The color-coded system helps staff easily identify types of grafts, which minimizes the amount of time the freez- er door is left open. Before a case, surgeons often want to inspect the available grafts. With the new system it's easy to do. Staff pull the appropriate mesh from the freezer and the mesh bags let surgeons visually inspect each one for size and other parameters. Once the selection is made and the graft is removed, the bag gets zipped back up and placed neatly in the freezer where it can be readily available for later use. Philip B.
