Dry Heat Sterilization
Dry heat sterilization eliminates, removes, kills or deactivates all forms of life and other biological agents (such as fungi, bacteria, viruses, spore forms and prions) by raising the temperature of an item to above 320°F. Heated air or steam can be used in this process. Our lab sterilizers are ideal for laboratory and pharmaceutical applications. Dry heat ovens have several advantages over steam autoclaves, including higher temperatures and the ability to sterilize materials that might be damaged by steam or are impenetrable to moist heat. It is the most effective sterilization method, with lower energy and cost.
