Important information

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. Our Service Centre is continuing to operate a UK-wide team of engineers to carry out a full range of maintenance, service and testing to UKAS and HTM guidelines on both LTE and non-LTE brands of laboratory autoclaves, porous load sterilizers and washer-disinfectors.

Calibration & Validation

In addition to ensuring your equipment is regularly serviced, it is important to provide evidence that it is operating effectively and controlling correctly.

In order to achieve this, most customers are required to work to recognised standards such as HTM01-01 or UKAS. Depending on the standard, testing may be required on a daily, weekly, quarterly or annual basis and should be carried out by a Competent Person.

LTE’s nationwide team of engineers are all qualified to HTM01-01 parts C & D and UKAS and are equipped with the latest data loggers and TQ software to enable them to provide customers with the reports of the testing.

HTM Testing

Our engineers are qualified to HTM 01-01 parts C & D and have experience with all leading manufacturers’ autoclaves, washer disinfectors and endoscope storage/drying cabinets.
We can offer microbiological testing on the endoscope cabinets and final rinse water testing on washers, as well as steam condensate analysis and are on the NHS Supply Chain Framework agreement for maintenance and validation of autoclaves and washer disinfectors.

UKAS Testing

Most laboratories and research establishments are required to work to UKAS standards. LTE’s Service Centre is accredited to UKAS (ISO17025) and is audited on an annual basis by UKAS to ensure our procedures and quality system operate to their required standard.

LTE’s accreditation enables us to issue UKAS certification for our work which is signed off by our Technical Manager and covers temperature, pressure and time.

Please visit the UKAS website to see our Schedule of Accreditation

Other Testing

For customers who do not operate to HTM or UKAS standards but still wish to have equipment calibrated, testing can be tailored to meet your requirements.
As with all our other services, calibration and validation is available to non contract customers.
