STERILIZATION IS THE PROCESS OF THE DESTRUCTION AND ELIMINATION OF ALL FORMS OF MICROBIAL LIFE, INCLUDING BACTERIA AND ITS SUBFORMS.
THE LABORATORY AUTOCLAVE CONSISTS OF A VESSEL IN WHICH STEAM FLOWS AT A HIGH PRESSURE WITH A STERILIZATION PURPOSE. SATURATED STEAM WILL IMMEDIATELY CONDENSE AND THUS RELEASING ITS HIGH EVAPORATION HEAT, WHICH IS IN FACT THE DESTRUCTIVE AGENT. IN ORDER THAT STERILIZATION WOULD BE EFFECTIVE, STEAM MUST BE SATURATED AND, CONSEQUENTLY, ALL THE AIR INSIDE THE VESSEL MUST BE PURGED BEFORE INITIALIZING THE PROCESS.
