Hello Everyone.

I'm about to add something really spooky to this discussion.

I'm from Venezuela. A year ago, a friend's mom died after an autoclave explosion. She had burns in 95% of her body and died a week later in the ICU. Of course my friend engaged in a legal battle with the laboratory since everyone believes (other employees) that the equipment wasn't receiving proper maintenance-----Accident had place since the Autoclave beeped signaling sterilization process was completed, and it was not.-- My friend needs help since there are not real autoclave specialists in the country and firemen are not that trained either. So far no one has been able to identify the model of said equipment, so I'm attaching some pics. If any of you could just look at them, and give some info that'll be great.

I have some other pics, please email me if you are interested in helping out, or if you have any info regarding a specialist we might talk to.

Do not think this is some kind of joke, is not. This a very unfortunate event my friend had to deal with. She lost her mother, a loving 56 years old woman.

Thank you for your support.
