Common misunderstandings exist pertaining to the application of enzymatic enzyme detergent surgical instrument cleaners including the times and temperatures for optimal cleaning outcomes. There are parameters for the use of enzymatic enzyme detergents that can render a high probability of excellent cleaning outcomes. It is commonly stated that enzymes clean. Enzymes alone do not clean. The primary function of enzymes is to break down soil, usually proteinaceous bioburden. For a cleaning product to clean effectively, surfactants are necessary that will remove the soil from the surface. A combination of enzymes and detergents is necessary for cleaning effectively. Enzyme detergent combination products are referred to as enzymatic detergents, enzyme detergents, or all-in-one enzyme detergent surgical instrument cleaners. The optimal temperature for maximum enzymatic enzyme detergent surgical instrument cleaner performance peaks at 137 degrees fahrenheit (58.33 degree celsius). The detergent cleaners typically peak performance at 185 degrees fahrenheit (85 degree celsius). The peak performance for the enzymes and the detergents represent the top of a bell curve with increasing and decreasing enzymatic enzyme detergent performance to each side the peak.

Dosage rate claims as to the cleaning results promised from very small dosage rates of enzymatic enzyme detergent can be misleading. Due to the wide variance of potential applications, the only dosage rates that can be attributed to a level of enzymatic enzyme detergent cleaning performance are those dosage rates that have been observed within your facility to render the cleaning outcomes required. The optimal enzymatic enzyme detergent dosage rate (amount diluted per quantity of carrier solution, usually ounces per gallon of neutral pH water) is a function of the types of enzymes and the concentration level of enzymes within the enzymatic enzyme detergent product. Detergents can render inferior performance with higher levels of concentration. Enzymes can render better performance at higher levels of concentration. To determine the optimal (lowest dosage with highest cleaning result) amount of enzymatic enzyme detergent to use, begin with the dosage recommended by the manufacture and then titrate the dosage higher or lower based on your cleaning outcomes. The cost of enzymatic enzyme detergents products is reconciled by their performance and your cost benefit analysis will be reconciled by the savings in the quantity of enzymatic enzyme detergents used.

The optimal application time for maximum enzymatic enzyme detergent cleaning performance depends of the level of soil hydration/encrustation, the amount of soil, and the mass of items being cleaned. Claims as to enzymatic enzyme detergent products “cleaning within minutes” are fallacious without specifics as to the above parameters. The types of enzymes potentially used within enzymatic enzyme detergents: 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. Protease Enzymes to breakdown blood, including the proteinases and peptidases, to catalyze the hydrolytic breakdown of proteins. The use of enzymatic enzyme detergents allows lower temperatures and shorter periods of mechanical cleaning to be employed, often after a preliminary period of soaking. In general, enzyme detergents remove protein from clothes soiled with blood, milk, sweat, grass, etc. far more effectively than non-enzyme detergents. At present only protease and amylase are commonly used. Although a wide range of lipases is known, it is only very recently that lipases suitable for use in detergent preparations have been deployed.

Enzymatic enzyme detergent surgical instrument cleaners must be cost-effective and safe to use. Early attempts to use protease floundered because users developed hypersensitivity. This was combated by developing dust-free granulates (about 0.5 mm in diameter) in which the enzyme is incorporated into an inner core, containing inorganic salts (e.g. NaCI) and sugars as preservative, bound with reinforcing, fibers of carboxymethyl cellulose or similar protective colloid. This core is coated with inert waxy materials made from paraffin oil or polyethylene glycol plus various hydrophilic binders, which later disperse in the wash. This combination of materials both prevents dust formation and protects the enzymes against damage by other detergent components during storage. It has been reported that spraying enzymatic enzyme detergent surgical instrument cleaning products has resulted in respiratory irritations. It is suspected that this is due to the enzyme aerosols. Applying the enzymatic enzyme detergent in a liquid of foam state should avoid this potential complication.

A recent trend is to reduce this phosphate content within enzymatic enzyme detergents for environmental reasons. It may be replaced by sodium carbonate plus extra protease. There is no reason that correlates with product efficacy for an enzymatic enzyme detergent to be other than green. The enzymes used for enzymatic enzyme detergents are produced using species of Bacillus, mainly by just two companies. Novo Industri A/S produce supply three protease, Alcalase, from B. licheniformis, Esperase, from an alkalophilic strain of a B. licheniformis and Savinase, from an alkalophilic strain of B, amyloliquefaciens is often mistakenly attributed to B. subtilis. GistBrocades produce and supply Maxatase, from B. licheniformis. Alcalase and Maxatase, both mainly subtilisin are recommended for use at 10-65°C and pH 7-10.5. Savinase and Esperase may be used at up to pH 11 and 12, respectively. The a-amylase supplied for detergent use is Termamyl, the enzyme from B. licheniformis which is also used in the production of glucose syrups. The a-Amylase is particularly useful in washing glassware and with de-starching detergents.

Enzymatic enzyme detergent surgical instrument cleaners, in a non-ionic surfactant, are available for formulating in liquid 'spotting' concentrates, and are typically used for removing stubborn stains. Preparations containing both Termamyl and Alcalase are produced. Termamyl is sufficiently resistant to proteolysis to retain activity long enough to fulfill its cleaning function. It should be noted that all the enzymatic enzyme detergent proteolytic enzyme surgical instrument cleaners described are non-specific serine endoproteases, giving preferred cleavage on the carboxyl side of hydrophobic amino acid residues but capable of hydrolysing most peptide links. They convert their substrates into small, readily soluble fragments which can be removed easily from fabrics. Only serine protease; may be used in enzymatic enzyme detergent formulations: thiol proteases (e.g. papain) would be oxidized by the bleaching agents, and metalloproteases (e.g. thermolysin) would lose their metal cofactors due to the reaction with the water softening agents or hydroxyl ions. There are opportunities to extend the use of enzymatic enzyme detergent surgical instrument cleaners. The recent availability of a suitable lipase may increase the quantities of enzymes employed. There are, perhaps, opportunities for enzymes such as glucose oxidase, lipoxygenase and glycerol oxidase as means of generating hydrogen peroxide in situ. Added peroxidases may aid the bleaching efficacy of this peroxide.
