Some members of the Science Laboratory Department (SLT) of Accra Technical University have presented a 75 litre semi-automatic autoclave steriliser to help with microbiological sterilizations in the university.
In a brief presentation at the SLT Lab on Monday, December 21, 2020, Head of Department of SLT, Dr. George Osei-Adjei, stated that the presentation was possible due to the benevolence of some members of the department who saw the need for the equipment and contributed monies to purchase same. He added that the machine will be of great use to the Science Laboratory Technology and Medical Laboratory Technology Departments and the University Clinic for all microbiological sterilisations.
Autoclaves are also known as steam sterilizers and are typically used for healthcare or industrial applications. An autoclave is used to sterilise surgical equipment, laboratory instruments, pharmaceutical items, and other materials.
