CPT Medical

Innovative partnership to produce hundreds of thousands of comprehensive specimen collection kits weekly.

GREENVILLE, S.C. – Two South Carolina-based companies are teaming up to address the national shortage of COVID-19 testing kits. CPT Medical, a surgical pack and kit manufacturing firm that specializes in viral transport media (VTM), and Hoowaki LLC, the developer of a first-of-its-kind injection molded nasopharyngeal swab with large-scale production capability, have announced a dynamic, new partnership. Hoowaki is providing their NP Collection Swab with Hoowaki MICROGRIP® technology to CPT Medical to be packaged along with CPT Medical’s VTM. These kits will be used by healthcare systems and laboratories across the country. Both the VTM and Hoowaki NP Collection Swab are FDA-registered products and organizations and are produced to strict CGMP guidelines.

A recently published Harvard study [link] indicated that up to 20 million COVID-19 tests will be needed per day by the end of summer 2020 to adequately meet demand and flatten the disease growth curve. By the end of July, 200,000 kits will be produced weekly.

“Quality specimen collection supplies are a crucial component in ensuring that access to testing is available, as there is currently a critical shortage in the nation’s supply chain,” said Kevin Murdock, founder of CPT Medical. “We are very excited to partner with Hoowaki, and proud that our new kits will be made right here in Greenville, SC.”

Each specimen collection kit packaged by CPT Medical includes their VTM and the Hoowaki NP Collection Swab. CPT Medical has become a top producer of the CDC recommended VTM since adding its production to their long-standing manufacturing of customized surgical kits, packs, and standard procedure trays. Currently producing 100,000 tubes of VTM per week, they expect to increase that number to 200,000 per week within a month’s time.

Hoowaki, a specialist in microsurface technologies and friction solutions with a 12-year track-record of innovation, adapted its existing technologies to develop the NP Collection Swab. The swab has the advantage of being produced on existing injection molding equipment, enabling production on a scale not currently available with other swabs. The swab’s micro-pillars are shown in clinical user tests to meet existing industry-standard products for flexibility and performance. In independent laboratory testing (RT-qPCR Assay) the swab has also been proven equivalent to the industry-standard flocked filament swabs in the collection of patient RNA that is critical for COVID-19 testing.

According to Ralph Hulseman, president of Hoowaki, “Hoowaki ran toward the challenge of COVID-19 because we understood the power and versatility of our friction-based surfaces and recognized how they can improve our communities. Friction helps our swab easily collect and securely store a patient’s RNA specimen until it can be placed into a VTM—that’s why we are so excited to work with CPT Medical. It’s a partnership based on solving the big challenge of meeting testing demand nationwide.”

As part of the partnership, Hoowaki is selling hundreds of thousands of NP Collection Swabs to CPT Medical weekly to be included in the specimen collection kits along with the VTM. Both the Hoowaki NP Collection Swab and CPT Medical’s VTM are also available for purchase separately from the specimen collection kits.

~CPT Medical Now a Top Producer of COVID-19 Nasopharyngeal Specimen Collection Kits with CDC Recommended Viral Transport Medium~

GREENVILLE, SC June 25, 2020 – Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, a large portion of the testing shortage has been attributed to a difficulty for laboratories in obtaining both nasopharyngeal swabs and viral transport media (VTM). In recent weeks, CPT Medical, a surgical pack and kit manufacturing firm based in Greenville, SC, has endeavored to find solutions for this supply shortage and are now producing COVID-19 specimen collection kits with nasopharyngeal swabs and CDC recommended VTM for hospitals, nursing homes, and physician’s offices throughout the US.

As a company that is accustomed to suiting the shifting needs of their customers, CPT Medical has adapted swiftly to the current COVID-19 testing demands. They’ve added production of these collection kits to their production of customized surgical kits, packs, and standard procedure trays which they’ve manufactured for over 15 years. With employees working around the clock, they are now one of the top producers in the country of these COVID-19 specimen collection kits, yielding 20,000 per day for distribution. They’ve already shipped 400,000 across the US and expect to increase their production to 100,000 collection kits per day in the near future.

CPT is also manufacturing the CDC recommended formula VTM in bulk to be sold on its own to laboratories or testing sites that may already have the sample collection swabs, but still need a quality VTM by itself. Nasopharyngeal swabs can also be purchased separately. While VTM is used for several types of diagnostic tests, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a spike in demand for its use with the COVID-19 RT-PCR assays or molecular diagnostic tests that are integral to opening up America again. CPT is currently producing 100,000 viral transport mediums per week and expects to increase that to 500,000 per week during the next few weeks.

It has been reported that testing sensitivity can be effected by the VTM used in storing, preserving, and transporting specimens. This is why having the CDC recommended formula is significant in ensuring reliable testing results and lowering the amount of false negative diagnoses that patients receive.

“Having quality supplies on hand for COVID-19 testing is essential in keeping the economy moving forward safely as we all shift into phases of reopening the country,” said Kevin Murdock, founder of CPT Medical. “That’s why we have made it our mission during this pandemic to find and manufacture ourselves the best in testing supplies to do our part in continuing to flatten the curve while helping more people receive accurate diagnostic results.”

Developed in CPT Medical’s FDA registered facility under CDC guidelines, the specimen collection kits offered are bulk kits for nursing homes, hospitals, laboratories, and large physician’s offices as well as individual kits for laboratories. Produced in collaboration with Premier Medical Laboratory Services, a COLA and CLIA regulated laboratory, the collection kits serve as COVID-19 diagnostic testing and Respiratory Pathogen Profile (RPP) kits.

Are There Different Types of Custom Procedure Trays?

There is no doubt that custom procedure trays are one of the best inventions in the world of medical practice. You will definitely be forced to think of the best custom procedure tray whether you need to perform a surgery or just want to carry your tools. Rather than using medical stock models, the following types of custom procedure trays could come in handy when conducting different procedures;

  • Surgical trays with stands

Traditional custom procedure trays may just be good but surgical trays with stands may be better especially if you’re going to operate in a position that suits it best. Unless you’re operating on the ground, a stand will always come in handy whenever you’re standing in an actual operating room.

  • Single-use custom procedure trays

Single – use instruments are mostly used outside the operating room. If you’re going to working in the field, it’s crucial to carry medical kits that you can easily dispose of. Carrying a single – use custom procedure tray on the go can turn out to be a wise decision since we can never predict where and when accidents are going to happen. It’s better to always be prepared well.

  • Covered and stackable custom trays

It’s important that you choose the right custom procedure trays as well as the right instruments for any given procedure. It might be challenging to determine how many custom trays you may need to be prepared for a surgery long before you begin. Similarly, it’s not easy to tell how many trays you’re going to use at any given time. Therefore, you need to have many trays that are not only strong but also durable. Such sturdiness will go a long way in ensuring that your pile of custom trays is safe and sound before any given procedure. Strong custom trays will also protect the surgical instruments inside from any contamination or debris that might compromise a procedure.

  • On the go kits

A custom tray of minor tools can always turn out to be useful and convenient when the need to use it arises. Other than the fact that custom trays carry basic medical kits, they’re also very useful when the time for immediate medical attention comes; whether major or minor. During such scenarios, you’re guaranteed of possessing a set of sterile surgical instruments that are safe to use.

  • Perforated instrument tray

Using a perforated custom tray may be useful in two ways; First, it allows air to freely circulate in the tray. Second, the perforations allow for fluids or drainage to exit and fall out of the tray. No one likes using a wet surgical instrument, so with the perforations, you will have a place for the cleaning solution and water to run to once you clean the surgical equipment. These merits can be considered as the “icing on the cake” for a custom tray given that there is the convenience of having instantly accessible equipment.

It is worth noting that you should always choose the right custom tray and medical tools to use for any given operation. It’s also important to mention that while preparing for a procedure at an ideal location such as a hospital setting, you might also be forced to deal with a situation that occurs anywhere and was not planned for. Nevertheless, all the types of custom trays mentioned above are useful irrespective of the location they’re used since they serve the same purpose.


Have you ever imagined how hectic medical procedures would be like today without custom surgical trays? Too long operations and confusions among other issues would be the case of the day. It could be chaotic in surgery rooms. Since the incorporation of custom surgical trays in the operation rooms, medical facilities have appreciated their contributions in health care. Their use has improved efficiency in medical services. Custom trays have enhanced professionalism especially among the clinicians.

Custom procedure trays have significantly improved operational efficiency and have tremendously impacted on both major and minor procedures in theatres. Some of the efficiencies custom surgical trays provide include the following.

Minimized preparation time

Custom trays bundle the work of many into one. They help cut the time needed to prepare for the operation. Besides, clean up time is minimized which directly translates to successful operations in theatres. Custom trays also increase the number of successful operations your theatre can do directing translating to improved profits.

Minimized errors 

Custom trays enhance a reduction of the number of trays to be used during the procedure. For this reason, the critical minutes spend during swapping of trays is minimized. It, therefore, ensures things do not get messed up and reduce disruptions in the theatre. This, in turn, increases the credibility of your operation room.

Minimal component stock

With the introduction for custom operation trays, the traditional approach used for stocking a theatre has been rendered useless. With them, you can easily stock what you need for a more extended period plus some general use kits that might be required for emergencies.

Improved quality control

Custom trays have ensured that custom trays providers deliver customized trays that contains the required contents with minimal confusion. This addressed the loopholes that were being experienced by the providers and the medical facilities. Custom trays also enhance quality supply of required medical equipment. Also, product ordering is improved through the streamlined inventory processes,

Increased profits

People always want to associate with something that provides quality. When a medical facility has a well-organized custom tray, more patients keep coming in to seek the quality services. This, of course, translates to increased income for the medical facility. The revenue also helps the facility to improve their services by the purchase of other medical equipment. An increase in income is directly proportional to the increase of staff who will be needed to provide quality services to the increasing patient base.

Enhanced quality medical services

Custom procedure trays being used safeguards a patient’s safety regarding contaminations. Sterilization can be easily used for cleaning custom trays. This does not need any skills thus promoting proper maintenance of the surgical tools and equipment.

Easy Traceability

In cases where some tools experience some problems, it is easy to trace them back to the vendor. This is enhanced with the components used in the custom procedure trays can be easily located using the vendor’s batch number.

Waste reduction

Custom trays have contributed in safeguarding our environment since there is reduced packaging of its components and the fact that sterilization is also done. This not only minimizes costs but also enhances proper usage of the CPT.

Custom procedure trays have become a favorite tool for many medical professionals. They boost efficiency, improved service delivery, and also have enhanced safeguarding of patients’ lives. With the changing medical environments, it is acceptable for a medical facility to adopt the use of custom trays for more efficient, professional and successful operations.


When Does a Custom Medical Procedure Tray Expire and What Determines the Expiration Date?

Custom medical trays are an exceptional product that make the flow of a medical office or facility so much more efficient and successful. The customization of the product allows for specific tools to be included in each kit; tailoring certain procedures to the needs of the medical professional using them. However, most people don’t consider that these custom trays actually have an expiration date and there are a number of factors that go into determining what this expiration date will be. Such determining factors are usually put into place by the Food and Drug Administration and followed by the company that is manufacturing the custom trays.

About Expiration Dates

The expiration of any product applies to the amount of time that a product is safe to use and will function how intended. If used after the expiration date is up, this can be a risk to the patient or consumer. When dealing with custom trays, the expiration date usually will be determined based on what exactly is in each tray. Certain items may last longer than others. For example, a tray with metal tools in it will last much longer than a tray that has something like a battery intended for a pacemaker.

What Determines An Expiration Date?

Ideally, items are analyzed in order to conclude when degradation of the products would occur. Degradation is present when there is a risk involved with continuing use of the products. Every product is different when it comes to expiration date so there are not always pre-set parameters that outline how an expiration date should be set. Serious consequences just aren’t worth it in these instances and the kit should either be returned or disposed of. There are typically five different sections that medical-grade products fall into when being assessed and that includes:

Physical Breakdown

Over time, with the packaging or the items in the tray change their composition?
This applies to viscosity, elasticity, appearance, strength, etc. Storage conditions may affect the product integrity and this is often listed on the exterior of the package as it applies to an expiration date.

Chemical Breakdown

A custom medical procedure tray will expire based on ingredients that may be present that are known to break down over time. Also, does the packaging break down over time in a way that would compromise the safety of the tray?


Medical procedure trays must stay sterile in order to be safe to use. Over time, this can change based on storage factors and the amount of time that passes. Sometimes preservatives are used and those have their own expiration date. Sometimes, special inspections need to be done periodically to ensure the sterile nature of the tray is in tact.

Therapeutic Breakdown

When expiration is considered, will the tools or device included in the procedure tray be able to function after a certain point?

Toxicological Breakdown

If the expiration date reaches its full maturity, will the product become toxic or unsafe?

Custom medical trays can be very simple or very elaborate with some trays dealing with minor conditions while others are used for more complex surgical procedures and such. When the expiration date is set according to proper standards and a medical facility follows these guidelines, the tools in the custom trays will work how they were designed. While there are other factors that may go into a natural defect with a tray, shelf life or expiration dates generally mean the product will be structurally in tact when needed.

Autoclaving for Custom Trays

Autoclaving refers to the process of sterilizing equipment and supplies with the use of high pressure usually saturated at 250°F (121°C) for around fifteen minutes. Steam is the sterilization agent that is used in autoclaving to kill microorganisms such as spores and bacteria found on custom procedure trays. By now you already know that all contaminated equipment and all infectious material or apparatus such as custom procedure trays should be decontaminated before being stored, discarded or washed. Autoclaving is the preferable method to go about all of the above.

Autoclaving is also utilized in curing composites, and vulcanizing rubber since the heat and pressure from autoclaves allows attainment of the best possible physical properties. The process of autoclaving is widely used in the fields of:

  • Dentistry
  • Veterinary science
  • Medicine
  • Body Piercing and Tattooing
  • Microbiology

What an autoclave is

An autoclave sterilizer was invented by Charles Chamberland in 1879. Around that time of invention, doctors were in dire need of a more reliable sterilization technique than open flaming. Researchers also began to understand the benefits of sterile surgery. Advantages of an autoclave were soon evident and autoclaving became an essential part of every clinic and hospital.

An autoclave is utilized for sterilization of pharmaceutical items, laboratory instruments, and surgical equipment including custom procedure trays among other materials. Autoclaves can sterilize hollows, liquids, solids, and instruments of different sizes and shapes. Autoclaves vary in functionality, size, and shape. Typical autoclaves are similar to pressure cookers; both use the power of steam to destroy spores, germs, and bacteria that are resistant to powerful detergents and boiling water.

How autoclaving is used in hospital settings

An autoclave chamber usually sterilizes custom procedure trays among other laboratory or medical instruments through heating them above boiling point. Most clinics own tabletop autoclaves that are typically similar in size to microwave ovens while most hospitals utilize large autoclaves (also known as horizontal autoclaves). Large autoclaves can be used to process many custom procedure trays among other surgical instruments. This move is advantageous as it meets the ongoing demand for sterile custom procedure trays in emergency wards and operating rooms. Horizontal Autoclaves are usually located in the Central Sterile Services Department (CSSD).

Autoclaving guidelines for custom procedure trays

If you choose to use autoclaves to decontaminate custom procedure trays, then you should stick to the following guidelines to experience the best results:

  • Check the drain screen of the autoclave
  • Prepare relevant research materials for sterilization of custom procedure trays
  • Use secondary containment for the custom procedure trays being autoclaved
  • Shut the autoclave door in a secure manner
  • Opt for the proper cycle
  • Set the suitable time for sterilization of the custom procedure trays and drying
  • Start the autoclave
  • Fill in the autoclave log

When the autoclave cycle is finished, follow the following precautions

  • Put on personal protection equipment such as lab coat, closed-toe shoes, heat-resistant gloves and eye protection
  • Do not open the door, not unless the pressure gauge has dropped to zero with no time remaining
  • Avoid opening an autoclave set for “slow exhaust” unless the cycle is complete as this might damage the operator and the autoclave
  • Open the door with caution and allow steam to escape first before removing the custom procedure trays
  • Let liquids stand for ten to twenty minutes after opening the autoclave before carefully removing the custom procedure trays

The process of autoclaving is very useful in the sterilization of medical waste before disposing in the waste stream. This method is mostly recommended than incineration because incinerators are inclined to raising health and environmental concerns.


Cost Benefits of Custom Trays

A custom tray is a pack that carries single-use instruments that medical professionals use to conduct procedures in operating rooms. The medical device commercial delivers the items contained on the tray to the surgical room in a single hygienic parcel. The industry works closely with medics to ensure the pack is dispatched promptly and in a cost-effective manner. Full custom surgical trays may include the following;

  • Cardiac catheters
  • Stitches
  • Wound dressing
  • Surgical blades
  • Implants
  • Drapes and
  • Surgical wipes

Minimized costs

Hospitals today are faced with many challenges including cost-cutting and increasing efficiency. Research lauds NHS for coming up with custom procedure trays. Custom trays have indeed been effective in cutting costs by a large extent. One of the ways CPT does this is through minimizing administrative costs that medical personnel used to endure before they came on board. Custom trays have achieved this through collective stocking of supplies necessary for procedures. The purchase of custom surgical trays in hospitals has also significantly reduced the cost of medical equipment. The reason being it’s more economical to buy a set of medical supplies than buying them individually. Through bulk purchases, medical facilities have been able to save on money that is then redirected to other projects. Moreover, custom trays help prevent the purchase of unnecessary tools. Custom trays also cut on costs through the following ways;

  • The administrative burden of controlling costs has been eased since the time spent on monitoring and ordering inventory has been cut down.
  • It minimizes adjustments and departmental requisition of the inventory at any given time.
  • Procedure packs reduce the risk of surgical items expiring, therefore, reducing the cost required to order for a fresh inventory
  • It helps medical professions work ingeniously and convey more procedures in record-breaking time. Some facilities have reported having increased their general surgical procedures by 35% through the use of custom trays

How CPT is economically viable

The use of Custom procedure trays is deployed in one of the most cost-intensive areas of any medical facility. The high cost includes everything from pre-op to post-op procedures which may be directly depended on each other. The operation room may turn out to generate revenue contingent to how the medical facility is organized. The professionals working in this part of the hospital may achieve that through certain practices that save on costs such as using custom trays. A custom procedure tray contains a wide array of medical instruments assembled in accordance with the requirements of a particular session in the operating room. In simple terms, many packages are integrated to form a single package. The use of custom trays in operating rooms is therefore useful in optimizing processes throughout any health facility. Consequentially, custom trays simplify the entire material management process right from receiving the instruments to storing them. This means that there will be more money saved that could be used for other purposes including many other areas of the medical facility or even its services.

The use of custom surgical trays has significantly improved service delivery in health facilities. There’s need for all medical facilities among other facilities to have custom trays. Custom procedure trays can help medical facilities to quickly respond to surgical procedures in due time without any mishaps. Moreover, health professionals recommend that all the procedures scripted in the custom procedure tray manual should be thoroughly adhered to.


What is a Custom Surgical Tray?

A custom procedure tray, whose abbreviation is CPT, is a collection of medical equipment created to provide disposable items which are used during surgery. They are usually designed and set up for your specific procedure needs. The contents of a custom procedure tray are packed together and delivered in a single sterile pack. The CPT mostly contains surgical blades, stitches, lesion dressing, heart catheters, surgical wipes, implants and surgical drapes.

What a good CPT should offer you:

– Cost efficiency

When you consider purchasing a custom procedure tray, it is highly advised to ensure that it saves money and it is thoroughly effective. This will elevate the efficiency of your operating room since it takes up less time. Also, your staff will be under minimum pressure. To add up on that, you will notice that your patient throughput increases.

– Reliability 

Do you want to offer best services to your patients? Every medic wants that; so, when buying a CPT make sure it can match your procedural needs to the highest quality standards. A good custom procedure tray presents the right component required for a surgical intervention in time and the right configuration.

– A variety of choices

A good CPT contains many medical devices. You don’t want to find yourself in an operating room, and there is a shortage of the devices you need to carry out a procedure. An extensive choice of surgical components specially selected for your clinical requirements should always be available.

– Flexibility

Every clinic has got unique surgical procedural needs. The tray you buy has to accommodate pack changes within weeks. This is due to outbreaks of different diseases which occur due to change of the climate and seasons.

– Quality certification

Quality certification is critical in competitive markets and medicine is one of them. The organization that you get your custom procedure tray should meet the statutory and regulatory requirements of the product.

– Reduced set-up time

Your theatre staff will sometimes want to be relieved of other duties. To achieve this, your custom tray should contain fewer products to open. You will also find out that your product ordering and stock control processes are more streamlined.

– Sterilization

In medicine, proper hygiene is observed. Your custom procedure tray should be presented in an easy format. That ensures that there is reduced risk of contamination. If not properly sterilized there is a possibility that your medical team will get infected.

– Waste reduction

Less packaging provides fewer items to dispose of. This is a good way to keep your environment clean. Reduction in the bags of waste used in your hospital can be cost-effective, time-saving and raises the caliber of care.

– No surprises

Custom procedure Trays provide an assurance that there will be no changes made to your tray without your consent.

Most modern hospitals are embracing the idea of owning custom procedure trays. That is because they are more cost-effective even in cases where there are less medical personnel. When you adopt one in your health facility, you improve the service offered. Your theatre staff will not experience stress anymore since they will spend less time at work. The custom trays you purchase for your hospital should be purpose-fit for the procedures you carry out there. That way your staff will do their job more efficiently.


How a Custom Tray will Benefit Your Lab

As a clinician, you know that you are going to need a custom surgical pack that contains single-use devices necessary for medical procedures. Most surgical packs contain:

  • Drapes
  • Surgical swabs
  • Sutures
  • Surgical blades
  • Wound dressing

If necessary, you can add specialized devices added to your kits such as implants and cardiac catheters. There are some labs and medical facilities that will set each item of separately and others who use custom trays. Of the two options, using custom trays has more benefits.

Saves Money

Custom trays make it possible for practitioners to carry out procedures faster. According to medical institutions who have switched to using custom trays, they have been able to increase their daily procedures by 30 to 40 percent. Custom trays also save money on the administrative side. Custom trays save time on keeping tabs on all of the inventory and ordering what is needed. Finally, custom trays will save money on deliveries. When custom trays are ordered, it can greatly reduce the number of deliveries necessary.

Saves Time

It can be very time-consuming for the staff to pick and prepare all of the tools necessary for procedures. When custom trays are used, picking and preparing won’t be necessary. Also, custom trays avoid the need to take inventory of various different instruments in stock. The time that is saved by using custom trays


Custom trays are the best option because all of the right equipment will be in the right place. There is nothing worse than a medical professional needing an instrument to find that it isn’t there. When medical facilities create their own trays, it is not uncommon for an item to be missing occasionally due to human error. This wouldn’t be an issue with custom trays. Also, because all of the instruments would be all in one pack, it would make it easier to trace the batch.

Environmental Benefits

Custom trays are environmentally friendly. The amount of waste generated by custom trays is 50 percent less than other tray set-ups.

Increased Efficiency

It doesn’t take long at all to set up a procedure when you are using a custom tray. It also doesn’t take much time to clean up after. This saves the medical facility a great deal of time both before and after the procedures. Thanks to this extra time, more patients can be seen and they can get in and out of the procedure room faster. When a medical facility works at its maximum efficiency, it will result in the facility making more money.

Setting up procedure trays is less expensive, more efficient, and more environmentally friendly than setting up trays before each procedure. Also, there is no risk of forgetting anything before the procedure, which can delay the procedure. Considering all of the benefits of custom trays, more and more medical facilities are using them today.
