Rainbow Trays™ are an innovative but simple product that make a significant contribution to patient safety in all areas where anaesthesia is delivered.

Human factor engineered Rainbow Trays support the ISO26825:2020 colour coded critical care labelling system to reduce cognitive load, especially when working stressed or fatigued.

The compartmentalisation of drugs by type, in an order of progression that is standardised, provides a system that reduces the impacts of distractions and maintains the organisation of ampoules and syringes throughout the procedure for effective checking at all stages of administration.

Rainbow Trays™ provide a clean bacteriostatic environment for the transportation, storage and administration of anaesthetic drugs that allows for the segregation of routine, local and emergency drugs.

Rainbow Trays™ are the subject of a number of published papers to evidence the systematic, organisational and cognitive benefits that they deliver. Additional literature of interest that supports the standardisation of anaesthetic drug administration are also referenced.

Rainbow Trays take-back service

Used Rainbow Trays Collection Service for safe recycling into new products (including new Rainbow trays).

• No hassle
• No cost
• No environmental impact

We understand the frustration for healthcare workers who want to deal with waste generated at work in a sustainable way.

Whilst Rainbow Trays are 100% recyclable, there may not always be facilities to do this within their departments, so recyclable waste unnecessarily defaults to less sustainable and more expensive alternatives such as clinical waste.

Our new Rainbow Trays returns facility simply requires the return of Rainbow Trays in the original box using a pre-paid carriage label and we will do the rest.
