An Inexpensive Way to Transport Dirty Endoscopes

We transport endoscopes from the procedure room to the cleaning room in big Ziploc-like bags. The disposable bags seal closed like a sandwich bag to prevent potential exposure to staff while transporting soiled scopes from the procedure room to the cleaning room. They're much less expensive than commercial transport kits, and take up much less storage space.
