Hospital study finds implementation of InstruSafe’s Instrument Protection Trays resulted in a 34% savings in surgical instrument repair and replacement costs

InstruSafe® by Summit Medical, an Innovia Medical Company, introduces the new InstruSafe® XL Transport Container — the first and only container of its size on the market — designed to accommodate da Vinci­® SP, Xi™ Scopes, EndoWrist®  and other long laparoscopic surgical instruments. The XL Transport Container extends Summit Medical’s leadership in manufacturing InstruSafe Instrument Protection Trays that are custom designed to protect virtually any surgical instrumentation from the sterile processing to the operating room. 

“Dated plastic trays of the past break down and warp while preventing optimum sterilization and protection for today’s intricate — and expensive — surgical instruments,” said Marcus Super, Director of InstruSafe Sales and Marketing. “InstruSafe’s Instrument Protection Trays — and now the new XL Transport Container — represent our ongoing commitment to collaborating with our customers to meet their distinct needs as advancements in surgical instrumentation continue to evolve.”

With InstruSafe’s XL Transport Container, the cleaning process for da Vinci and other laparoscopic instruments can now start in the O.R. for more efficient and safe reprocessing and transport. The large, horizontal container features an inner gasket, lid and four silicone latches to reduce spills, and a drain to accommodate soiled liquid removal.  InstruSafe’s products are designed to protect delicate surgical instruments from unnecessary damage.  A recent study conducted at Altru Hospital in Grand Forks, ND, found that using custom InstruSafe Instrument Protection Trays for cataract surgery resulted in a 34% savings in instrument repair and replacement costs.

InstruSafe Instrument Protection Trays are designed to ensure maximum exposure to sterilant, and unlike traditional trays, InstruSafe trays have undergone rigorous testing before receiving multiple FDA 510(k) clearances for various cycles. To learn more about InstruSafe’s Instrument Protection Trays and the new InstruSafe XL Transport Container for da Vinci SP, Xi, and EndoWrist and other long laparoscopic surgical instruments, visit
