With an improved capacity and user-friendly design, the TOMY Autoclave FLS-1000 makes large volume sterilization easier and accommodates unique shaped articles like bioreactors, fermenters and animal cages. The FLS-1000 also supports you for secure sterilization in compliance with your facilities’ guidelines and global standards like GLP / GMP.
Do you have any experience that flasks and bottles can not be accommodated as desired when you sterilize a large amount of liquid such as culture media and solvents? The FLS-1000 has a large chamber dimension of 45cm so that it can accommodate 5L × 4 flasks easier with a option flask stand and 500ml × 17 bottles with a standard stainless basket.
There is Heat Transfer Time Lag when using the steam autoclave. The display shows the ambient temperature inside the chamber, but the temperature of articles to be sterilized arrives later than the display temperature. This is called “Heat Transfer Time Lag“.
For more secure sterilization, it is recommended to add the Heat Transfer Time Lag to the sterilization time.
The TOMY Autoclave FLS-1000 can check the temperature of articles to be sterilized with an optional External Temperature Sensor. The detected temperature by the External Temperature Sensor can be used to count down the sterilization time (e.g. 20 min.) . That means sterilization will be done with the temperature of articles inside the chamber automatically without calculating Heat Transfer Time Lag manually by yourself.
The detected temperature also works to open the lid safely after sterilization. The lid can be opened after the temperature of articles drops down* and it prevents the sudden boiling of liquid sample.
These features help you to save your time to decide the sterilization time and to reduce troubles of spillage for media or solvent.
Do you have any experience that you were worried if the sterilization was performed as set when you use a shared autoclave in a remote wash room or an autoclave room?
The Optional Printer can print out the operating parameters, chamber temperature, chamber pressure, temperature of articles to be sterilized * and sterilization cycle process.
Fine Pressure Adjustment
Secure Sterilization condition is created by saturated steam that temperature and pressure keep the balance for a certain time.
The FLS-1000 heats water in the chamber and create steam. The generated steam is discharged with air from the chamber to approach the saturated steam condition.
When air remains in the chamber, the balance of temperature and pressure breaks and it makes pressure rise.
Fine Pressure Adjustment monitors temperature and pressure,works automatically to remove residual air from the chamber, and adjusts pressure to approach ideal condition for more effective sterilization.
Cooling Fan System
The FLS-1000 is standard-equipped with a dual-fan cooling system, shortening overall operation time. The Cooling Fan System reduces cooling time by 60 min.* compared to non-fan operation. It will save your time and give you more to focus on other things.
Easy loading / unloading of the articles
Easily-accessible chamber allows easy cleaning
FLS-1000 is designed to avoid steam from the chamber. So, operator opens the lid without steam contact.
A top-open lid, which can be operated easily with a single hand and a single foot, is provided. To open the lid, the lid lock is released by stepping on the foot pedal locates at the bottom while pressing the lid down. The lid can be opened with minimal effort owing to mechanical assistance. In addition, the lid can be closed easily just by pressing it down.
Water level indicator of the chamber bottom plate allows operator to check the appropriate water level in the chamber visually and prevent the articles from soaking in sterilizing water.
The exhaust tank turns on red when water should be drained.
“Double handle” is provided which keeps stability of large caliber basket and bucket.
Bottom up designed basket prevents from soaking in sterilizing water.
Stackable protrusion shape
<Not in use>
One-touch coupler for installation of the temperature sensor for articles to be sterilized and the external temperature sensor.
The sensors can be removed from or installed in the FLS-1000 by the use of the coupler.
