Medkits, also known as medikits, were pouches used by Starfleet medical practitioners and officers that contained medical equipment for away teams. (TNG: "Skin of Evil") In 2269, James T. Kirk referred to Leonard McCoy's medkit as a "little black pouch". (TAS: "Once Upon a Planet")

United Earth scientists took medical kits with them on their missions. In 2153, the Arctic Archaeology Team had a medical kit in one of their research modules. (ENT: "Regeneration")

In the alternate reality, Leonard McCoy brandished a transparent medkit branded with the Starfleet insignia while chasing an ill James T. Kirk to the bridge of the USS Enterprise. (Star Trek)

In the 2260s a medkit was carried separately from the medical tricorder as a supplement. It contained a hypospray preloaded with up to six drugs in suspension, such as cordrazine, Masiform D, a neural paralyzer/melenex, and tri-ox compound. Also included was a spray applicator, a medical scanner, and a palm-sized reader tube.

In the 2370s, the kits were more complex, containing a medical tricorder, a hypospray, a dermal regenerator, and a trauma kit for emergency medical situations.

They were often kept in strategic positions around Starfleet vessels and bases. The USS Voyager had one located behind the tactical console on the bridge. (VOY: "Projections")

A more compact medkit was also employed by Starfleet. It was about the same height as a standard medkit, but not as wide. (VOY: "The Gift")

While stranded on a moon in the Gamma Quadrant, the members of the away team were held prisoners by the Ennis. Doctor Julian Bashir tried to get his medkit from the Ennis Nima back to treat the wounded Major Kira Nerys. (DS9: "Battle Lines")

The USS Enterprise-D kept extra medkits on hand for relief missions. To prove her loyalty to the Maquis, Ro Laren stole a large quantity of them in 2370. (TNG: "Preemptive Strike")

In 2373, Jake Sisko assisted Julian Bashir in distributing medkits to the station's medical staff prior to the Second Battle of Deep Space 9. (DS9: "Call to Arms")
