Innovation Infusion: The Remarkable Transformation of a Lakeside 711 Stainless Steel Utility Cart

The Backstory of the Specimen Cart:

In the healthcare industry, efficiency and precision are critical. Laboratories require equipment that can handle sensitive test tubes and other specimens while also being easy to transport and maneuver. That's why Lakeside was thrilled when a top-tier hospital reached out to us for a customized version of our Lakeside 711 Stainless Steel Utility Cart. The lab was looking for a customized cart that could safely hold and transport their specimen rack from one location to another. So, without further adieu, let’s dive into the remarkable transformation of the 711 into a cutting-edge specimen cart.

How We Executed It:

At Lakeside, we take pride in providing innovative and sustainable solutions that meet the needs of our customers. Our team worked closely with the lab to ensure that the revamped Lakeside 711 Stainless Steel Utility Cart was precisely what they required. We started by adding horizontal square tube supports to prevent tipping and spills, ensuring that the utility cart would be safe and efficient for transporting sensitive specimen vials and their contaminants.

To ensure accuracy and precision, we meticulously verified measurements and fit with the lab. The result? A cart that can securely hold a custom-sized 18” x 27.5” tray and has a maximum shelf weight capacity of 200-Lb. With fully welded seams and leg bumpers on all four legs, the specimen cart was designed for durability and longevity.

The lack of a handle on the specimen cart allows for easy access from both sides. Additionally, the utility cart features four 5” swivel casters, making it easy to maneuver and move around the lab. This customized Lakeside 711 Stainless Steel Utility is perfect for labs of all sizes, and its durable stainless steel construction will ensure that it lasts for years to come.

The remarkable transformation of the Lakeside 711 Stainless Steel Utility Cart into a cutting-edge specimen cart is a testament to the innovative and sustainable solutions we provide at Lakeside.
