The importance of sterilization is essential to good laboratory
practice, particularly in biotechnology, pharmaceutical and clinical
laboratories. Of all sterilization methods, high pressure steam
(autoclave) is the most widely used because of its efficacy, speed and
Panasonic MLS-Series top-loading autoclaves provide a safe, reliable
high pressure steam sterilizing environment within a self-contained
unit that is particularly easy to use. These reliable, energy saving
autoclaves are ideal for a wide range of applications.
High pressure autoclaves are the most popular method of sterilization
used in today's laboratories. Autoclaves are used in a wide variety of
Large Diameter Chamber
Microprocessor Temperature Control
Sterilizing temperature is controlled by microprocessor to within
+2°C/-0°C of the set temperature in the range of 105°C to 135°C.
Process Voice Notification
A new feature the MLS series includes is voice notification of the
system process. Each step of the process is notified via a pre-recorded
voice message, allowing the end user to hear the process as it is
happening from across the room.
Double Interlocking Structure
To ensure the safe operation of this high-temperature, high-pressure
autoclave, the chamber and the open/close lever are controlled by a
double interlock system dependent on temperature and pressure sensors.
In this way, it is impossible to open the autoclave until temperature
and pressure levels are safe.
Optional Process Printer (Model MLS-37PR)
Process documentation is available via an optional built-in type
thermal printer. The printer prints out the process run results of
temperature, pressure, vs. time. Each printout is date and time stamped
for future reference.
Optional Object Temperature Sensor (Model MLS-37SB)
Measures temperature of items in the autoclave chamber and sets the
sterilization timer accordingly. Suitable for materials that heat up
more slowly than the chamber, such as resins. After installation, the
autoclave control system can be switched between this sensor and the
Air Vent Control
The exhaust valve release temperature can be set to allow automatic
release after the sterilizing cycle has been completed. The setting
range is from +0°C to 25°C above boiling point to suit the items being
sterilized (patent pending).
Ergonomic Design Panasonic has included a host of features to make this autoclave user friendly.
Pre-sets are programmed for sterilizing, preparing and maintaining
culture media. Four courses with three variations offer a total of 12
