The goal of a medical instrument cleaning solution is to break down and remove all forms of bioburden, stains, and mineral encrustations from contaminated medical instruments, rendering them residue free.
All of manufacturers of medical instrument enzyme cleaners purchase their enzymes from the same manufactures sources and all of the enzymes perform in an identical manner. The differences in performance, from one enzymatic cleaner to another enzymatic cleaner, is determined by the concentration of the enzymes within the product, the combination of the multiple enzymes, and the combination of the enzymes with other cleaning ingredients, such as: surface cleaning detergents, water softeners, surface conditioners, and medical instrument lubricant.
Optimal Cleaning Performance Temperatures
The optimal temperature for maximum enzymatic enzyme detergent cleaning performance peaks at 137 degrees Fahrenheit (137 degree Fahrenheit = 58.33 degree Celsius). The cleaning activity of the enzyme detergents at temperatures below and above this point is less but does offer cleaning value. The cleaning activity of the enzyme does not stop at this temperature but is does lessen as the temperature increases or decreases.

Optimal Dosage Rates
The optimal dosage rate (ounces diluted per carrier solution, usually neutral pH water) is a function of the types of enzymes within the enzyme cleaning concentrate and the concentration level of those enzymes.
Four types of enzymes use for medical instrument cleaners.
Lipase Enzymes: break down fat to cleave fatty acid residue from the glycerol residue in a neutral fat or a phospholipid.
Amylase Enzymes: break down starch to catalyze the hydrolysis of starch to sugar to produce carbohydrate derivatives.
Carbohydrase Enzymes: break down starch to a lower level to catalyze the hydrolysis of higher carbohydrates to lower forms.
Protease Enzymes: break down blood including the proteinases and peptidases, to catalyze the hydrolytic breakdown of proteins.
