Memmert Sterilisers meet revised ISO standards…

In August 2013, the German edition of DIN EN ISO 20857: 2013 on the development, validation and control of the sterilisation of medical products with dry heat was published.

The Memmert hot air sterilisers S meet the requirements of the internationally applicable standard without any restrictions.

 

Steriliser SF110plus

Steriliser SF110plus

 

Justifiably, requirements for the conditioning of medical products such as instruments, glassware and miscellaneous metal equipment are most stringent. The level of safety for medical products according to DIN EN 556-1 has to be at 10-6. This means that the germ reduction rate has to be better than 1:1,000,000. Hot air sterilisation is not only suitable for the elimination of germs but also for denaturation of pyrogens and endotoxins.

New Safety Enhanced Laboratory Gas Burners from WLD Tec

The Fuego SCS series from WLD Tec GmbH provides maximum safety and highest convenience for all flame related applications in the laboratory.

The Fuego SCS offers more convenience utilising a new graphic display and comfort functions. The display is wordless and uses symbols for rapid and easy selection of functions.

The user can visualise the zero pressure shut-off, gas consumption, cooling reminder and temperature regulation. The Fuego’s streamlined design reduces airflow disturbances in laminar flow cabinets.

Fuego Loop Flame

Fuego Loop Flame

The Safety control system (SCS) demonstrates state-of-the-art safety technology which monitors for potential hazards and interrupts the gas supply.

Passive safety features include a residual heat display to warn users that the head is still hot.

The  adjustable automatic cut-off system inhibits the unintentional ignition when the flame has not been lit for a long period of time. The Fuego SCS can be operated with the touch free DoubleClick IR-sensor button or foot pedal.

Unintentional ignition is not possible with the foot pedal as it needs a double click to operate it.

 

The full Fuego Pro range can be found here, and the Autoloop add on for “carousel-style” loop inoculation sterilisation
