UK manufacturer LTE Scientific are delighted to announce that they have once again been awarded placement on the Decontamination Capital Equipment & Associated Accessories framework through NHS Supply Chain.
From Feb 2021 and effective for a minimum of 24 months – up to 48 months, LTE will continue to supply essential decontamination capital equipment to companies wishing to purchase via NHS Supply Chain.
As with the current framework LTE have been completely successful in all product submissions, allowing for the continuous supply of all ranges currently available. These include their British-made products, including Porous Load Touchclave System Sterilizers, Scopestore Endoscope Drying Cabinets offering both shelved and vertical endoscope storage, plus Danish-made KEN IQ Washer Disinfectors and LD2000 Trolley Washers.
LTE are also thrilled to announce that thanks to their recent partnership with leading Spanish manufacturer Matachana, it has been confirmed that they can now supply the framework with a range of Low Temperature Hydrogen Peroxide Sterilizers. The HPO sterilizers are available in two sizes and are designed for the safe sterilization of heat-sensitive devices, including non-lumened instruments, endoscopes and Da Vinci instruments.
Working with partners KEN Hygiene and Matachana has greatly diversified LTE’s product offering, allowing them to encompass a wider field within decontamination without compromising on LTE’s high standards of quality.
LTE products are already a common sight across many NHS sites, including the recently developed CSSD “super center” at Broadgreen Hospital Liverpool which houses 4 x LTE 42Cu.ft. porous load sterilizers with automated loading/offloading.
Queens Hospital Burton CSSD hosts LTE’s installation of 5 x KEN IQ6 Washer Disinfectors, which received exceptional praise from both management and end-users for their outstanding efficiency, reliability and economic value.
John Lees, Managing Director of LTE said: “We are thrilled to have once again been awarded a place on the decontamination framework. Our goal at LTE is to continue to be one of the leading UK manufacturers of sterilization and decontamination equipment, and right now because of COVID-19 we are going above and beyond to not just assist with testing and vaccination efforts, but also to get equipment put in place that will contribute to research and help to stem future outbreaks.
“COVID has highlighted on a grand scale just how essential decontamination equipment is. As experts in the field of sterilization and decontamination we are here to provide vital guidance and equipment to help healthcare professionals and our NHS, whether independently or via NHS Supply Chain.”
