Spinal Needles and Trays

Standardizing to BD components in BD trays can save up to 20% on your spinal tray costs.1 BD can review your spinal anesthesia product use and your procedural preferences, and suggest alternatives that may improve the efficiency of your current practice.


BD custom tray programs help to reduce waste through standardization of tray components.
