"We've been using the TOMY autoclave for over a year now, with consistent results. The small footprint is a feature I really appreciate. The ease of use makes training new users very easy and user errors virtually non-existent. Overall, it was a great addition to our lab space."

"I've had a Tomy autoclave for +20 years and practically worship the thing. Every lab I've ever worked in has either had one already, or I've recommended one to purchase ASAP."

"It's a forward autoclave. It's so easy to use. It doesn't require any fancy plumbing. It's very straightforward and can handle the volume that I need to start up. At the end of the day, it's an instrument that you can rely on. Now I have an associate helping me. Training her is a breeze."

Patrick Fernandez
Research Scientist, Protein Evolution, Inc. (PEI)

"The biggest benefit [of the autoclave] was the footprint size. We like the way the lid is designed, it is a bit more space-saving as opposed to a swing-out lid. We are limited in our space, so that made a difference. The user interface is pretty easy and simple to understand. Press a button and start. It's pretty straightforward."

Randall Zondervan
Vice President, ProbioFerm

"I like how the autoclave is really easy to use. With crank-down models it takes a lot of time, but the TOMY model has less checks and with the click of a button it's ready to go. It is also really easy to clean with the built-in exhaust bottle."

Production Manager, Gelantis

"There are many things I like about TOMY autoclaves- they are nice, quiet, and compact with an amazing capacity for having such a small footprint. Many great features like the easy-open foot pedal and liquid/dry cycle options too. I'm a big fan of the product!"

Find the Accessories Your Lab Needs

SX-Series Lab Autoclaves come standard with 2 short baskets (the autoclaves fit 3 stacked in the chamber). We offer additional accessories to help your lab run efficiently.

Short Basket – The small SX-500 and SX-700 autoclaves are equipped with two perforated steel baskets that can be stacked. The SX-Series Autoclaves are designed to accommodate three such stackable baskets, enhancing the loading capacity by 50%. These baskets facilitate steam penetration, ensuring effective sterilization of small glassware and instruments.

Tall Basket – Fit large items such as bioreactors/fermenters and bio-waste into the perforated steel with a solid-bottom basket.

Stainless Bucket – This stackable, solid stainless steel bucket is ideal for autoclaving liquids and items of medium size. It effectively prevents liquids from overflowing into the autoclave chamber, thus safeguarding the components from potential damage.

Data Output Printer – Print sterilization records. Including set and actual parameters of sterilization program, temperature, pressure, and summary. Includes 1 printer paper roll. Refills of printer paper are available – 10 roll package.

Temperature Sensor – Connect the optional external temperature sensor to monitor the temperature of the items being sterilized inside the chamber.  This is intended to indicate the internal temperature of any liquid media as contained in a fermentor or bioreactor, or similar.
