Testing & Validation

Decontamination & HTM, Validation

Our Engineers are trained by the equipment manufacturers and certified to HTM 01-05, 2010, and 2030.

Routine maintenance of decontamination equipment such as autoclaves, washer disinfectors and ultrasonic baths is essential to ensure continued performance. However, it is also a legal requirement for all these devices to be validated in accordance with the relevant HTM Standards.

Ai Healthcare can provide all maintenance and validation of your equipment, using the latest test equipment and technology to ensure accuracy and full reporting to the standards. The reports we provide will evidence that your equipment meets all the standards for safety and performance.
