The Q63 Lab Autoclave Punches above its Weight

The Q63 front loading, 320-litre capacity, autoclave from Priorclave provides both the general and research laboratory with the opportunity to acquire an autoclave that truly punches above its weight.

The Q63’s cylindrical chamber has a taller profile than most others of this design making it suitable for sterilising bulky items and significant numbers of smaller, taller items, while still having the advantage of lower running costs. The Q63 can therefore provide a true alternative to costly rectangular chamber autoclaves, which use more water and power and are thus also more expensive to run.

The Priorclave Q63 comes with a 630mm cyclindrical chamber and has a convenient low loading height of just 725mm and a Quickseal single-action door opening latch that is fitted with thermal and pressure locks to provide safe opening at low temperature and pressure.

Other advanced features include forced air cooling, to reduce cycle times, and automatically timed free-steaming for improved air removal. The result is an autoclave that can achieve the same sterilising load throughput, efficiency and effectiveness as more expensive machines.

Operation of the Q63 couldn’t be easier either, thanks to its Tactrol®2 microprocessor controller, which allows full programming of everything from simple cycles to fully featured multi-program procedures complete with printed records. The close control and flexibility offered by Tactrol®2 means that

the Q63 can be configured to log all temperature, pressure and cycle data into a single compact archive file. And with a secure key-lock on the control panel, unauthorised access to defined parameter settings can be prevented.

The Q63 has epoxy coated panels and frame members treated with an anti-bacterial agent that prevents the growth of harmful bacteria such as MRSA, Legionella, E.coli, Listeria, Campylobacter, Salmonella, Pseudomonas and over 50 other species.

This makes the Priorclave Q63 ideal for sterilising media, liquids and dilutants, waste, glassware and specialised apparatus in a wide range of fields, such as food and dairy, beverages, pharmaceuticals, agricultural, healthcare and education, as well as dedicated research establishments.
