Lag Time: The time dealay between the first sensor reaching the set temperature to the time by which all the sensor reaching the set temperature.

Equilibrium time is the time by which all the sensors attains the set temperature and the operation cycle begins only after reaching the equilibrium time.

Hope this helps.

How we can calculate lag time and equilibrium time during autoclave validation.

Hi,

Check this link from this site which may be useful to you

Equilibrium time is the time between the first sensor reach 121.0 and the last sensor reach 121.0
Lag time is the time between first sensor reach the set temperature and the last sensor reach the set temperature.
If there is any wrong please share me.

Thanking you.
