Albatros screws

Product description

The Albatros screws are manufactured at the facilities of SARL CHOC, rue Louis Lépine, Albasud 3, 82000 Montauban, France.

They are manufactured from ISO 5832-3 standard TA6V ELI titanium. All materials are obtained from ISO 9001 certified suppliers, who provide for each titanium delivery a material conformity certificate with a physicochemical analysis.

The screws are produced in accordance with our manufacturing procedures: a manufacturing order is issued by the Production Manager. For each manufacturing order, the Production Manager assigns a four digit batch number. The manufacturing order details all the operations to be carried out on the products. At each stage, various dimensional verifications are carried out by the manufacturing operators and by the Production Manager. All inspection forms are kept with the manufacturing order.

The Albatros screws are lockable in Albatros plates.

To ensure traceability,, the screws are individually packaged in double blister packs. The first blister contains the screw and a sterilisation indicator label. The second blister contains the first blister and five traceability stickers with the product reference, description and batch number.

The packed screws are then sent to Synergy Health France (MIN des Arnavaux- 13014 MARSEILLE) for sterilisation by gamma radiation according to the  ISO 11137-02, ISO 11737-1, ISO 11737-2, EN 552, EN 556 standards and dose mapping. After sterilisation, SYNERGY HEALTH returns the batch of sterilised screws with a certificate of sterilisation by gamma radiation.

The products in the packaging are then labelled. The label includes the description, the reference, the production batch number, the method of sterilisation, the expiry date, the "single use" and "read instructions before use" symbols, the manufacturer's name and address and the CE 1014 markings.

The screws are packed in boxes identically labelled as above, stretch-wrapped and stored in closed cupboards, away from direct light and humidity.

Storage conditions: no special conditions.
