I am working on some instructions for cleaning, maintenance and sterilization of surgical instruments and this term comes up.

Context:

Instrumentensets koennen zur Sterilisation in speziell dafuer vorgesehene Instrumentensiebeinsaetze oder in Allzwecksiebeinsaetze eingelegt werden.

Are these instrument trays?

Explanation:
There is a large variety of different basket and tray inserts used for sterilizing surgical instruments. These are called anything from sterilizer basket, wire mesh basket, wire sterilization basket, perforated instrument tray, etc.

For example, perforated trays usually have larger holes and a sturdier design, whereas mesh baskets are made out of fine wire (usually used for smaller instruments).

agree  casper: I would avoid "...for sterilizing surgical instruments" in the translation. As the webpage reference states, the baskets can be used "...for storage, transportation and sterilizing".
