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.
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.

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