TUTA Products, as it was originally known, was established in the entrepreneurial years following World War II by Bruce Rose, a former RAAF pilot. The first TUTA products were essentially novelties which included cheap plastic sporting and leisure items ‚ even ships in bottles. It was during World War II hostilities that Perspex was invented as one of the first ‚plastics‚. This became an important military commodity. Rose had first- hand experience of Perspex and was quick to see that there was a future in plastics. He was open to other ways his company‚s knowledge of this new field could be exploited.
Up until that time, almost everything in medicine was re-usable and laboratory equipment was no exception, despite the obvious biological hazards of re-use.
Rose initially developed a plastic Petri dish that was hugely successful and opened the door for TUTA to the world of medicine. He then engaged the services of Len Wisdom, a microbiologist at the University of Melbourne and also a former RAAF pilot, and the company went ahead in leaps and bounds, pioneering the development of plastic blood collection and transfusion sets at the request of the Red Cross Blood Transfusion service, forging strong professional relationships with anaesthetists and haematologists, the legacy of which still remains today.
Key to TUTA‚s success is innovation and a customer-centric focus that allows us to design and develop new products to enable advances in clinical techniques that meet the requirements of leading medical professionals. Our ability to quickly adapt and meet the needs of surgeons globally is recognised throughout the medical profession and puts us at the forefront of the industry....
Glassware technicians work mainly in laboratories, pharmaceutical companies and universities to clean, maintain, and sterilize all glassware used for scientific and commercial purposes. Glassware technicians operate industrial glassware washers, sterilizers and heat sterilization ovens to ensure that all glassware used is free of contamination. They also ensure that glassware is stored and inventoried properly and that each unit is available for use on demand.
A glassware technician primarily cleans and maintains glassware items used in the laboratory or other contained environment. Glassware technicians must be thorough in washing, drying and sterilizing each glass component to ensure optimal sanitation. They are also responsible for cleaning and maintaining the general environment in which the glassware is kept. Glassware technicians must also remove any broken or damaged glass items and properly log them into the system's inventory database.
In addition to regular duties, glassware technicians also perform other functions, such as arranging or rearranging glassware components to ensure more efficient accessibility. They also assume basic cleaning and janitorial duties in their work environments. Glassware technicians also assist in training newer associates and ensuring that they adhere to the company's standard operating procedures.
A glassware technician must hold at minimum a high school or GED diploma and be 18 years old or older. Employers prefer 1 or 2 years of first-hand experience in a laboratory environment. Glassware technicians must also pass a criminal background investigation and be authorized to work in the U.S.
