satpax 1000 canister

 

Q: Can the SatPax® 1000 canister be autoclaved? 
 
A: The canister is made from HDPE (high density polyethylene) and therefore cannot be autoclaved. The canister could melt and contaminate the autoclave chamber. It can be gamma irradiated and Berkshire would recommend 25kGy as a minimum dose.
