Description

 

Cefas are looking at replacing the existing autoclave which was purchased in 1996 and is now coming to end of life.

The proposed solution is required to be able to accommodate the following (as a minimum)
– A front-loading barrel chamber with a moveable temperature probe, that can be positioned where the load is potentially coolest.
– An option to allow the load to cool to room temperature or to a defined temperature if a certain temperature is required to be maintained (to prevent setting in agarose media).
