How does an autoclave sterilize?
Steam sterilization is accomplished by exposing items to be sterilized with steam under pressure. Steam enhances heat’s capability to destroy germs by lowering the temperature and time necessary to denature or coagulate proteins from the germs. Steam sterilization cycles typically have three stages, including conditioning, vulnerability, and exhaust.
