-auroclave is similar to the pressure cooker present at your home , but it is a large container with valves to controll pressure and thermometer for checking temperature.

-it is used for sterilization of surgical material ,lab material from microbiology laboratory etc which are not effected by heat and pressure like cloth ,steel scalpels etc.

- it works based on the principle that most of the micro organisms die at high temperature and pressure ,because of coagulation of their proteins at that temperature.

- micro organisms do need their proteins to perform normal metabolism. So when their proteins are coagulated they die .
