The four enzymes used within the ONEcleaner enzyme surgical instrument cleaning detergents include: 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 to breakdown blood including the proteinases and peptidases, to catalyze the hydrolytic breakdown of proteins. The use of enzymatic surgical instrument cleaners provides more effective cleaning outcomes and the use of lower washing temperatures and shorter cleaning times.

The medical enzyme surgical instrument cleaner optimal temperature for cleaning performance peaks at 137 degrees F, 58.33 degrees C. The cleaning activity of enzyme detergent cleaners does not stop at this temperature but is does lessen as the temperature increases. The ONEcleaner enzyme detergent cleaner dosage rates are highly concentrated. Some manufacturers suggest that a significantly smaller dosage of their enzyme detergent surgical instrument cleaners are needed, but do not specifically state how effective their enzymatic enzyme detergent is, at that dosage level. A factor affecting the efficacy of enzyme detergent surgical instrument cleaners is the concentration level of the enzyme detergent, as it is packaged. It is important that the enzymatic enzyme detergents deliver each of the four enzymes necessary for removing bioburden at appropriate concentration levels for cleaning prior to sterilizing surgical instruments Multi Enzyme Surgical Instrument Cleaners are lacking the four enzymes necessary, as well as the concentration level of each of the four enzyme detergents needed, for effective cleaning. The ONEcleaner enzyme detergent surgical instrument cleaners: remove proteinaceous bioburden, dissolve mineral encrustation, remove stains, and enhance the passive layer of stainless steel. The ONEcleaner enzymatic surgical instrument detergents are free rinsing to render a residue free surface and designed to condition the source water, to counter the potential pitting and staining effects of hard water. Surgical instrument cleaners with enzymes have been associated with respiratory allergies in a response when exposed to inhaling enzyme protein cleaner aerosols. Frequent inhalation of surgical instrument cleaning enzymes at high concentrations over a long period of time can lead to respiratory allergy among some people. Employees exposed to very high levels of airborne enzymes can develop respiratory allergies. Steps to avoid the health risks to employees by reducing the amount of airborne enzymes from medical enzymatic surgical instrument cleaners should minimize creating enzyme aerosols. Use surgical instrument cleaning enzymes in a liquid or foam state to avoid creating aerosols. The ONEcleaner is for surgical instrument washer disinfectors cycles and automated high pressure or low pressure high flow automated surgical instrument washer sterilizers for use as multi tasking, enzyme detergent, stain removing, highly concentrated surgical instrument cleaners that clean residue free.
