FOB5 Stand-alone Lab Sterilizer presents a great flexibility of use, ranging from quality assurance laboratories in pharmaceutical or food industries, to BSL3 – 4 laboratories in research centres and/or hospitals.

The possible application of FOB5 series of autoclaves can be:

  • Microbiology and analytical labs.
  • Research institutes and examination agencies.
  • Bio-technologies and life sciences.
  • Animal facility and clinical diagnostic labs.
  • Pharmaceutical, food, chemistry industries, Q.C. labs.
  • Agricultural, environmental and veterinary labs.

As all the autoclaves of Fedegari Lab Division, FOB5 has a modular design which allows a high flexibility of use for different loads and treatments. Please, click on the link “recommended kits” on the right to check out all the possible configurations referred to FOB5 series.


FOB5 autoclave series has a wide range of chamber volumes and come with both single and double vertical sliding door:

  • FOB5C-TS: 325 liters – single vertical sliding door.
  • FOB5-TS: 456 liters – single vertical sliding door.
  • FOB5S-TS: 481 liters – double vertical sliding door.
  • FOB5SL-TS: 590 liters – double vertical sliding door.
  • FOB5L-TS: 615 liters – single vertical sliding door.
  • FOB5SXL-TS: 700 liters – double vertical sliding door.
  • FOB5XL-TS: 730 liters – single vertical sliding door.

FOB5 series can be designed with a single or double stainless steel sealing flange (BIOSEAL), making it suitable for laboratory risk category L3 and L4 and operating theater. FOB5 Lab Sterilizers have two high-efficiency internal 316L stainless steel plates which can be used as heat-exchanger system for steam preheating, to cool the chamber temperature down by using cold water.
Moreover – as an option – these plates can be used to perform final drying.

FOB5 autoclaves are made of 316L stainless steel as well as pneumatic valves and hydraulic components.

Full and easy accessibility to technical area from the front and lateral side allows service and regular maintenance. External trolleys are fully compatible with FGW Fedegari Glassware Washer Series to assure integration between cleaning and sterilization processes in your laboratory
