PRESTIGE Series 2100 Clinical Autoclave
The autoclave uses time, pressure, temperature and steam to sterilize forceps used for electrolysis thereby ensuring a sterile and safe experience for you.
STERILIZATION is the process of making an object germ-free. It involves destroying all pathogenic (infectious) bacteria as well as all nonpathogenic bacteria, which are not harmful.
FORCEPS are used to lift the hair. In the past Forceps were cleaned with alcohol. Another method was the Glass Bead Sterilizer which, in Ontario, has been outlawed for use as a sterilizer for some five years.
One of the best methods of sterilization today is the AUTOCLAVE. The Autoclave sterilizer uses temperature (121 degrees C), pressure, time and steam for complete sterilization. At Bishop's Electrolysis, our Autoclave is monitored once a month by the Canadian Micro-Pigmentation Center in order to ensure that the absolute standards of sterilization are maintained.
