Having high quality equipment makes all the difference in sensitive laboratory environments where consistency and reliability are the pathway to achieving valid, consistent test results. The broad range of new Touchclave sterilizers by LTE Scientific lets you choose the features that will best conform to your requirements. (more…)

More often than not, elderly people who move (or are moved) from their homes to an assisted living facility are able take little with them. Photos, books and cross stitch samplers are easy to transport and serve as some of the only physical reminders many aging individuals have of their previous collection of possessions. When you think about it, clothing is another thing most people take with them when they are packing. (more…)

LGInternational in Portland, Oregon has added a new design to its label arsenal that will allow technicians to make sure they are using clean equipment. Sterilization monitoring labels come in both permanent and removable varieties to fit the needs of your business. Each autoclave label has an ink strip that will change color when exposed to appropriate levels of heat. LG also produces similar products for use with gamma radiation and ethylene oxide gas sterilizers making their selection one of the most versatile on the market. (more…)

The Miele company has come a long way since it churned out its first cream separators and washing machines over a hundred years ago. This German based company now offers a wide range of laboratory equipment including a full line of disinfection units like the new G7883. Reusing glass bottles and vials in lab experiments always introduces the risk of contamination, so sterilization is a critical aspect of valid and repeatable test results. (more…)

When I reach the age of 50 and start being subjected to more invasive yearly checkups, I sincerely hope the physician I see uses the best method possible to clean his endoscopy equipment. A rubber encased fiber-optic tube that has been intimately familiar with the interior of another patient is definitely not my idea of something that should just get a “quick rinse” before reuse. The Tristel Cl02 Generator operated in conjunction with an Innova E series reprocessing unit gives doctors confidence that the scope they are wielding is squeaky clean. (more…)

On today’s terrorist infested battlefield, an improvised explosive device may be triggered at any moment sending shrapnel careening into the bodies of multiple soldiers at once. Medics on the scene need viable ways to save lives without risking infection from using dirty or contaminated medical equipment. A portable chemical sterilizer (PCS) can provide an adequate and timely solution. (more…)

EcoQuest air cleaners use a three pronged approach to purification – ultraviolet radiation, ionization, and photo catalytic oxidation. UV rays are generated by a lamp in the machine and mimic the sun’s sterilization ability. Ionization is created by electrostatic filters which are electrically charged metal plates with a space between them for air to pass through. Charged (ionized) dust particles then cling to nearby surfaces rather than staying airborne effectively removing them from your breathing environment. (more…)

People sometimes say that the three most important factors for success in business are location, location, and location. This doesn’t just apply to the lot where you lease office space or construct a building. Where you choose to install your lab equipment within the facility is just as critical. A lack of preplanning can make future renovations much harder than they need to be. Getting a brand new large capacity autoclave inside the third story of an existing structure is a good example of the consequences of haphazard interior design. At first glance, the poorly planned location seems to be an insurmountable obstacle. The machine is too large to be carried through a stairwell or by an elevator, but ‘Where there is a will, there is a way’. (more…)

Lucrative government contracts are a prized windfall for certain companies. When those types of contracts are gained in tandem with ones secured in private industry, major growth in revenue tends to follow. The Sterilization Systems Group (SSG) is a division of Environmental Tectonics Corp (Amex: ETC) and they focus on such a strategy. The company recently generated valuable revenue for its parent organization through the receipt of 3 new contracts. One of the deals is repeat business with the Air Force for the M138 Portable Field Sterilization System. (more…)

Impeding the growth of micro-organisms on the surface of laboratory and medical products reduces the chance of cross-contamination during normal handling. BioCote Ltd has developed a silver based powder that is used to do exactly that. The silver technology can be incorporated into a variety of materials at the manufacturing stage. BioCote gave Priorclave permission to produce autoclaves using this technology in an exclusive agreement. This biocidal surface coating is now standard for all their autoclave products. Protection lasts throughout the lifetime of the equipment. (more…)
