Sterile Tube

The Sterile Tube concept consists of a packaging solution that uses two tubes where one fits into the other to allow a streamlined and secure transfer of sterile implants into the sterile field. The tube shape is similar to the round screw shape, suggesting a “screw rack-like” handling to help with your transition to sterile packed screws.
