Benchmark BioClave Digital Benchtop Autoclaves

Product Summary: Steam sterilization of research tools and consumables is convenient and affordable with the new BioClave™ digital research autoclaves. With a width of under 18 in. (under 14 in. for the BioClave Mini), both models will fit comfortably on even the most crowded bench top.
Despite the space-saving exterior dimensions, the sterilization chambers are surprisingly large, accommodating a variety of liquids, media, instruments, glassware, plasticware and other common laboratory items. Both models include a mechanical and electrical safety interlock that prevents the door from being opened until the pressure has reached zero PSI.
With large digital displays and fully automatic operation, all segments of the sterilization cycle (fill, sterilize, exhaust and dry) commence and run to completion by simply pressing the start button.
This product is not intended for use in medical or patient care applications.


  • Fully automatic; just press “start”
  • Rapid, complete sterilization
  • Extremely compact

BioClave 16 The 16 liter BioClave offers three cycle options (standard programs), which are preset for the sterilization of liquids, wrapped instruments or unwrapped instruments/plasticware. A fourth option “Dry Only” is also available for additional drying time to be added to the end of a cycle. For special applications, requiring variations in cycle parameters, all settings on the BioClave 16 are fully adjustable.

BioClave Mini The 8 liter BioClave Mini is preprogrammed to meet basic research sterilization needs. Although the temperature can be selected at either 121°C or 134°C, the sterilization time is fixed. The economical BioClave Mini is the ideal choice wherever bench top sterilization is required and space is limited.
