The B-Lok Tray and locking cover work together to give the user the most efficient method of infection control. After the instruments and items have been sterilized, putting them in a tray with a locking cover keeps instruments/materials protected until they are ready for the procedure.
After a procedure, the contaminated instruments and items may be put back into the tray with a locking cover to help prevent cross-contamination and provide safe transportation back to the sterilization area.
"When you think of all the different dental products you use, a tray probably isn’t at the top of your list. At the same time, it’s something you use every day, with every patient. What’s more, your use of a tray is probably leading to an OSHA violation and you don’t even realize it. Zirc’s B-Lok Tray and locking cover solves this problem. After your instruments and items have been sterilized, putting them into a tray with a locking cover keeps everything protected until it’s time to use them. After you've used them, putting the items back into the tray and locking the cover helps prevent cross-contamination and provides safe transportation back to the sterilization area. While a tray may not be the most exciting product you use during the day, it’s a critical component regarding instrument transfer and OSHA compliance." –Kara Vavrosky, RDH
