TOMY SX series autoclaves for viral inactivation

Wednesday, 01 April, 2020 | Supplied by: Bio-Strategy Pty Ltd


An autoclave is a device that uses steam to sterilise equipment and other objects. This means that all bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores are inactivated. For those in research, TOMY offers its SX series of compact top-loading autoclaves to meet users’ sterilisation requirements.

Available in three capacities — 44, 58 and 79 L — the units take up little space and do not require expensive plumbing as they have a built-in steam exhaust bottle. Powered by 240 V 50 Hz (10 or 15 A model dependent) the units require no specialised electrical supply. With a selectable temperature range from 45 to 135°C , the unit can be programmed for the user’s appropriate sterilising course whether it be liquid sterilising, standard sterilising, sterilising with a warming course or heating with a warming course (for dispensing media). The last run memory maintains the last program settings selected.

When the unit has cooled to safe opening levels (lid safety interlocked), the foot pedal releases the lid lock, ensuring lid opening with minimal effort. The cooling fan provides rapid air cooling of the chamber vessel, which should result in shorter/faster cycle times. The LED display shows current status of the autoclave and the auto-variable exhaust speed function allows the exhaust valve to open automatically after completion of the sterilisation cycle. Safety is ensured with lid interlock and water level detection preventing dry heating. Options include printer, external load temperature sensor, data output and additional baskets.

The units are provided with a two-year parts and labour warranty.
