Different Ways of Packaging Custom Trays?


Custom surgical trays are highly famed for their convenience. Their ability to bundle multiple functionality onto one tray not only makes them theater friendly but also makes the easier to transport and dispose. Since custom tray designers will always have packing and racking in mind, they will put them in the best packing options possible.

What Determines the Packing Approach

The custom tray packing options will determine your options. The most popular types of custom trays include

  • Single procedure trays
  • On the go kits
  • Surgical trays with stands
  • Perforated instrument trays
  • Covered and stackable trays

On the go surgical trays with stands are the easiest to pack as they are collapsible and designed to occupy the minimum space possible. Covered and stackable trays will also stack easy if they are designed to fit together while single procedure trays tend to be compact and fit into their official packaging boxes even better.

Stick to the Manufacturer’s Packaging

Custom tray packaging focuses on practicality and most importantly the aspect of keeping the trays sterile at all time. With manufacturers creating custom trays for different applications, chances are that you will always have a design and transportation rack that suits your specific needs. This means that there is little or nothing to worry about when venturing into the custom tray world.

Convenience is the Main Advantage

Convenience and adaptability is the very driving force behind any custom tray adoption. They take away that extra maintenance and management step that clinic management has to instill when storing and preparing traditional trays.

This extends over to disposal. The custom tray can go back to the packaging it came in or you can slip them into clinical bags ready for disposal. If you are lucky, choose something that allows you to repackage without posing a biohazard. This will help you tap deeper into the benefits of custom trays.

Packaging a custom tray stock might sound like a complication to anyone who was used to traditional surgical supplies and trays. However, the fact that the manufacturer has adapted everything to suite your use case means that the trays will store away almost naturally.

This is why custom trays more of a convenience. They are a perfect way to increase efficiency in the operation room by limiting the number of procedures needed to get the right equipment from the store, use it and dispose it off safely.
