In healthcare, biomedical facilities, laboratories and other specialist environments, contamination and infection control, as well as safety and protection, are critical at all times. To ensure total security to the welfare of staff and animals, it is vital that all decontamination equipment undergoes validation and testing and evaluated regularly to certify they continue to meet all legal and safety regulations. Periodic validation of decontamination equipment is therefore required according to the Department of Health publications standards. Utilizing UKAS accredited test equipment your sterilization and washing systems are in safe hands, all test equipment used is independently calibrated to ensure temperature and pressure is accurate and verified.

STEAM & WATER QUALITY TESTING
Decontamination equipment relies on effective steam sterilization. To ensure maximum performance, continuous supply of dry, saturated steam is required. Sychem engineers have all the necessary equipment and technical expertise to carry out and report steam quality testing to the requirements of HTM2010, CFPP01-01, HTM2031 and EN285. During our Quality Steam and Water tests, Sychem engineers collect the water and condensate samples from the decontamination equipment (including Washer Disinfectors and Endoscope Reprocessors) and RO water systems for particulate and microbiological laboratory analysis. All the samples are then sent to be analysed at one of the UK’s leading microbiology test laboratories. All the test results offer full comprehensive traceable reports included as standard.
