Medical Enzyme Detergent Cleaners
Four Medical Enzyme Cleaners are Necessary for Effective Cleaning
Each of the four enzymes used for Medical Enzyme Cleaners have a specific function. The four enzymes can remove all forms of surgical bioburden that contaminate surgical instruments scopes, and utensils. The ONEcleaner catalysts delivered with the enzyme cleaners boost the surgical instrument cleaning process. The ONEcleaner enzyme catalysts are not used up in the cleaning treatment and are available for multiple cleaning treatments. Surgical instrument cleaning enzymes fit their target bioburden substrates like a lock fits a key. The surgical instrument cleaning enzymes active site is open only to specific target substances (the surgical bioburden being decontaminated and cleaned). If the enzyme substrate doesn't match the key (the type of bioburden), the surgical instrument cleaning enzymes can't enter and no cleaning reaction occurs. This makes the action of surgical instrument cleaning enzymes highly specific for type of bioburden being cleaned. For this reason specific enzymes are needed for cleaning bioburden from surgical instruments. The four enzymes necessary for effective cleaning are: protease medical enzyme cleaners to breakdown proteins including blood, amylase medical enzyme cleaners to breakdown starch and catalyze the hydrolysis of starch, lipase medical enzyme cleaners to breakdown fats and high level lipids, and carbohydrase medical enzyme cleaners to breakdown high level starches. Medical enzyme detergents that do not offer these four enzymes cannot remove all forms of proteinaceous bioburden and will not be as effective for cleaning surgical instruments. When bioburden has been emulsified, i.e. during suction, the bioburden becomes more challenging to remove, particularly lipids and proteins. Highly concentrated protease medical enzyme cleaners and lipase medical enzyme cleaners are necessary.
