Autoclave Bags

Offering great impact and puncture resistance, Fruth’s autoclave bags are made to stand up to the rigors of steam sterilization. Made of virgin polypropylene, our bags are the perfect option for sterilizing medical tools and instruments, as well as biohazard waste. Autoclaving is a common method the medical industry uses to sterilize infectious waste using high temperature, high pressure steam for a specific time. Our autoclave bags are perfect for gravity steam, high vacuum steam, ETO gas and chemical sterilization.
