Laryngoscopy

For over 50 years we have produced an unrivalled range of laryngoscopes. Our products are manufactured to exceed internationally recognised quality standards and provide years of trouble-free use. We continuously strive to develop and improve our products to better serve the needs of the clinician, ultimately helping save lives. It is through unremitting innovation that we aim to generate significant positive transformations in the market that will radically enhance laryngoscopy.

Supply Chain and Distribution

We hold huge stocks to ensure quick delivery of all regular orders. We also understand our customers may have a preferred logistic route for purchasing, so, although every product is available direct from Timesco, we also make our range available via a few select partners, such as NHS supply chain, Bunzl, Squadron and our distributors in Scotland, Ireland and 60 countries across the globe. If ordering via NHS supply chain, National Product Codes (NPC) are listed where appropriate.

Quality

We know the implications of a laryngoscope failing in use, so all our manufacturing processes and quality procedures are designed to ensure they don’t fall and conform to the relevant standards. However, we recognise that, despite every effort, the odd rogue product can develop a problem. That’s why we provide an extensive guarantee on our reusable laryngoscope products. If any item becomes faulty during the guarantee period, we will repair or replace it free of charge. All we ask is that it is not abused and our care and reprocessing instructions are followed. Consumable parts such as bulbs and fibre optic cores are not covered by the guarantee.

Single Use

Cross infection is now a major concern throughout all aspects of medical care.

With the growing problems surrounding resilient virus strains and prions, guidance by the Association of Anesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland (AAGBI) indicates that single use devices are to be preferred (see Infection Control in Anaesthesia 2nd Edition, 2008)

Single use airway products are now a vital part of combating infections in anaesthesia.

Over the past few years, Timesco have pioneered the development of single use laryngoscope blades that provide unrivalled clinical performance. Our Europa and Callisto single use metal blades are recognised as the No.1 systems throughout the U.K. and are used as the blades of choice in most major U.K. hospitals.

Despite their limited life, all our single use products are made to provide the highest level of clinical performance, without compromising patient care, and yet they are economical enough to be disposed of after use.

We don’t compromise on quality, why should you?
