Service Agencies – Autoclaves

Authorised Service Agencies – Autoclaves

 

Since autoclaves have become a mandatory requirement for sterilization of instruments, for Medical Centre and for accreditation, U-Tech Medical has been testing and validating for compliance to Australia Standards AS4185.

 

As the autoclaves have become more popular, the demand for service, preventative maintenance and performance verification has also grown. For over a decade, U-Tech Medical has developed a strong relationship, with the leading manufacturers and suppliers of benchtop autoclaves, typically used in Dental and Medical practices.

 

Testing and Verification guidelines for owners of Autoclaves used in Medical and Dental Clinics.

 

Your autoclave is designed to sterilise reusable instruments used in medical and dental surgical procedures. As an owner and user of an autoclave it is your responsibility to ensure safe provisions are in place for the use of sterile healthcare products. Confirmation that the autoclave has been verified and is performing accurately, reliably and within the manufacturer’s specifications and service intervals, is also your responsibility. As a guide, the Australian Standard, AS4815, is used by operators, manufacturers and service providers, as the industry standard for office based medical and dental facilities.

 

As a responsible service provider, U-Tech Medical works within the guidelines of this standard, plus the manufacturer’s preventative maintenance/service requirements, to ensure that your autoclave is accurate, reliable and able to meet the Australian Standards and accreditation requirements.

 

How we can help?

 

We can review your autoclave make and model, and then provide you with a recommendation for verification, preventative maintenance and on-site repairs as needed.

 

With our calibrated test equipment we can provide accurate and traceable test cycle verification results, as required by AS4815 and by independent accreditation groups.

 

We can advise on the age and condition of your autoclave and recommendation on the expected life, so you can plan a replacement program before the autoclave becomes non-serviceable.
