Data acquisition and logging of laboratory equipment cycle data is becoming increasingly important for many laboratories and institutions.
LTE Scientific’s Touchclave-Lab autoclave range addresses this issue in a number of ways. Unlike many autoclave manufacturers, Internal Data Archiving is a standard feature on all Touchclave-Lab models. Up to 5000 cycles are stored on an internal flashcard, which, when full is simply replaced. The data from the flashcard is easily downloaded to a PC using LTE’s Touchclave-NET software. All data is checksum protected, and thus tamper-proof.
Alternatively, data can be downloaded in real-time to a remote PC. This is achieved either through a hard-wired installation for PC’s which are close to the autoclave, or via Ethernet for data which needs to be collected centrally.
In addition, LTE can provide a wide range of graphic recorders or data acquisition systems to provide graphical and historical cycle data. These can be configured to meet 21CFR11 if required.
Touchclave-Lab autoclaves offer large loading volumes whilst taking up minimal floor space. They are available in a range of capacities from 150 to 450-litres and can be supplied with internal heaters, steam generators, or fed from customers own steam supply as required. The range incorporates a state-of-the-art touch-screen control system for entering and displaying all commands, cycle and program data. ‘K’ models include a water jacket cooling system to enhance cycle performance and can also be fitted with vacuum and steam jackets allowing effective drying of porous and other loads.
All LTE products are supplied with Sterling anti-bacterial powder coating.
A choice of eight user-programmable cycles can be stored in the memory, with an optional memory expansion facility boosting the total to 20. All Touchclave-Lab autoclaves can be supplied with a number of additional features including vacuum, air ballast, effluent retention and high security filters.
For after sales care. LTE employs a 14-strong team of UKAS and HTM-qualified engineers to carry out servicing, maintenance, calibration and validation throughout the UK.
