Washer Sterilizers 
It is widely understood that "Washer Sterilizers" do not sterilize surgical Instruments. Then why do we call them "Washer Sterilizers" ?  Surgical Instrument Washers, Washer Decontaminators Washer Disinfectors were referred to as "Washer Sterilizers" by manufacturers prior to the FDA regulations that require approval for a products marketing terminology is based on evidence of product efficacy. Products, such as Washer Sterilizers, that were manufactured prior to the the FDA Regulations can continue to call their products by their pre-regulation terminology. The only products that can be called "Washer Sterilizers" are those that were being manufactured prior to the enactment of the FDA Regulations. It has been demonstrated that a properly designed Surgical Instrument Washers (Washer Decontaminators and/or Washer Disinfectors) can consistently deliver surgical instruments that are sterile. Surgical Instrument Washers are not intended to be Washer Sterilizers. One research study states: "All instruments and utensils tested were sterile at the completion of the process." Endoscope Cleaning Sponges present a barrier to risk of exposure to unidentified microorganisms.  Click Here to review the APIC Abstract. This study was initiated to discover a higher quality cleaning outcome and an acceptable replacement for the "Washer Sterilizer". Nothing cleans faster than the 4 Enzyme Surgical Instrument Detergent. Nothing will lower your cleaning costs as much as the all-in-ONE Enzyme Surgical Instrument Detergent, and we guarantee it. 
Surgical instrument Cleaner Endoscope Cleaner Enzyme Detergent Product Usage: 
The use of Surgical instrument Endoscope Enzyme Detergent Cleaners of various compositions and concentrations is becoming common. Over half of all Surgical instrument Endoscope Enzyme Detergent Cleaners available contain enzymes. The enzymatic enzyme detergent cleaner industry is the largest single market for enzymes, at rate of 25 - 30% of total sales. Details of which enzymes are used within enzymatic enzyme detergent cleaners and the ways in which they are best used, are rarely been published. 
Surgical instrument Endoscope Enzyme Detergent Cleaner Mis Understandings: 
Common misunderstandings exist pertaining to the application of  Surgical instrument Endoscope Enzyme Detergent Cleaners including the times and temperatures for optimal cleaning outcomes. Although generalities can be misleading for specific applications there are parameters for the use of  Surgical instrument Endoscope Enzyme Detergent Cleaners that will consistently render a high probability of excellent cleaning outcomes. 
Surgical instrument Endoscope Enzyme Detergent Cleaner Optimal Temperatures: 
The optimal temperature for maximum  Surgical instrument Endoscope Enzyme Detergent Cleaners 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  Surgical instrument Endoscope Enzyme Detergent Cleaners does not stop at this temperature but is does lessen as the temperature. 
Endoscope Cleaning Sponges offer an additional margin of worker safety when cleaning Endoscope manually and render high quality cleaning results.
