Sterilization autoclaves are widely used in microbiology, medicine, podiatry, tattooing, body piercing, veterinary science, mycology, dentistry, and prosthetics fabrication. They vary in size and function depending on the media to be sterilized.
A notable growing application of autoclaves is the pre-disposal treatment and sterilization of waste material, such as pathogenic hospital waste. Machines in this category largely operate under the same principles as conventional autoclaves in that they are able to neutralize potentially infectious agents by utilizing pressurized steam and superheated water. A new generation of waste converters is capable of achieving the same effect without a pressure vessel to sterilize culture media, rubber material, gowns, dressing, gloves, etc. It is particularly useful for materials which cannot withstand the higher temperature of a hot air oven. - Wikipedia

F0 and Sterility Assurance Level (SAL) and D-value - what they mean and why they matter.
F0 Value: Typically, sterilisation is done at the standard temperature of 121 degC. If a product needs to be sterilised at a temperature other than 121 degC, then the sterilisation time must be changed. Read more ...
SAL and D-Value: Generally in sterilisation it is required to reach a SAL of 10^6 and an additional six log reduction. Read more ...
