Question
Dear Prof Walter

Are there portable sterilisation machines for surgical and medical instruments?
If yes,who are the major manufacturers?

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Yes there  are. Portable autoclaves are really pressure cookers. Most pressure cookers are made by a Company called All American in Wisconsin. I cannot find the address however.
There is also a portable sterilizer that uses chemicals now in the try-out stage. It was made for the US Army
