  • Custom procedure packs: Wound treatment kits continue to dominate shipments from China, but several suppliers are expanding selections for specific outpatient procedures. A number of companies are scaling up production of male circumcision kits for Africa, where there are government initiatives to encourage the practice and make the process safer. The sets usually include gloves, syringes and forceps.
