Important information

As a key supplier to the NHS, PHE and other critical life science sectors during the Covid-19 crisis, LTE is committed to ensuring the uninterrupted supply of its sterilization, decontamination, as well as laboratory thermal equipment including incubators, ovens and drying and solution/blanket warming cabinets.

Our UK production site remains fully operational and can offer some products from stock or on shortened lead times. Our Service Centre is continuing to operate a UK-wide team of engineers to carry out a full range of maintenance, service and testing to UKAS and HTM guidelines on both LTE and non-LTE brands of laboratory autoclaves, porous load sterilizers and washer-disinfectors.

Labclave 23 Autoclave

The Labclave 23 is LTE Scientific’s smallest and most economic laboratory autoclave.

With 8 preset cycles plus one programmable cycle, the Labclave 23 has been designed to offer effective and fast sterilization of many laboratory load types, and taking up a floor area of just 460mm x 395mm, Labclave 23 has to be one of the most compact units available.

Our Labclave 23 offers several safety features including pressure, temperature and timed door safety systems to ensure the door cannot be opened until the chamber has reached atmospheric pressure and 90C. A low water protection device is also fitted to prevent damage to the heating element.

Suitable for many laboratory sterilization applications, the Labclave 23 is one of the smallest units offered by LTE Scientific with the same reliability and flexibility of larger sterilization autoclaves.

Post vacuum system
Non-liquid cycles can achieve faster cycle times thanks to the built-in vacuum pump which will aid the cooling process and help dissipate moisture from the load.
Thermal Paper Printer
The thermal paper printer comes as standard on the Labclave 23 for additional peace of mind, this will print out all cycle details and operational data as the program progresses.
