The following plastics can be autoclaved multiple times:
ETFE, PFA, PTFE, FEP, E-CTFE, PMP/TPX, PP, SI, PVDF

Polycarbonate (PC) and polysulphone (PSU) can be autoclaved but then the mechanical stability is decreased. That can lead to material failures if the material is stressed high-mechanically for example during centrifugation.

Recommended autoclaving-cycle: 20 minutes at 121 °C, 1 bar

  1. Material which should be autoclaved should be well-cleaned before sterilisation
  2. Cleaning materials should be rinsed with distilled water
