Laboratory Discard Containers

Manufactured in either stainless steel or aluminium.  These boxes are mostly made bespoke.  Please call with your preferences. 

  • Stainless steel
  • Aluminium
  • Lid seals to reduce risk of leakage during transportation
  • Bespoke sizes

The ESTS range of aluminium discard containers are designed and manufactured in accordance with the applicable requirements of BS2646 - Autoclaves for Sterilization in Laboratories.  They are a robust container supplied with an integral lid seal to reduce risk of spillage either during storage or whilst transferring from laboratory to the autoclave.

To ensure adequate steam penetration to the contents of the container during the autoclave process, the lid must be removed.  If autoclavable plastic bags are used inside the container, the mouth of the bag should also remain unsealed.  Removal of lids for autoclaving is common practice and is as recommended both by BS2646 and Health & Safety Executive HSE guidance on Safe Working and the Prevention of Infection in Clinical Laboratories.  Leaving the lids on will be detrimental to the effectiveness of the sterilization process and risks causing damage to the container.
