Launches autoclave bags that do not require tape

Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Sterilin indicator autoclave bags for the disposal of biohazardous waste contain a unique indicator strip that displays “AUTOCLAVED” after completing an autoclave cycle. This means there is no need for autoclave tape and makes it easy to distinguish between autoclaved and un-autoclaved bags, making waste disposal safer.

The large 810x610mm Sterilin indicator autoclave bags are supplied in tissue box-style cartons of 200. They are suitable for high-temperature waste decontamination autoclave cycles up to 135°C. A choice of cardboard or coated wire bag holders is available to support the bags while they are being filled.

The bags also help laboratories meet Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations for waste that may contain hazardous chemicals or micro-organisms, enabling easier separation of pre- and post-autoclave waste.
