LTE 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.
LTE, 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.”
This is an area of increasing importance to customers, yet it is widely misunderstood. Various methods can be incorporated into autoclaves to improve the usage of such services as electricity and water.
Cycle Recording and Data Archiving In Autoclaves.
Autoclaves can cool their loads in many ways. The important thing to remember that whilst it is important to cool the load quickly as possible, it is more important to cool the load as safely as possible. Continue reading
Advances in sterilization technology and knowledge over the last ten years have been huge, and customers are now demanding more functions and features on their autoclaves to ensure that their loads are sterilized quickly and effectively. Continue reading
