Procedure Kit/Trays, Blood Culture Sample

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (either custom or standard kits) needed for obtaining samples of a patient's blood for microbiological culture. Items in these kits usually include a blood collector, a sterile scrub applicator, needles, a needle holder, a specimen transport bag, and alcohol prep pads. The kits are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. These procedure kits and trays are intended for in-vitro detection of infections present in the bloodstream (e.g., bacteremia, septicemia). Blood culture procedure kits and trays are used in medical offices, hospitals (e.g., clinical laboratories), and/or in other healthcare facilities.
