Designed and built in the UK, the NEW LTE Touchclave-ecotech autoclave combines a high level of standard features with exceptionally low energy and water usage. Having responded to increasing customer demands to reduce their carbon footprint and utility costs, the Touchclave-ecotech is simply the most technically advanced and ‘greenest’ multi-purpose autoclave of its type.

The ecotech range currently comprises 2 x front loading models of 40 and 60-litres, both of which can be bench mounted, plus a 60-litre top-loading model with low loading height.

Ecotech’s unique external steam generation system saves both water usage and energy. No more waiting for water reservoirs to heat up as the new ecotech starts delivering steam in a matter of seconds, resulting in shorter cycle times and significant energy savings.

The single piece 316L grade stainless steel pressure vessel is completely seamless providing a smooth and clean interior.

Ecotech’s door locking system automatically draws the door closed, applying the right amount of pressure to seal every time. At the end of the cycle, the door is opened via the touchscreen.

Auto-fill and auto-drain is a standard feature ensuring that each cycle starts with a clean charge of water.

At the heart of the new ecotech range is LTE’s intuitive new icon driven TFT colour touchscreen control system which comes with 8 programmable cycles as standard. This is optionally expandable to 16, 32 or 64 programmable cycles.
All cycles are customer configurable and can be programmed at the machine interface or on a PC using LTE’s ‘Smart Create’ software, and then downloaded into the autoclave memory via the built-in USB port.

The TFT touchscreen not only displays temperatures and pressure but also cycle stage data and in-cycle messages, thus giving the user a complete overview of cycle progress and status.

The facility for remote data archiving of cycles via Ethernet connection to a PC is supplied on all machines. If required, ecotech can be configured for internal data archiving and uploaded to a USB Flash drive

When ecotech isn’t in use, it will automatically go into one of its sleep modes, effectively going to ‘standby’ and drawing minimal power. Simply touching the screen will wake the system up. Alternatively, it can be programmed to wake up and start a cycle through the delayed start feature.

LTE Invited to Speak at Endoscopy 2016 in Kuala Lumpur

LTE at Endoscopy 2016 exhibitionLTE recently supported its Malaysian Distributor, DKSH by attending the Endoscopy 2016 Exhibition which was held at the University of Malaya Medical Centre in Kuala Lumpur from 8th to 10th April. UMMC is a recognised WEO Centre of Excellence.
As the main annual forum of its type, this event attracted endoscopy clinicians and specialists from Malaysia and overseas.

The issue of post-disinfection drying and storage of endoscopes is becoming an important consideration in Malaysia, and LTE were pleased to exhibit a model from it’s popular Scope-Store range, which dries the disinfected endoscopes and can store them for up to 14 days with the need for re-processing. Greg Godeau, LTE’s International Sales Manager was also invited to give a talk to all the delegates on the subject of post-disinfection scope storage.

Greg commented ‘We have already seen Scope-Store establish itself in Hong Kong, with over 40 installations, so my presentation at this prestigious event was a great opportunity to outline the benefits of our Scope-Store range. Having seen the level of interest at the Exhibition, I am certain that Scope-Store will soon become a common sight in Malaysian Endoscopy departments’.

LTE’s distributor in Malaysia, DKSH is a major Regional supplier of medical and pharmaceutical equipment in Malaysia and has a nationwide network of sales and service staff, ensuring the best possible levels of care for their customers.

Scope-Store Triumphs Again in Hong Kong

01b with reflectionsLTE, working closely with its Hong Kong Distributor, Deltason Medical has won one of the largest single tenders ever awarded in South East Asia for endoscope drying and storage cabinets.

The order, worth over £300K will see 22 Scope-Store cabinets installed in a number of Hospitals in Hong Kong over the next 4 months. This latest order comes on the back other Scope-Store sales in Hong Kong over the last couple of years, taking LTE’s total installed base to over 40.

Once reprocessed, endoscopes should be used within 4 hours unless stored in a validated drying/Storage cabinet. LTE’s Scope-Store allows reprocessed endoscopes to be stored for up to 14 days. This is achieved by flushing HEPA filtered air through the cabinet and scope channels to ensure that the endoscope is quickly dried and that its conditions are maintained throughout the storage period.

An easy to use touchscreen control system provides detailed information on the storage cycle and fully monitors/reports the cycle data. Scope and user information are inputted either via the touchscreen, bar-code readers or RFI.

The units bound for Hong Kong are all the 8-scope shelf loaded models, both single entry and pass-through. Other models in the LTE range include 5 and 10-scope vertical hang models and a range of ENT cabinets which can accommodate up to 20 scopes.

Greg Godeau, LTE’s International Sales Manager commented “This is a great success for both Deltason and LTE. The order was won against stiff competition, and our success here cements our position in the Hong Kong market.”
