Laboratory Washer DisinfectorExperiments, scientific progress, and ultimately commercial success relies on what is often referred to as laboratory conditions which essentially means policies and practices accepted by trained scientists to assure the quality and integrity of laboratory experiments.

In order to provide your experiments with recognised validity, you have to be able to prove that your findings are repeatable, and this will include ensuring that all the glassware and other utensils used in any of those experiments are completely disinfected. Any contamination of the tools you use could essentially distort and invalidate the results. This is why laboratories invest in Laboratory Washer Disinfectors.

How To Choose The Best Laboratory Washer Disinfector?

When choosing the best laboratory washer disinfector for your needs, there are a number of things you need to take into consideration.

Hospital Sterilisation and Disinfection UnitsThe Types of Products You Will Be Washing

The layout and capacity of washer disinfectors vary considerably, so you need to consider what products you will be washing. If you are washing small products such as test tubes and pipettes, then the height of the shelving is not as important, whereas beakers, Duran Bottles and Cylinders may require shelves with a larger gap between them.

Access Requirements and Size

The volume of space you have within your laboratory will be a deciding factor in your choice of disinfector. Another consideration should be how much work you expect the machine to be put through.

If it is likely to be in use constantly, then it would make sense to spend a little more upfront rather than choosing a smaller, less powerful unit. When it comes to access, will you need 1 or 2 doors?

Will you position the unit between a dirty side and a clean room? Although these might seem inconsequential decisions, the success of the purchase could be dependent on making the right types of decisions during the buying process.
