Project: Replacement of a 20 year old vertical steamautoclave by a save and up-to-date apparatus. A recent technical inspection no longer approves the use of the old autoclave with regard to safety aspects.

01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
The high-cost-price of the necessary repairs and the non-conformities with current safety rules make revision of the apparatus not opportune. Cooperation with another laboratory is not possible and external funds for such-non-soffisticated but indispensable equipment are hardly available. A modern and up-to-date steamautoclave is nevertheless essential for the continuity of the scientific research at the Labo where sterile handling of microorganisms and fermentation equipment are important.
