For enzyme surgical instrument cleaners to clean effectively, surface cleaning detergents are necessary that will clean soil from the surface. A combination of enzymes cleaners and detergent cleaners are necessary for cleaning surgical instruments effectively.
The ONEcleaner enzymatic detergent surgical instrument cleaners are designed for thoroughly cleaning surgical instruments in less cleaning time and at lower costs. This requires lipase enzymes, amylase enzymes, carbohydrase enzymes and protease enzymes for removing all forms of surgical instrument contamination. All medical enzymes act at the same speed and are of equal strength. The concentration of enzymatic cleaning product being used and the dilution rates determine the speed and the strength of enzymatic cleaning performance. Unlike detergents, higher concentrations of enzymes will deliver higher levels of surgical instrument cleaning. Enzymes alone do not clean. The primary function of enzymes is to break down soil, usually proteinaceous bioburden. For a cleaning product to clean surfactants are necessary that will remove the soil from the surface. A combination of enzymes and detergents are necessary for cleaning. The ONEcleaners replace multiple surgical instrument cleaning, surgical instrument lubricant, and surgical instrument conditioning products. The ONEcleaner enzymatic cleaners lower surgical instrument cleaning costs, clean surgical instruments faster, and clean surgical instruments residue free. The ONEcleaner enzymes are: Lipase Enzymes to breakdown fat to cleave fatty acid residue from the glycerol residue in a neutral fat or a phospholipid, Amylase Enzymes to breakdown starch to catalyze the hydrolysis of starch to sugar to produce carbohydrate derivatives, Carbohydrase Enzymes to breakdown starch to a lower level to catalyze the hydrolysis of higher carbohydrates to lower forms, and Protease Enzymes breakdown blood including the proteinases and peptidases, to catalyze the hydrolytic breakdown of proteins.
