SciCan Bravo Autoclave (Sterilizer)

(800) 462-8195


The newest addition to SciCan's autoclave family, the Bravo fractionated vacuum chamber autoclave, continues the SciCan tradition of being at the forefront of innovation and technology. Bravo is a fractionated vacuum sterilizer that incorporates both pre-vac (to remove air) and post-vac (to help drying) cycles to ensure perfect steam penetration for any load+. Bravo is true to the Statim® reputation for speed, providing rapid cycles for unwrapped instruments.

Versatile & Dry

Bravo offers numerous sterilization cycles with a wide array of parameters. This allows the user to choose the appropriate cycle for the load, be it solid instruments, delicate hollow instruments (handpieces, Phaco, etc.) or textiles. The SciCan Dri-TecV drying system provides a perfectly dry load every time. In addition, Bravo's large capacity allows the office to quickly process three wrapped full-size cassettes or up to fifteen pouches.

Safety & Assurance

When the Bravo is initiated, it runs a complete self-diagnostic to ensure that it functions according to pre-set specifications. When the unit is loaded and a cycle is selected, a double locking door mechanism ensures the door is fully closed for complete safety from beginning to end. During a cycle the unit parameters and water levels are constantly monitored and displayed on the large bright LCD for immediate notification of any errors, visually and audibly. For cycle documentation, as required in some regions, Bravo offers an optional internal printer or external data logger.

Single Use Pull'n Push Water System (Filling & Draining)

Unlike many other simple chamber autoclaves, the Bravo uses only fresh distilled water for every cycle. The unit has been designed for the option to pull clean distilled water from a container as far as nine feet away and then push the used water directly to the drain, freeing up valuable time for your staff.

Conforms to International Standards

Bravo is designed for global use, and meets many international and national guidelines and standards+ around the world such as CDC and EN 13060. This allows SciCan to offer a single base unit for customers in over 90 countries. The Bravo has been cleared for marketing in the US by the FDA, in Canada by Health Canada & has CE certification for sale within the European market.
