AUTOCLAVE VALIDATION

Whether Quarterly or Annually, DDL will Validate your autoclave to HTM 01-05 standards at a competitive price. All consumables for operator validation are available.

Do I need my autoclave validating?

Under healthcare standards and guidelines such as BS-ENISO:13060:2014, BS-ENISO:15883:1 and HTM 01-05, revalidation should be completed annually or in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. 

What duration of time does a validation take?

The duration of a validation depends on the model of the autoclave. We would always recommend trying to book the maintenance on a quieter day for the practice to reduce any disruption.
