Ozone and UV Sterilizer
The CoolCLAVE™ Plus is a unique and innovative laboratory bench top sterilizer, and a substantial improvement on the original and successful CoolCLAVE™. The new CoolCLAVE™ Plus uses ozone gas and UV light to clean laboratory tools, especially ones involved in sensitive experiments or assays, and it has an added heating function as well.
It is 20-25 times more powerful than the original CoolCLAVE™, providing more sterilization power by using the power of combined UV plus ozone cycles. The CoolCLAVE™ Plus is effective in sterilizing contaminated pipettes, pipette tips, gloves, plates, small instruments, and even personal items such as keys, glasses, wallets, small purses, etc.
To disinfect items, simply place them inside the CoolCLAVE™ plus sterilizer and press the appropriate cycle button. The anti-microbial properties of simultaneous ozone gas and UV light provide a dual and powerful sanitizing effect capable of eliminating more than 98% of common pathogenic organisms (bacteria, fungus, virus, etc.) in 30 minutes. The antimicrobial properties of ozone also eliminate the odors produced by various organisms providing a deodorizing effect as well. Best of all, the CoolCLAVE™ plus sterilizer is very safe and efficient, does not use any liquids, harsh chemicals, or heat, and does not damage any surfaces or leave any chemical residues behind.
|Heat||Approximately 30 minutes to maximum heat (~80°C) and ~60 more to cool down to room temperature|
|O3/UV||Ozone and UV run simultaneously. Approximately 30 minutes to maximum ozone level (24ppm) and ~40 more minutes to residual ppm level (1ppm)|
|Heat + O3/UV||Heat cycle runs first and it takes ~15 minutes to reach maximum temperature (~56°C); this is also the point at which the simultaneous ozone and UV cycle initiates. After ~15 minutes more, maximum ozone level is reached (~20 ppm), and an additional 30 minutes of run time will allow temperatures to return to about 28°C, and ozone level will drop to residual levels (~0.5 ppm)|
The results clearly show that the O3/UV cycle is capable of killing all bacterial cells from all plate dilutions, including the highest concentration of 16 million cells.
Disclaimer: The CoolCLAVE™ Plus Personal UV and Ozone Sterilizer is not a replacement or substitute for autoclaves, and should not be used to sterilize equipment for use in medical or surgical applications of any kind. The CoolCLAVE™ Plus sterilizing cycles can eliminate most surface contaminants, especially bacterial and fungal, but only at lower densities that are typical in normal operating environments, such a lab benches or general surfaces. AMSBIO makes no claims and offers no guarantee of any kind that a CoolCLAVE™ cycle(s) will eliminate 100% of all contaminants under all possible circumstances.
