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.”
