Rainbow TraysTM Features & FAQ's

  1. Developed and Manufactured in UK
    Rainbow Trays are manufactured in the UK to the highest specification. Using quality materials and innovative techniques to create a world class product that can be delivered nationally and internationally with minimum lead times.
  2. Made from Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET)
    Polyethylene Terephthalate or PET is a completely inert material and highly resistant to bacterial growth making this an ideal substrate for the Rainbow Trays. Both the insert trays and the base trays will provide the best protection for infection control.
  3. Developed by Anaesthetists for Anaesthetists
    Designed and developed by anaesthetists, pharmacists and healthcare workers to provide a safe and universally understood system for storing syringes and ampoules prior to administration in theatre. The aim is to reduce the misadministration of anaesthetic drugs and improve patient safety.
  4. Designed to fit with normal working practices
    The Rainbow Trays will easily integrate into normal working practices that will often include spacial segregation of local and emergency drugs. This means that anaesthetists can adopt the system without changing their own routines.
  5. Accreditations
    Supporting the internationally recognised AAGBI & RCoA critical care labelling system, Rainbow Trays are manufactured to BRC, ISO 9001 & ISO 14001 standards. They are CE marked, FDA accreditation pending, MHRA registered and protected by international patents. They use GS1 barcodes as required by the NHS.
  6. Ideal Training aid
    Because the Rainbow Trays use established colour coding for critical care, the trays are an ideal partner for training new anaesthetists to adopt best practice. The logical progression created helps to ensure the correct drugs are chosen and highlights where coloured labels do not match the colour section
  7. Recyclable
    Manufactured from PET, Rainbow Trays are fully recyclable. All packaging for the Rainbow Trays is also fully recyclable.
  8. Patient Safety
    The reduction of anaesthetic drug misadministration together with superior infection control and safe storage of anaesthetic drugs all deliver improved patient safety
