Surgical Instrument Cleaning Enzymes
The removal of emulsified bioburden is the most difficult cleaning challenge. The cleaning capabilities of enzymes are targeted by their design and limited to specific types of bioburden. Enzyme surgical instrument cleaners must deliver the four types of enzymes that target the four types of bioburden that are predominant on soiled surgical instruments. Surgical procedures that involve suction render emulsified forms of bioburden.
The cleaning capabilities of enzymes are targeted by their design and limited to specific types of bioburden. Surgical instrument cleaning enzymes are proteins produced by all living organisms that act as catalysts to speed up chemical reactions that would otherwise occur at a much slower rate or not at all. Catalysts are materials that help reactions move from a beginning to an end. Catalysts are not used up in the reaction so they are available to help multiple reactions. Surgical instrument cleaning Enzymes fit their target substrates like a lock fits a key. The Surgical instrument cleaning enzymes active site is open only to specific target substances with a matching chemical and 3-dimensional shape. If the substrate doesn't fit, the surgical instrument cleaning enzymes can't enter and no reaction occurs. This makes the action of surgical instrument cleaning enzymes highly specific for their substrates. For this reason specific enzymes are needed for cleaning surgical instruments that involves removing bioburden. Protease surgical instrument cleaning enzymes breakdown proteins including blood. Amylase surgical instrument cleaning enzymes breakdown starch and catalyze the hydrolysis of starch. Lipase surgical instrument cleaning enzymes breakdown fats and high level lipids. Carbohydrase surgical instrument cleaning enzymes breakdown high level starches. Enzyme Detergents that do not offer these four enzymes cannot effectively remove all forms of proteinaceous bioburden and will not be as effective for cleaning surgical instruments.
