As a key supplier to the NHS, PHE and other critical life science sectors during the Covid-19 crisis, LTE is committed to ensuring the uninterrupted supply of its sterilization, decontamination, as well as laboratory thermal equipment including incubators, ovens and drying and solution/blanket warming cabinets.

Our UK production site remains fully operational and can offer some products from stock or on shortened lead times.

FFP2 Mask Reprocessing

Following the current shortage of PPE including FFP2 face masks due to COVID-19, the Dutch National Institute of Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) have conducted a study into the sterilisation of FFP2 masks. The study has revealed that by using hydrogen peroxide sterilisation the masks can be reused in circumstances of extreme shortages such as we currently face with the COVID-19 pandemic.

As UK exclusive distributor of Matachana HPO (Hydrogen Peroxide) low temperature sterilisers, we are pleased to inform our customers that the Matachana 130HPO & 50HPO Low Temperature Sterilisers can sterilise FFP2 masks. This will enable companies including our NHS that are struggling with supply to reprocess and reuse their masks allowing up to 3 uses per mask to keep our healthcare professionals safe.
