Progressive Recovery, Inc. (PRI) is excited to announce a partnership with Astell Scientific, Ltd. to be the exclusive sales and service distributor of Astell’s steam sterilizer autoclave line, from benchtop to large single and double door floor models, in the United States.

Astell offers a full range of autoclaves from 33 to 2000 L, with features designed to support many different applications. Astell has been a trusted brand for over 130 years, with installations in over 100 countries. Astell’s autoclaves will be a perfect fit for many markets where PRI’s Bio division is already established, such as the veterinary, university research, medical, pharmaceutical and other containment research facilities.

Astell’s autoclaves accompany PRI Bio’s existing families of biological sterilization systems, including effluent decontamination systems, tissue digesters, pH neutralization, and regulated waste treatment systems.

In addition, PRI’s Service Solutions arm will now support all new and existing Astell autoclave installations in the United States. With one of the largest in-house service teams in the biowaste treatment industry, PRI Service Solutions gives customers a high level of responsiveness.

“Astell’s autoclave line is a perfect fit for us. Many of the customers we already work with will purchase an EDS or a Digester, but also have a number of autoclaves onsite. It makes sense for us to expand the offering for these customers, giving them a more streamlined source for all their sterilization needs. The same goes for service – when we’re already on-site annually to inspect and maintain their equipment, validate filtration systems and test their vessels – we often have users who ask us if we can service their autoclaves while we’re there. Now, we can,” says Jim Laarman, CEO, PRI.
