This allows them to have a lower total cost of ownership, or TCO. 

Don't let the appeal of cheaper upfront costs keep you away from some of the amazing benefits that stainless steel surgical trays can provide your medical practice. 

Why High-Quality Stainless Steel Surgical Trays Reduce TCO

Well-engineered stainless steel surgical trays provide a high lifetime value. Here are some of the ways Marlin's trays reduce TCO.

Outlasts Cheaper Alternatives

Stainless steel metal resists corrosion and scratches, which means a stainless steel surgical tray can withstand the wear and tear of everyday surgical activities. This long-lasting metal looks much nicer and is stronger than its cheaper alternatives.

Plastic surgical trays may have a lower upfront cost, but they don't hold up long. Plastic trays are sometimes only meant for single use, costing you more money in the long run. They are often the best surgical tray for procedures that don't take place in the operating room, but stainless steel trays are meant for continuous long-term use. 

Provides Consistent Protection

Stainless steel medical trays provide consistent protection for delicate medical equipment that is expensive to replace when damaged.

Tools like syringes, scalpels, forceps, surgical swabs, and vein needles are sure to be protected from harmful contaminants, scratches, and other damages when placed on Marlin's stainless steel medical trays during an important medical-tray-2procedure.

They are also resistant to corrosive materials that often come into contact with surgical trays such as salt, blood, cleaning agents, and other foreign materials. 

Ensures Consistent Sterilization

Chemicals can't always rid surfaces of every type of bacteria or virus, but heat can. Stainless steel has a higher temperature tolerance than most other surgical tray materials, which means it can be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized using heat. 

Marlin Steel's trays are also electropolished to create a smooth and even surface. This means they are easier to clean and sanitize.

Another great benefit of stainless steel surgical trays is that they're resistant to sharp medical instruments like scalpels, unlike plastic trays that are gouged easily. Gouges, grooves, and scratches that are often present on plastic trays are places for fluids and contaminants to build up harmful bacteria.

With stainless steel trays, you can be rest assured that there won't be contaminants and fluids hiding in hard-to-reach places.
