Loaner Kit Processing Expertise

For an original equipment manufacturer, loaner kit processing is an unavoidable and burdensome activity which diverts critical resources away from core processes. Outsourcing the process guarantees consistent quality and considerable cost savings on labor, processing, inventory, distribution, and time.

In addition to Kit Processing, Life Science Outsourcing offers loaner program management for clients.

Enhanced Business Benefits

By utilizing our Loaner Kit Processing program, our customers:

  • Maximize the number of surgeries each kit covers
  • Significantly increase kit turn rates
  • Drive down inventory needs
  • Maximize return on investment (ROI)
  • Attain faster turnaround times
  • Reduce overhead costs
  • Reduce shipping costs

Comprehensive Solutions

Kits are cleaned and inspected against current versions of product drawings provided by the OEM. Approved kits are then replenished, reboxed, relabeled, warehoused, and distributed the next day, which maximizes the number of surgeries for devices. Recycling these instruments doesn’t just reduce investment in inventory and duplicative expenditures, but it also enhances the efficiency of sales professionals and the sales process.

Our Loaner Kit Processing program provides:

  • Inventory control and maintenance
  • Controlled storage conditions
  • Field Inventory management
  • Local same day shipping
  • Proprietary quality system
  • Trained processing personnel
  • Late cut-off time for order placement
  • Reduced shipping costs for West Coast orders

Strategically Located

Our location in Brea, CA provides us access to the UPS West Coast overlay, allowing us to process next day shipments anywhere in the U.S. for orders arriving before 7PM PST. Our proximity to both the Los Angeles and San Diego metro areas also allows fast and cost-effective same-day shipments to hospital within those areas.

Life Science Outsourcing provides several levels of loaner kit processing services. Scenarios have been designed based on the level of control the OEM wishes to maintain throughout the process.
