Product Spotlight - Sterilization Equipment


SKS Science recognizes the importance of sterilization and strives to provide you with efficient, compact options to sterilize tools, instruments, and other small sized equipment in a laboratory setting.

Micro Bead Sterilizer

Micro Bead SterilizerThe Benchmark Micro Bead Sterilizer, available in both regular and tall sizes, has a 15 second sterilization time to disinfect tools like forceps and needles. The Micro Bead Sterilizer has an outer casing that is designed to stay cool even during long term use. A large LED display on the front shows the selected temperature of the inner chamber from 100°C to 300°C (212°F - 572°F). It takes approximately 25 minutes to preheat the inner chamber to the maximum 300°C. When purchased from SKS Science, the Micro Bead Sterilizer includes 1,000 g of glass beads for initial use. Additional glass beads may be purchased for continual use. Each model comes with a safety cover that closes off the chambers to reduce the heating rate and conserve power during sterilization. The Micro Bead Sterilizers do not use gas, flame, or other chemicals to operate, and can be used within hoods and European plug models. Please note that the Micro Bead Sterilizers are designed for research use only, they are not intended for clinical use.

BactiZapper Infrared Microsterilizer

BactiZapper Infrared MicrosterilizerThe BactiZapper Infrared Microsterilizer is a compact device that can complete sterilization in 5-7 seconds. The ceramic, asbestos-free core heating element produces a temperature of 815°C (1500°F), and is ideal to sterilize platinum inoculating loops, needles, glass tube/pipette mouths, and various metal & borosilicate glass instruments. A perforated stainless steel chamber encloses the heating element to prevent users from coming in contact with the high temperatures of the microsterilizer. SKS Science sells the BactiZapper Infrared Microsterilizers with the option to purchase additional attachments and replacement heating elements. The compact design allows for convenient storage while not in use. The BactiZapper Infrared Microsterilizer is designed for use in anaerobic and aerobic chambers.

BioClave Digital Bench Top Autoclaves

BioClave Digital Bench Top AutoclavesThe BioClave and BioClave Mini are capable of accommodating liquids, media, instruments, glassware, plasticware, and other everyday laboratory items in their expansive stainless steel chambers for sterilization. Both autoclaves possess built in water tanks, eliminating the need to attach external water supplies. Mechanical and electrical safety interlocks prevent opening until the pressure reaches zero PSI after sterilization cycles. The large digital displays and fully automatic operation allow sterilization cycles to complete with ease and minimal effort.

The BioClave Mini has a capacity of 8 L and can be set to 121°C (250°F) or 134°C (273°F) with adjustable sterilization times depending on the instruments within. For a larger option, the BioClave has a 16 L capacity and offers three sterilization cycles with an additional "Dry Only" option at the end of each cycle. All sterilizing parameters are fully adjustable, allowing for specialized applications with the BioClave. A USB drive, compatible with the thermal mini-printers sold separately by SKS Science, is included for record keeping purposes.
