Laboratory washers are used anywhere that sterilized labware is required, which includes a wide range of research and study. Washing by hand leads to broken glassware, contamination, and delays during important experiments. This increases potential hazard to workers, jeopardizing studies, and worsening overall conditions in the lab. The laboratory glassware washer has proven essential for highly functioning and productive laboratories.

From standard-compact and under-counter models to high-capacity floor standing models, there are a variety of dishwashers available to choose that meet your specific needs. These machines can come equipped with wheels, so they are freestanding and moveable. Fixed variants can be integrated into a pre-existing dishwashing area, allowing you to choose a model that best suits your needs. Having either a single door or pass-through openings allows for easy loading and unloading, while interchangeable racks give you the freedom to load different types of glassware. Some key specifications to account for are:

  • Wash cycles and programs – Washers developed in recent years often include programmable controls and washer settings. Some are even network-enabled, so that you can control them from anywhere in the lab.
  • Water temperature range – Up to 95°C (203°F) is generally required to meet scientific standards
  • Integrated drying mechanism, such as a high-efficiency particulate air filtration system (HEPA) – Hands-off drying helps speed up the overall wash cycle, while minimizing the risk of contamination after glassware has been washed and rinsed.
  • Lab dishwashers are manufactured at significantly higher standards of quality, precision, and durability than household dishwashers, and are designed specifically to clean the types of materials found in scientific settings. Choosing a laboratory glassware washer that fits your needs is very important, luckily most companies design their models to come in different sizes, offer varying load capacities, include interchangeable racks, operate efficiently, and provide easy to use digital interface systems.

    Don’t forget to keep in mind your laboratory’s output, and that your machines washing and drying specifications are strong enough for the chemicals and residues used in your lab.

    A Lab Dishwasher To Fit Your Needs

    Lab dishwashers offer a range of accommodations, it just matters on what your specific requirements may be. Whether you’re deciding based on the amount of space in the laboratory, which glassware needs to be cleaned daily, or how much energy the washer uses, there are important specifications to consider. Maybe you’re deciding based on all three factors. Keeping these things in mind will help you decide what kind of washer fits best:


    • Standard and large capacity washers vary in water usage
    • There’s a big difference between a washer that uses 10 gallons of water to fill and one that takes 20 gallons to fill. A wash program may consist of 5 or 6 fills, so water consumption is an important factor to consider.


    Glassware washers are designed to be highly efficient, saving you time, energy, and water.

    • Delay-start options so that the washer will operate during off-peak hours, when electricity is less expensive.
    • Wash cycle speeds, which can range from 1 hour to 3 hours, based on water heat up time, and circulation/spray methods

    Type of glassware:
    A lab dishwasher should accommodate every type of glassware you use, now and in the future.

    • Spindle racks for narrow-neck glassware
    • Open racks for baskets that hold wide-mouth and specialized glassware

    Laboratory standards:

    • Constructed with proper material, such as stainless steel
    • Chamber and water path should be able to handle high temperatures, 90°C-95°C (194°F-203°F)
    • Wash programs available for both organic and inorganic compounds
    • Pumps with higher circulation rate than home dishwasher
    • Temperature and cycle time options for specific loads/types of glassware
    • Program designed to track cleanliness using EPA methods
    • Monitors installed to check water temperature and water flow dispensation, amongst other parameters that guarantee proper cleaning
    • Overall Volume of washer while operating, preventing any loud and annoying moments to your work day

    The best dishwasher offers increased productivity in the laboratory and an optimal cleaning performance, minimizing cost and environmental impact.


    Central Laboratory vs. Point-of-Use Washer

    Here is an example of two different laboratory washer set-ups to consider:

    A central laboratory dishwasher is usually installed in a separate room for joint-use between several laboratories. These washers include a great range of features similar to any other model, but require a maximum load for full water consumption efficiency. The centralized washer allows that one specific room be designated for washing, but may cause sharing issues between labs, such as keeping track of glassware, dealing with lost items, and scheduling use.

    Meanwhile, a point-of-use washer offers those same features without any of the aforementioned hassle. The convenience of having your own undercounter or freestanding model is unbeatable, and is designed for durability and longevity inside the lab. Whether you need one at your workstation, or wheeled between stations as the day progresses, these point-of-use glassware washers increase productivity and minimize pain points.

    Operating Lease

    This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.

    Sale Leaseback

    If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
