medical enzyme detergent cleaners
Medical enzymes working with surface cleaning detergents effectively break down and remove debris from medical instruments.
Four medical enzymes are necessary to break down all forms of surgical bioburden on soiled medical instruments. Surgical instrument cleaners that do not contain these four enzymes cannot effectively break down all forms of contamination. Surface cleaning detergents remove the debris while the enzymes beak down surgical bioburden from medical instruments.
Using an eye surgical instrument cleaner is effective for removing emulsified lipids and proteins. For the cleaning of medical instruments to be thorough, the four enzymes are needed are; lipase enzymes remove fat, amylase enzymes remove starch, carbohydrase enzymes remove high starches, and protease enzymes to remove proteins, such as blood.
ONEcleaner medical enzyme detergents have been shown to be effective in optimizing the passive oxide layer protection against medical instrument corrosion. This provides longer life for stainless steel surgery instruments. Surgical instrument enzyme or detergent cleaners with a high or low pH have been shown to erode the passive layer. The most common of these cleaning products use an alkaline detergent with an acid neutralizer.
Virtually all manufacturers of medical instruments, and other stainless steel or metallic medical products, recommend using neutral ph medical enzymatic and detergent medical instrument cleaners.
