best suited for media, LB broth and water.

Help Me Choose Frequently Asked Questions Are Consolidated’s autoclaves capable of sterilizing biohazardous materials in biocontainment facilities? Yes. Our pass-thru autoclaves are an ideal choice for biocontainment facilities because they feature: Two doors that allow for the flow of goods from a contained room to a non-contained room An electro-mechanical interlocking mechanism that prevents both doors from opening at the same time, even in the event of power or utility loss A “passive” door gasket design that creates a purely mechanical seal and will not deflate if punctured or if compressed air or steam is lost A stainless steel biological sealing flange to provide separation and create a positive seal between the hazardous side and the contained side An effluent decontamination system to ensure that any effluent leaving the autoclave is free of harmful microbes Do Consolidated’s autoclaves comply with biotechnology industry regulations? Yes, our autoclaves are built according to Bioprocessing Equipment standards (as established by ASME BPE), BS EN 285 and ISO 17665.
