AUTOCLAVES: DIFFERENT TYPES AND THEIR BENEFITS

Invented by French microbiologist Charles Chamberland in 1879, the autoclave has become one of the most important pieces of equipment for the surgical, medical and scientific industries.

Autoclaves have a broad range of laboratory applications which include the sterilisation of liquids (such as nutrient and culture media), solids (instruments, pipettes, and glassware), waste (destructive sterilisation of liquid waste in bottles, or solid waste in destruction bags) and biological hazards in safety laboratories.

Although all autoclaves have the same fundamental function (to sterilise), there are different types of autoclaves for different functions. The types of autoclaves available through Bioline are:

Horizontal Autoclave

Is a fridge just a fridge?

Having the most suitable refrigeration for your laboratory’s temperature-sensitive bioproducts, means understanding key differences between types of refrigerators that are available.

Just keeping items inside a fridge, cold or frozen, is no longer sufficient. Storing medicines and other expensive biological products means the highest standards of refrigeration are demanded. In Australia, government regulatory bodies for the agricultural research, pharmaceuticals and food safety industries have temperature requirements for safe storage of different bioproducts.

Most research laboratories use specifically designed laboratory refrigeration units that meet the requirements for biomaterial storage, and are unmatched by residential and commercial refrigeration systems. Laboratory refrigerators are purposefully designed and manufactured for the storage of medical products, and temperature or heat sensitive biological specimens.

What is the difference between static and fan forced refrigeration?

Conventional static refrigeration is a commonly used cooling system in laboratory refrigeration, but these systems do not allow for optimum airflow within the biostorage cabinet.

As the system implies, static refrigeration works in the absence of air circulation inside the refrigeration compartment (air immobility). This creates uneven air distribution and pockets of warmer temperatures. Temperature differences in various zones can have serious consequences leaving medicines, vaccines and specimens unstable, and even destroying expensive biomaterials.

Save and grow more with LED plant growth lighting

LumiGrow, Pro Series 650

Using traditional grow lights for horticultural applications can be costly and time consuming. These lights for plants use vast amounts of heat and light energy and operate on a fixed colour spectrum. Additionally, suboptimal growing conditions can be created by delivering the same amplitude of light waves for photosynthesis regardless of the nutrient requirements for different plant varieties.

Finding energy efficient solutions that encourages consistent growth of all plants throughout the seasons can achieve the best results without the high operating costs.

Water purification systems – Vital for reliable clinical research

OmniaTap small

Working in a biological research laboratory means relying on equipment or scientific applications that need a pure water supply free from contaminants.

Water that contains impurities can harm expensive laboratory assets and cause variability in your scientific outputs. Many substances found in tap water, such as particles, microorganisms or inorganic ions can interfere with equipment and sterile applications, which are harmful to your research.

How to control your anaerobic research in demanding test environments

If your research facility requires a controlled environment for oxygen sensitive microbiology, biological product containment or isolation control, it can be difficult to continually sustain a stable anaerobic atmosphere.

Creating a controlled environment for anaerobic cell culture research in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries can bring challenges in technique and scale.

Anaerobic chambers are designed to allow reliable control of atmospheric gas, temperature and humidity, making them ideal for environmental simulation to grow microorganisms without oxygen.

Cold chain management with portable ultra-low freezers

Maintaining continuous cold storage until delivery is important for laboratories regularly transporting temperature-sensitive biological products between sites.

Laboratory products represent significant investments of time and resources. Having an efficient cold supply chain helps protect your facility’s biological assets and ensures their integrity, particularly if they are being used to treat patients. Pharmaceutical biological products that are temperature sensitive are required to be delivered at the approved storage temperature. [1]

Wireless Temperature Monitoring – The Latest Developments In Laboratory Equipment

Wireless Temperature Monitoring from Bioline Global

Keeping the inside of laboratory refrigerators and freezers within a safe temperature range maintains the integrity of research stored in the cabinet. The correct environmental conditions at the right temperature is particularly important for temperature sensitive material such as vaccines, biological, food products, or medications.

As continuous monitoring by laboratory staff can be onerous, advancements in laboratory equipment have seen the development of wireless technology which can reliably be used around the clock to monitor inside temperatures of refrigerators or freezers to crucially notice any changes.

Which Autoclave Is Most Suited To Your Laboratory?

Autoclaves from Bioline Global

Having appropriate equipment in your research facility to sterilise laboratory apparatus by destroying harmful microorganisms is essential to maintaining infection control and a sterile work environment.

Autoclaves that use steam sterilisation are commonly used in laboratories. Autoclaves use the intense heat from the steam flush to apply pressure inside the equipment to kill microbes on apparatus, using hydrolysis to coagulate and denature the cellular proteins [1].

How Ultra-Low Temperature Free-Piston Freezers Can Protect Your Research

Ultra-Low Temperature Free-Piston Freezers

Having a reliable ultra-low temperature (ULT) freezer in your research laboratory not only stores research samples safely but also protects fragile specimens from degradation during an unexpected power outage. A power outage or a refrigeration system failure can put years of specimen samples in jeopardy.

In 2012, during Hurricane Sandy, researchers at the New York University (NYU) School of Medicine lost electrical infrastructure to their research laboratory which cut off supply to their freezers. Despite their valiant efforts carrying samples on dry ice down 18 flights of stairs, the extended power outage destroyed 25 years of specimens contained in their freezers [1].

Why ATEX Approved Fridges & Freezers Are Important To Work Safely In Hazardous Area

ATEX-approved fridges and freezers are important to safe working environments.

During the day-to-day operations of many research facilities, flammable gases, mists, vapours, or combustible dusts may be released, creating a potentially explosive atmosphere that is dangerous for health and safety in the workplace.

When these hazardous flammable substances mix with air, equipment in the laboratory is capable of igniting the explosive atmosphere even when the equipment is working properly without faults.
