We are considering buying an All-American 25X stericlave from Fungi 
Perfecti, for use in a small insect pathology laboratory.  They are a lot 
cheaper than small horizontal autoclaves, but we have never seen one.

Has anybody had any experience with them?  Are they reliable and accurate in 
terms of temperature regulation?  What about throughput?  We will be mainly 
autoclaving 500 ml Schott (media) bottles, 250 and 500 ml conical flasks, and 
small bags and jars of grain.  Occasionall smaller or larger bottles/flasks.

Any comments will be greatly appreciated.
