Medication tray identification

Hi everyone,
Our facility dispenses various types of medication trays that look similar - Adult/Peds code tray, L&D epidural trays, aws trays, endoscopy trays, etc. The distinguishing factors are the label on the side and the paper of contents and rph signature on the top, and then the trays are sealed in clear plastic.
Are there any other ways your teams are distinguishing the trays your facility uses?
