A CertoClav is a closed pressure vessel in which you can clean (medical) instruments 100% sterile with the help of steam. CertoClaving is by far the most reliable and efficient cleaning method available: Bacteria do not stand a chance in the sterilization process. It is therefore not surprising that CertoClavs are widely used in the medical field.


CertoClavs come in many different types and sizes. In the world of autoclaves, the different types are specified using classes. In short, there are 3 different classes of CertoClavs:

N-class CertoClav (the lowest class).

S-class CertoClav (the middle class).

B-class CertoClav (the highest class)


N-class CertoClavs belong to the lowest class of autoclaves. The N in N-class stands for Naked (unpackaged). This CertoClav type is therefore only suitable for sterilizing unwrapped, solid instruments. Think, for example, of tweezers, forceps, scissors, etc.


S-Class (Special) CertoClavs are suitable not only for sterilization of unwrapped instruments, but also for sterilization of pre-wrapped solid instruments. However, it is important that they are not hollow bodies.


Then we come to the höchst class: B. The letter B stands for big range. So it won't surprise you that a CertoClav is suitable for a wide range of applications. CertoClavs have a fractionated pre- and post-vacuum program that allows you to sterilize all medical instruments that are suitable for sterilization.
