    Two bottles of dextrose saline solution associated with sterilisation failure, made by Evans Medical Ltd., Liverpool, 1971. Both bottles were autoclaved at the same time, but due to a machine fault some of the bottles failed to be effectively sterilised and became contaminated with bacteria, causing the death of five patients in what became known as the ‘Devonport Incident’.
