The sterilization cabinet should be regularly maintained and maintained during use
Microorganisms exist in our surroundings. The reason why microorganisms are called microorganisms is that we cannot observe them with the naked eye, and most microorganisms are pathogenic, both invisible and possibly pathogenic, it really makes us "hard to prevent" in our daily lives. From the perspective of preventing infection, some places we often come into contact, in particular, one member is to disinfect and sterilize the used items and the surrounding environment. In the hospital, we often see sterilization cabinets, there are some tools that doctors and nurses often use in the cabinet.
The sterilization cabinet is a commonly used sterilization equipment that requires high sterility in laboratories and hospitals. The processing capacity of the sterilization cabinet is much larger than that of the sterilization pot, and its own capacity is very large, but the principle is the same, they all heat water to generate steam and kill microorganisms. The operation will be more complicated. It is still somewhat different from the sterilization pot. The price is also much more expensive. The equipment still needs to be maintained regularly during use, in order to avoid affecting the sterilization effect, it will also shorten the service life. The following mainly talks about the daily maintenance and maintenance of the sterilization cabinet.
1. Add an appropriate amount of water to the sterilization cabinet, do not exceed the specified water level, after adding water, wrap the instrument that needs sterilization with professional paper, and do not put the instrument in directly, in this way, the purpose of sterilization is not achieved, and for those who need to be filled with culture medium or bottles need to be inoculated, they should use multi-layer gauze to tie the mouth of the bottle, and then put it in professional paper for sterilization.
2. Cover the lid tightly and start heating. When heating, open the exhaust valve. A lot of air-conditioning inside needs to be discharged. If the temperature does not go up, pay attention to the temperature and pressure changes when heating, when the temperature reaches 70 degrees, the exhaust valve is turned off to continue to heat up. When it reaches 120 degrees, adjust the power switch, properly open the exhaust valve, and control the temperature to remain constant.
3. When the sterilization time reaches the sterilization cabinet, it starts to cool down. When cooling, you can directly turn off the power supply and open the exhaust valve slightly. If you want to accelerate the cooling, you can water it with water, but to unplug the power supply to avoid electric shock, this is to pay attention to, safety first.
