Germinator 500 sterilizer

  • Operating temperature: 233°C (500°F)
  • 90 day warranty

The Germinator 500 decontaminates micro dissecting metal instruments and can sterilize instrument tips. The Germinator 500 incorporates a stainless steel well that is filled with tiny glass beads and heated to 500°F. Dry heat decontamination occurs through heat transfer from the glass beads to the portion of the instrument in contact with the beads. Small instrument tips such as scissors, forceps, scalpels and tweezers are decontaminated in about 15 seconds while larger instruments may take as long as one minute. (Please note that the Germinator 500 should not be used as a substitute for traditional methods of terminal sterilization.)

All of our equipment is used and reconditioned. Our technicians test all equipment to confirm that it operates properly and to the manufacturer’s specifications. While we can’t test for a specific analytical application, we will do our best to simulate the conditions under which the equipment will be run. If you have particular testing requirements or requests please let us know and we’ll work with you to make sure these requirements are addressed during testing.

The photos above are representative. Please bear in mind that the equipment shown is currently in storage in our warehouse and that in addition to testing each machine we will clean all the equipment thoroughly prior to shipment. We often have multiple units of each model in stock and sometimes we're unable to feature photos of every single unit. At your request, we can provide photos of the equipment in your order after it has been tested and cleaned.
