CASE Study No. 1:
THE CHALLENGE: Monitoring the cleanliness of hospital kidney-shaped bowls, trays and containers that are made out of plastic and metal when being used for medical procedures. How can the facilities know the hygiene level of the container before it is utilized in a clean-room setting? Hospitals and operating rooms were in need of a contamination-free zone and a container with a guaranteed sterility. Why isn’t there a practical, sustainable, and reliable single use medical tray?
THE SOLUTION: Manufacture a kidney-shaped bowl that would be used just once and then discarded. In addition, the container would need to be independently tested to be sure it is suitable for the surgical environment. The idea was to make the product single-use only, to ensure a clean environment.
THE RESULT: The world’s first single-use autoclavable tray for the operating theatre. MPE is extremely proud of the this bowl for many reasons. First and foremost, it is a single-use container and it has the ability be autoclaved which plastic bowls cannot. This product is environmentally friendly because it is derived from virgin sustainable fibers that are biodegradable and sustainable. Unlike single use plastic utensils, these utensils can be autoclaved. They do not insulate or impede heat transfer to instruments and they will not distort or change morphology.
