The 3870ELV is a vertical, freestanding, top loading autoclave that comes complete with castors for ease of movement. It features an advanced multi-colour control panel. Tuttnauer autoclaves have been specifically designed for laboratory sterilisation applications. They provide high quality, repeatable performance and documentation for quality assurance processes.

A range of options are available to tailor your autoclave to your specific needs, including fast cooling (up to 75%), super-fast cooling (up to 90%), efficient air and moisture removal, efficient heating, complete drying and a biohazard and waste system.

For the built-in steam generation model, ask for details of the 3870ELVC-G.

If you need a slightly larger freestanding model, see the 5075ELV.

Want a freestanding autoclave but don’t have a drain or water connection? Ask for details of the ELV-WR, a top loading autoclave that has a water reservoir that is filled manually. Only an electric power connection is needed. These autoclaves come in five different sizes, from 31 litres volume to 160 litres.
