Autoclaves and centrifuges are essential pieces of lab equipment in academic and university research laboratories. As part of the everyday procedures to sterilize lab media and separate materials, TOMY autoclaves and centrifuges enable educational advancement through scientific study by high school students, undergraduate students, graduate students and academic researchers.

Autoclaves for Academic Institutions & University Research Labs
At its core, the autoclave is a simple device. A combination of heat, pressure and steam work to sterilize lab media and biological waste, killing microorganisms and spores. More details in this article: How Does an Autoclave Work? TOMY Autoclaves are designed simply and reliably. In academia, autoclaves must be intuitive, making it easy for student users to avoid error, prevent injuries, and eliminate excessive maintenance that can cause downtime in your lab.
Top-open lid can be operated easily with a single hand and foot.
Safe Interlocking Lid
Lid interlock mechanism locks lid during operation to prevent users from opening the lid once the autoclave cycle begins.
Intuitive Viewable Monitor
Easy to interpret LED display shows working status for easy monitoring and notifications.
Exhaust Speed Display - Brightness indicates exhaust valve opening increases. No illumination means the exhaust valve is closed.
Cooling Fan Display - Displays when cooling fan(s) are active.
External Sensor Display - Used with the optional external temperature sensor.
Timer - Set time delay.
‘Lid’ Indicator Light - indicates the lid has not been fully closed.
‘Bottle’ Indicator Light - indicates the exhaust bottle has not been fully inserted
‘Water’ Indicator Light - indicates a low water level
Operation Indicator Light - Yellow = Cycle Starting or Ending , Red = Cycle in Progress, pressure in Chamber is greater than Atmospheric Pressure
Temperature Setting - Displays the set temperature.
Time Setting - Displays the set time.
Warming/timer Display - Displays the set temperature for the warming process.
- 1) 12
Liquid Sterilizing Course - prevents boiling over

5 Convenient Sterilization Settings
The intuitive design of the TOMY Autoclave works well in universities as a research-grade autoclave. Research-grade autoclaves function in the same manner to sterilize lab media in academic institutions, without the over-the-top medical-grade autoclave requirements that are unnecessary in academia settings.
In addition to TOMY Autoclaves being part of a safe lab environment, TOMY Autoclaves are also high-performing and energy efficient.
Large Capacity Loads
Rapid Cooling Action
Fine Pressure Adjustment
Centrifuges for Academic Institutions & University Research Labs
In academic/university settings centrifuges are used in chemistry, biology, and other research laboratories for isolating and separating substances in liquid or solid media. Centrifuges perform a basic function relied on as essential tools for lab research. When a centrifuge requires excessive maintenance or isn’t user friendly this every day tool becomes a nuisance more than a benefit.
Simple and compact, this mini centrifuge accommodates one, two, three, or four tubes in any position without a counter balance. Designed for busy academia researchers – close the lid to spin, release hand to stop.
TOMY Multi Spin Mini Centrifuge
A portable centrifuge powered by battery or AC adapter. Great for moving between benches and refrigerated environments.
TOMY MDX-310 Refrigerated Centrifuge
Stackable “rack-in-rotor” system for easy, instantaneous swapping of rotors. Built for speed and function, the MDX-310 accommodates a large array of tubes and sample media.
