Recommended procedure for manually cleaning surgical instruments is to first soak the surgical instruments in tepid or lukewarm water with an enzyme detergent for at least 10 minutes, or until soil on the instrument is softened.
Enzymatic surgical instrument soaking cleaners should only be used in a liquid or foam state, to avoid creating aerosols. Enzyme aerosols from spraying enzyme cleaners have been associated with respiratory irritations. OSHA recommends that when spraying enzyme cleaners ventilation should be used to avoid the exposure to enzyme cleaner aerosols. The easy FOAM-it avoids aerosols.
easy FOAM-it soaking medical instrument cleaning FOAM delivers medical enzyme cleaners, surface cleaning detergents, and a water soluble surgical instrument lubricant that maintains moving parts.
ONEcleaner soaking enzyme detergent medical instrument cleaners rapidly break down and remove stains, mineral encrustations, and all forms of surgical bioburden.
easy FOAM-it soaking enzyme detergent cleaners include a bacteriostatic agent that prevents the growth of microorganisms.
The easy FOAM-it is packaged as: 0225-32, soaking FOAM enzyme detergent surgical instrument cleaner with surface lubricant, 12 each, 32 ounce bottles with foam applicators, for rapidly removing dried on debris and stains.
Manufacturers of surgical instruments recommend using only neutral pH medical instrument cleaners for soaking, cleaning, and lubrication of medical surgical instruments.
The neutral pH easy FOAM-it soaking enzymatic medical instrument soaking cleaners have been shown to optimize the protective power of the surgical instruments passive layer. This provides a longer life for surgical instruments.
The easy FOAM-it medical instrument soaking formulation includes highly concentrated, neutral pH, water soluble, temperature activated surgical instrument lubricants that build the strength of the passive layer to prevent corrosion. Newer surgical instruments have not had the time to build up the chromium oxide passive protective layer. Proper cleaning will strengthen the passive layer. Improper surgical instruments cleaning can cause the layer of chromium oxide to become damaged which increases the possibility of surgical instrument corrosion and pitting.
Proper medical surgical instrument soaking and cleaning hardens the passive layer of chromium oxide, increasing the protection against corrosion and pitting.
