20/30 Labs have the expertise to provide clients with specialist research and development testing in addition to the routine microbiological analysis performed. The organisation is one of the only laboratories in Europe accredited to ISO 13485 for microbiological testing and consultancy services to the medical device industry.
With a team of highly competent microbiologists and scientists specialising in medical device validation, particularly in the field of device decontamination and medical device regulatory requirements, we are able to offer a wide range of services including the determination of decontamination efficacy and the analysis of microbiological growth in medical device storage systems. Not only can we microbiologically assess medical devices, we can also contribute to the design of the product, develop and validate decontamination methods and solve decontamination problems with innovative solutions.
Following the relocation of premises to a purpose built 20,000 sq. ft. building, 20/30 Labs have incorporated a dedicated facility for research and development activities which now enhances the services that 20/30 Labs are able to offer.
Recent research and development projects that 20/30 Labs have been involved in include a review of the ability to effectively decontaminate reusable laryngoscopes, the provision of a validated protocol for the high level disinfection and sterilisation of heat sensitive medical instruments and the validation of an endoscope storage system.
