Autoclaves and centrifuges for Academic Institutions

TOMY autoclaves and centrifuges are designed for simple, long-lasting operation. With intuitive functions and a compact, top-loading design, TOMY is known worldwide for quality, easy-to-use lab equipment that lasts.

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.

Simple Operation

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.


    • 1
      Exhaust Speed Display - Brightness indicates exhaust valve opening increases. No illumination means the exhaust valve is closed.
    • 2
      Cooling Fan Display - Displays when cooling fan(s) are active.
    • 4
      Timer - Set time delay.

Safety Indicators

Highly visible indicator lights to keep autoclave running properly.
    • 5
      ‘Lid’ Indicator Light - indicates the lid has not been fully closed.
    • 6
      ‘Bottle’ Indicator Light - indicates the exhaust bottle has not been fully inserted
    • 7
      ‘Water’ Indicator Light - indicates a low water level
    • 8
      Operation Indicator Light - Yellow = Cycle Starting or Ending , Red = Cycle in Progress, pressure in Chamber is greater than Atmospheric Pressure
    • 9
      Temperature Setting - Displays the set temperature.
    • 10
      Time Setting - Displays the set time.
    • 11
      Warming/timer Display - Displays the set temperature for the warming process.

Select Cycle & Cycle Status

5 Convenient Sterilization Settings
    • 1) 12
      Liquid Sterilizing Course - prevents boiling over
    • 2) 13
      Sterilizing Course - normal sterilization
    • 3) 14
      Sterilizing - Warming Course - prevent coagulation, hardening, or freezing of culture media after the sterilization ends
    • 4) 15
      Heating – Warming Course - provides super comfort and convenience in heating and dissolving or eliminating culture media.
    • 5) 16
      Memory Recall - repeats previous settings
    • 17
      Start/Stop Buttons - Lights when Stop button is pressed.

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

Large Capacity Loads

SX-model autoclaves can stack up to 2 buckets or 3 baskets in the chamber to maximize loads. (SX-700 can accommodate up to 12 pieces of 1000 mL flasks or 27 pieces of 300 mL beakers in one energy-saving load.)


Rapid Cooling Action

Rapid Cooling Action

Dual-fan cooling function reduces cooling time by 42% compared to non-fan equipped autoclaves shortening time between cycles and reducing the possibility of burns.


Fine Pressure Adjustment

Fine Pressure Adjustment

Automatic fine exhausting helps to correct any imbalance in temperature and pressure during sterilization, maintaining optimal chamber conditions and energy use.

TOMY Autoclaves for Academia

TOMY Autoclaves are a safe, affordable option for academic institutions and universities. Compared to medical-grade autoclaves, TOMY Autoclaves are easier to set up – just plug in and add water, making the initial installation costs associated with the plumbing and hard wiring lower than that of conventional autoclaves.

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.

TOMY Centrifuges for Academia

TOMY Centrifuges are a safe, affordable option for academic institutions and universities. TOMY Centrifuges are designed simply and reliably, using high quality parts that stand the test of time and rigorous, daily use. The durability of high-quality TOMY Centrifuges makes them an affordable option when starting up a new lab or updating your lab’s current equipment in a university setting. The intuitively designed TOMY Centrifuges help avoid error, prevent injuries and eliminate issues that can cause downtime in your lab.
