Four enzymes are necessary for effectively removing the all forms or surgical bioburden when cleaning surgical instruments, utensils, and scopes. Surgical instrument cleaning enzymes are proteins that act as catalysts to speed up chemical reactions that would otherwise occur at a much slower rate. Surgical instrument cleaning enzymes fit their different forms of target substrates (surgical bioburden) like a lock fits a key. The surgical instrument cleaning enzymes active site is open only to specific target substances with a matching chemical shape. If the substrate doesn't fit, the surgical instrument cleaning enzymes cannot enter and no reaction occurs. This makes the action of surgical instrument cleaning enzymes highly specific for their substrates. For this reason four enzymes are needed for effectively cleaning surgical instruments and removing the surgical 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 into lower level starch molecules for rapid degradation and removal.
What are surgical instrument detergent cleaners with four enzymatic cleaners that clean surgical instruments faster?
Enzyme surgical instrument cleaners that do not offer these four enzymatic cleaners cannot remove all forms of surgical bioburden and will not be as effective for cleaning surgical instruments.
Enzyme surgical instrument cleaners with detergents that lubricate clean residue free.
Enzyme surgical instrument detergent cleaners that can lubricate while the clean surgical instruments replace costly surgical instrument cleaning products.

What are enzymatic surgical instrument cleaner?
Enzyme surgical instrument cleaners fit their target substrates like a lock fits a key. The active site of the enzyme surgical instrument cleaner is open only to specific target substances with a matching chemical. If the substrate doesn't fit 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, removing the bioburden. Protease Enzymes breakdown proteins including blood, Amylase Enzymes breakdown starches and catalyze the hydrolysis of starch, Lipase surgical instrument cleaners enzymes breakdown fats and high level lipids, and Carbohydrase Enzymes breakdown high level starches.
Enzyme surgical instrument cleaners that do not offer these 4 enzymes cannot remove all forms of proteinaceous bioburden and will be as effective for cleaning surgical instruments.
Enzyme Surgical instrument cleaning detergents can clean for long time periods and can be reused. Like other types of catalysts, an enzyme can complete its chemical reaction without being used up or destroyed, leaving the enzyme protein available for yet another reaction. This means that one enzyme protein molecule can act on many substrate molecules. Eventually, all the substrate is gone and the enzyme stops working.
The level of surgical bioburden contained within the enzyme surgical instrument cleaner solution being used for cleaning surgical instruments can become a burden for effective cleaning. The initial decontamination of surgical instruments should begin immediately after the completion of any surgical procedure.
The cleaning of the surgical instruments should be performed as soon as possible after use. The application of a neutral pH four enzyme (enzymatic) detergent will prove to be effective in speeding the cleaning of surgical instruments and will lower the overall handling costs for reprocessing surgical instruments. Used surgical instruments are always considered to be contaminated by unidentified microorganisms and the presence of pathogens is unknown.
The critical cleaning of surgical instruments is necessary for the protection of the patients and healthcare professionals and to prevent the transmission of pathogens.
Manual hand washing surgical instruments, ultrasonic surgical instrument cleaners, automated instrument washers, and washer disinfectors have all proven to be effective if they perform the recognized proper sequence of surgical instrument cleaning treatments.
The proper sequence of surgical instrument cleaning process of treatments which includes cold water ultrasonic cleaner pre-wash with a four enzyme cleaner, elevated temperature washing with a neutral pH detergent, final purified water rinses, and hot air drying with instrument lubrication. Saline causes deterioration of surgical instruments and should never be used when cleaning surgical instruments.
The enzymes used in surgical instrument cleaning enzyme detergents act on materials that make up a variety of stains and soils so that these materials can be washed away more easily. These enzymes are named after the materials they can act upon, for example, protease enzymes break down protein based stains, lipolase enzymes break down lipid fat based stains and amylase enzymes break down starches and other carbohydrate based stains.
Since one enzyme molecule can act on many substrate molecules, a small amount of enzyme added to the surgical instrument cleaner detergent can provide a big cleaning benefit to the consumer. When surgical instruments are not soaked to maintain hydration prior to cleaning, it increases the probability that particles of tissue, bone, and blood will adhered to surgical instruments and resist the surgical instrument cleaning process. This will cause corrosion to surgical instruments and will degrade the passive Layer of protection of the surgical stainless steel. A four enzyme detergent surgical instrument cleaner prewas soak will facilitate the decontamination and cleaning of these surgical instruments and the hard-to-clean surgical instruments.
What are surgical instrument detergent cleaners with enzymes safe for cleaning?
Enzymes are proteins, therefore, they are completely biodegradable. Enzymes are non-toxic to plants and animals in the environment. Enzymes are harmless if accidentally ingested by a child. However enzyme surgical instrument cleaners can cause a respiratory allergy if they are breathed in at high concentrations, frequently, and for long periods of time. This can represent a health issue if the enzymes are not handled properly.
What respiratory allergies are affected by enzyme surgical instrument cleaning detergents?
Frequent inhalation of surgical instrument cleaning enzymes at high concentrations over a long period of time can lead to respiratory allergy among some people. This can occur among people that have to work with surgical instrument cleaning enzymes and when the enzymes are not handled properly. Minimize creating surgical instrument cleaning enzyme aerosols, Use surgical instrument cleaning enzymes in a liquid or foam state to avoid creating aerosols.
Enzyme surgical instrument cleaning detergents are recommended for challenging and rapid cleaning tasks due to their ability to break soil down to a form that can be removed from surfaces that are difficult to clean, and most importantly, deliver the surfactant detergents needed to clean that bioburden from the surface.
The ONE cleaner is designed to be uses aslo as an ultrasonic surgical instrument cleaning solution. Ultrasonic surgical instrument cleaning will fragment and loosen soil but will not necessarily remove the soil from the surface of the surgical instruments being cleaned. Rinsing is recommended following the use of ultrasonic cleaning.
The ONE cleaner surgical instrument cleaning enzyme detergents are recommended for cleaning surgical instruments that are heavily contaminated with encrustation, the emulsification of lipid bioburden, and encased surgical compounds, i.e. bone glues.
