The Rodwell Sapphire 440 is a large Autoclave for sterilisation of items or tools within the laboratory. It produces 45 litres worth of steam per cycle, allowing it to sterilise up to 96 one litre media bottles with a working temperature from 7 degrees up to 138 degrees Celsius.
The MP25 controller on the sapphire 440 has 25 programs that the autoclave can carry out. The laboratory supervisor can also program and store these settings for optimal use.
The Smart Card Access System allows only select pre-program cycles to operate unless the laboratory supervisor requests otherwise. You can also deactivate this access system if you’re happy for anyone to operate this device.
This Rodwell Sapphire Autoclave 440 model comes with the USB Memory Logging extra feature. For quick and efficient downloading of log data the MP25 is equipped with a USB port for direct data transfer straight to a Rodwell USB Key. The data can then be transferred to a PC for analysis on SmartLog Software.

There’s a sterilise timer as part of the controller, it begins counting upon activation by the presence of the load. Turning this feature on or off prevents the sterilise timer from starting until both the chamber and load have reached set point temperature.
A Free Steam Timer, which is adjustable by time, holds the chamber at approximately 100°C (without pressurising) for a pre-determined time. This occurs during the heating period, allowing effective steam penetration into the load.
The Delayed Start, 24 hour clock timer option allows the autoclave to be pre-programmed at a pre-determined time. So, the autoclave completes a cycle just before the lab arrives for work the following morning for pre-prepared warm media.
You can adjust if you want the autoclaved contents to stay warm by switching the Adjustable Stay Warm option either on or off. This keeps the chamber warm at the end of the cycle for pourable media. It is also adjustable to allow the operator to select the optimum temperature.
Instrument Cycles for programs 21 to 24 only, exhausts the chamber at the end of the cycle for both dryer glassware and dryer instruments upon completion.
The Rodwell Sapphire 440 is Self Diagnostic, meaning it notifies the operator of any faults. The specific nature of many faults display clearly on the LCD control panel if they occur.
A Sterilise Fault Warning notifies the operator if there has either been a power supply problem or if the temperature either has not or is not maintaining during the cycle.
