Checking Autoclave Temperatures

Dear Lab Guy, We use total immersion mercury thermometers for checking our autoclave temperatures. Can these readings be taken right after the cycle is done, or does the thermometer need to be read at room temperature?

What is the Difference Between Partial Immersion and Total Immersion?

Dear Lab Guy, I’m trying to buy a thermometer and I see reference to partial immersion and total immersion. I have no idea what that means! For total immersion do you need to completely immerse the thermometer? How far do you have to immerse a partial immersion thermometer? Sincerely, Dominick
