In addition to our traditional hospital customers, Medline also works with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), pharmaceutical manufacturers, laboratories, kit packers as well as other manufacturers of medical devices. Our focus on innovation, as well as user-focused products and services, enables Medline to form these partnerships to develop and manufacture custom products and kits.
Examples of some of our custom-developed products include:
- Customised equipment drapes and covers for touchscreens and monitors, surgical robot arms and microscope handles
- Customised non-sterile components, which are not available in our catalogue, for surgical kits.
We can also assemble custom-branded sterile procedure trays (SPTs) and kits for you, complete with your name, logo and branding.
