In MICROJET autoclave, all energy required for sterilization is delivered directly to the medium. Microwave beam heats inserted media instantly and uniformly throughout the volume of the liquid.
Compared with conventional steam autoclave, sterilization process time is reduced 5 – fold, and exposure to high temperature is very short (60-90 seconds). Decomposition of microbial nutrient is limited to a minimum.
