Know More About Thermometers

I don’t think that anyone of us has not yet used thermometer so far in their life. It is the most basic and essential medical equipment, which can be found not only in clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, but even on our home too. They are not only used for measuring the temperature of our body, but can also be used to measure the temperature of food and drinks items. Thermometers are also used in measuring important industrial measurements as well.

So ideally we can say that thermometers are the only medical equipment which has so wide reach in our life. Actually there are many different types of thermometer present in market these days. It might confuse a person who is going to purchase it for the first time.

One of my friends who is a clinical thermometer manufacturers only, informed me that while purchasing a thermometer, we need to understand different things about the same. We need to know the associated application of the thermometer which we are purchasing, and then we also need to know about the measurement range of the temperature for which this particular thermometer will work its resolution and accuracy, etc.

Ideally when you go to purchase a thermometer, you must also ask the vendor about the maintenance required to achieve measurements through it. Here are a few different types of thermometer available in the market:

Traditional Thermometer: The very basic and I think the cheapest type of thermometer available in the market is the traditional one. These are ideal for use in our home, and most preferably are most commonly used too in our homes. But you can’t rely on these if you need quite accurate results. Normally they are easy to read and most probably will give output in degree C or degree F as well.

Multiple Sensor Thermometers: They might have two or even sensor associated with them, which can be useful in getting accurate results. They can also be used in simultaneously monitoring two or more different types of environment. They can also be used for both long and short duration as well.

Digital Thermometers: Well with the advancement of technology thermometers has also enhanced themselves to the digital world. They are easy to read, as they have the LCD display unit, compact, accurate and durable as well. Mainly they are becoming popular just because they are very sensitive and quick to obtain results.

Room Thermometer: These devices can measure the room temperatures. They can be fixed into a wall.
Forehead Thermometer: Well these are normally used by child specialists to measure the body temperature of infants. They also give quite accurate results.

Other than above thermometers are also found in different types like Flat Oval Thermometer, Rectal Thermometer, Veterinary Thermometer, Basal Thermometer, Irreversible Temperature Labels Thermometers, Fixed & Wired Probe Thermometers, K-type Thermometers, Data Logging Thermometers, Infrared Thermometers, etc.

If you are unsure of the types of thermometer which can suit your need then it is better to consult a professional for help in choosing them.

Know More About How Does an Autoclave Work?

Do you all know about how an autoclave work does? Well, frankly speaking it works on a simple principle of sterilization. Autoclaves are actually a process which helps to prepare surgical instruments clean and safe before the surgery. In this process we create an environment, which actually helps to kill all the germs or bacteria’s associated with any surgical instruments before using them in surgery.

In this process normally a pre-cleaned medical instrument is heated to the point of sterility where it automatically kills all the hidden (if any) viruses and micro organisms, which are even hidden by microscope as well.

Thus with the help of this process surgeons can be sure that they are getting the right instrument and it has no chance of spreading infections during the surgery. Autoclaves are typically a self sealing pouch made for sterilization purposes, with some kind of external indicators which guides weather the safe and secure sterile environment has reached or not in the autoclave procedure.

Well as per one of my friends who is actually associated with an autoclaves manufacturers  company only, the concept of autoclave is more or less similar to the one of pressure cooker which we normally uses at our house, on a daily basis. As per him, it was in late ninetieth century when Charles Chamberlain, a famous microbiologist, saw this concept of pressure cooker and applied the same to the medical and scientific sector to clean the surgical instruments. 

Today, you all can see the huge impact and need of the sterilization in our daily life. Consider the case of the tattoo industry, their instrument also need either sterilization or the disposable alternate of the same for the safety of their customers. Thus the use of autoclaves is a must for them.

Frankly speaking I was not at all aware about one of the recent uses of this autoclaves technique. As per one of my friends, this technique is being used in sterilizing medical wastes, so that it can be made safe enough before it can be added to the normal municipal water supply system. Thus you all can easily understand the usefulness of this process in our daily life.

Well, to be very frank today is the age of disposable things, and medical industry, doctors, surgeons, etc. are giving more emphasis on using those one time use products only, and then they prefer to destroy the same with the help of disposable destroyers. But this does not mean that the demand of autoclaves has been minimized, they still have the demand in the industry.

Well, autoclaves can be found in different sizes, like from a small sized which can fit on your table, to an autoclave with oven size, which can be used to sterilize mass equipments together. As per your specific requirement autoclave manufacturers can provide you the same.
