MENTOR, OHIO – September 19, 2016– STERIS plc (NYSE:STE) ("STERIS" or the "Company") announces the addition of the Reliance® 300XLS Laboratory Glassware Washer to its line of laboratory glassware and plasticware washing systems. 

This new, advanced, high-performance system is designed to help STERIS research Customers better address their specific automated washing needs, specifically with the ever increasing pressure to reduce footprint and operational costs. 

“Many of our Customers have very limited floor space and require energy-efficient equipment that can keep up with the productivity requirement of busy modern laboratories,’’ says Olivier Van Houtte, product manager for STERIS Life Sciences. “Leveraging 50 years of experience in designing washing systems and conducting extensive performance tests, we developed a product that uses 40% less square feet of floor space than our 400XLS Laboratory Glassware Washer.” 

The Reliance 300XLS Laboratory Glassware Washer is user-friendly, offering a color touch screen microprocessor control system and several pre-set, user-definable cycles to accommodate the various soil conditions encountered in typical laboratories.  The Four-Level Guiding Rail System, combined with a wide variety of loading accessories, also provides all the necessary flexibility required to simultaneously process small and large pieces of glassware simultaneously, thus maximizing the use of the wash chamber. 
Customers can contact their local STERIS Capital Equipment Solutions Representatives for more information or to order.
