Customer success storie

From our US  distributor Neutec Group Inc.

Listen to what Teresa Blakely at Oklahoma State University has to say about her PC 10 Media Preparator and PS900 Media Filler.




The working principle of the autoclave is based on the work of the French physicist Denis Papin, who further developed a pressure vessel developed by Robert Hooke in 1679 into a Papin pot (Steam Digester).Papin went to London in 1675 and became an associate of Robert Boyle and 1679 assistant to Robert Hooke. In 1679 he invented cooking under increased vapor pressure. For this he constructed a steam pressure cooking pot, the Papinschen pot, which shattered in the first demonstration before the Royal Society. Only after Papin had invented the safety valve, his saucepan worked safe and received the patent in 1681 in Paris.
