Infrared Loop Sterilizer - using IR-HotSpot Technology
High-Speed Annealing and Sterilizing the Smart Way
Are you looking for a fast, efficient and flameless product to anneal or sterilize
your inoculation loops and delicate micro instruments? Then our electrical
SteriMax smart should be your first choice – ideally suited for use in any type
of lab, anaerobic work environment and Laminar Flow Cabinet.
Smart Infrared Light – Instantly Ready to Work
Specifically focused infrared light generates an IR-HotSpot in which your
inoculation loop is sterilized at temperatures from 750 to 1000°C after only
5 to 10 seconds. The SteriMax smart just needs to be plugged in and will
be immediately ready to use, without any unnecessary warm-up period.
Our highly sophisticated annealing tube is based on many years of experience.
It is made of special quartz glass. The tube is closed at one end preventing
any risk of contamination with pathogenes.
The annealing tube can be slid out in a matter of seconds for easy cleaning.
Smart Operation – Touchless Working
SteriMax smart allows you to fully focus on your core task. Hardly any attention
is needed for inserting your inoculation loop into the annealing tube – which is
easily accessible from the front of the flat glass panel.
Touchless IR-Sensor technology starts each sterilization process automatically.
Adjustable timers signal both the completion of sterilization and cooling via the
display and an audible signal. After that your inoculation loop is ready for use.
Both timers can be adjusted and recalled individually and up to the second for
two users by gently touching the panel.
Smart Use of Power – Minimum Heat Dissipation
’Thermocontrol’ is the key element for an efficient use of power. It allows for quick but
smooth softstart of the infrared light, a short heating period and the re-use of residual
heat for the next sterilization process, which will be respectively shorter. Whenever
you pause, your energy consumption and heat dissipation will pause as well.
Smart Design – Outstanding Features
SteriMax smart comes in an elegant stainless steel housing with a touch safety
glass control panel designed for extreme laboratory environments with many
