Hot Air Oven

Conventionally heat is used as a medium to eliminate or kill bacteria to perform sterilization in surgical material. Both Hot Air Oven & Autoclave produce the desired result but with different mode of operation. A Hot Air Oven uses dry heat as the mode of sterilization, where as an Autoclave uses hot steam under pressure for the same. The sterilization achieved in an Autoclave by steam at 134*C is equivalent to the sterilization achieved by Hot Air at 160*C. Hot Air Ovens & Autoclaves produced by Acumen Labware are highly appreciated in labs around the world.
