Latest Reviews

We chose Astell because they were willing to discuss and agree a user specification for a smaller unit than would be the norm with highly exacting requirements. The autoclave is reliable and consistent and the quality of the build is excellent


Happy to report that the Astell autoclave purchased earlier this year is going well and has been a wonderful new addition to the TCC Laboratory equipment.


Astell have given me a unique benchtop autoclave, one modified specially for my work. It is fully programmable and I can run different timed Hydrothermal Synthesis cycles up to a maximum of 10 hours. It’s small size also means it takes up little space on the benchtop – perfect for our laboratory in St James’s University Hospital.


"We have been running four large Astell autoclaves in our media and waste processing facility since 2009. Their level of service has been excellent and repairs are always carried out swiftly with minimum downtime.."


"The School of Environment and Life Sciences based at the University of Salford have recently acquired an Astell Swiftlock autoclave to process waste generated from teaching activities. The service and information provided by Astell has been excellent and allowed us to make an informed choice on specific requirements. The technical support was superb with answers provided to our queries at all stages of the procurement process. I would highly recommend Astell to other educational institutes.."
