ESTS recognised for Laboratory Improvement and Innovation

ESTS have been honoured with an award for Best New Product at the highly coveted S-Lab Awards for Laboratory Improvement and Innovation.  The award was in recognition of their Integral Steam Generator’s (ISG) as fitted to the Logiclave™ range of Laboratory Autoclaves.

After collecting the ‘Highly Commended’ award, Director Colin Hartop is quoted as saying “it is a huge privilege to accept this as recognition of my team’s efforts in developing this product.”  He added ”we are always striving to reduce the cost of autoclave ownership both in terms of energy efficiency and long term support costs.  The ISG goes a long way to achieving these goals.”

Entries covered a range of topics, including best practice design of new and refurbished lab facilities, the importance of technical support, application of lean production principles to lab practice, better chemical and sample management, sharing of equipment, environmental improvement actions, more effective use of freezers, and the growing impact of IT within both research and teaching.

The Awards are supported by many leading professional and higher education bodies. They were presented at a prestigious ceremony at the Supporting World Class Science conference at the University of Leeds on September 16. The Conference had presentations from many of the short-listed entries. It provides a unique forum for science managers, estates and facilities, technical support, specialist services, suppliers and others to hear about the lab innovations and to network with a wider range of people than they normally experience.

ESTS are the UK based manufacturer of the Logiclave™ range of Laboratory Autoclaves.
