White Paper: Packaging & Sterilization
Current Trends in Medical Kit Packaging
In days of yore, when house calls were common, physicians used black leather bags to tote instruments from appointment to appointment. Those medical bags are long gone, but the logic behind them - a portable, organized, easily accessible repository for medical supplies - remains. Today’s version is the medical procedure kit, comprising stackable, efficient, sterile and easily identifiable trays or pouches stocked with essential equipment for specific surgeries, tests and examinations. Their advantages include today’s top healthcare must-haves: improvements in safety and reductions in risk, time and cost.
