When you complete the experiment, various glass instruments, such as test tubes, flasks, etc., have been contaminated with various chemical reagents, including gases in the reagents. At this time, you need special equipment for cleaning and sterilization. Commonly used equipment is ultrasonic cleaner, bottle washer, steam sterilizer.
The ultrasonic cleaning machine can emit high-frequency mechanical oscillations, so that the cleaning fluid has an ultrasonic cavitation effect, and the micro bubbles are formed to impact the gaps on the surface of the object, so that the pollutants are peeled off to achieve the purpose of cleaning. Ultrasonic cleaning is a physical function that does not cause any damage to your product and is absolutely safe. It can help you remove blood, proteins and contaminants from glassware and laboratory equipment.
Laboratory Glassware Washer
If you have more cleaning objects and have enough budget, you can consider glassware washer with different shapes and capacities. For different size glassware, there are different cleaning basket supports and special cleaning agents. More importantly, the bottle washer has a drying function, which greatly saves labor costs compared with manual cleaning.
In some special experiments, the operator must perform aseptic operations, so the items need to be sterilized. Steam sterilization is a common physical means of killing organisms because high temperatures have a significant lethal effect on bacteria. The most common use at present is the high pressure steam sterilizer, which is divided into portable, bench top, and vertical style, depending on the appearance. It is suitable for disinfection and sterilization of glassware, instruments and solution medium in the laboratory.
