An autoclave is an instrument used to sterilize equipment and supplies by subjecting them to high pressure saturated steam at 121 °C or more, typically for 15–20 minutes depending on the size of the load and the contents. It was invented by Charles Chamberland in 1879, although a precursor known as the steam digester was created by Denis Papin in 1679. The name comes from Greek auto-, ultimately meaning self, and Latin clavis meaning key — a self-locking device.

All piercing and tattoo equipment at the arthouse inc are run through a 4 step sterilization process. Once tools are dirty they soak over night in a germephene bath, in the morning they are taken apart and scrubbed a high suds instrument soap. Once all residue is removed from the tools they go through 1 cycle in our sanyo autoclave

once they come out of this autoclave they are sterile but not done yet! They then get packaged into autoclave tubing or pouches.

they then go into our ritter m9 autoclave for one final sterilization

once they run through the m9 the whole sterilization process is done. none of the packages are touched without a gloved hand.
