pack-up time
This is about disposable medical products, I understand this as "unpack" in this context, but this is the opposite meaning of the phrasal verb "pack up". Any ideas?

All products are already stacked in the order they will be used: once inside the operating theatre the surgical team will just have to unwrap the pack, thereby making the pack-up time easier and more efficient, thus raising the level of professionalism of the performance

"Unwrap the pack" = unpack.  "Pack-up time" seems to be the time required to replace the items in the pack during surgery.  This procedure has apparently been made easier because the items were originally stacked in a specific order; they can therefore be repacked, one by one, in reverse order as the medical team has finished with each.

This is what I thought originally, but items need not be placed back for later use, since they are disposable.
