Important note: Magnaclave is no longer being produced, and most crucial parts (like door, door mechanism, door handle, and many more) are no longer available. We do have a bunch of parts available (like temp and pressure gauges, door gasket etc) ..., and we happen to have 2 complete magnaclave refurbished sterilizers available to be sold, but be aware that lots of crucial components are no longer available. This may not be so smart to purchase a steriliser knowing that crucial parts are n longer available. Instead, we recommend the tuttnauer 3870M (or others) Click for price
