Four enzyme surgical instrument cleaning enzymes are designed for cleaning surgical instruments residue free. It is commonly stated that enzymes clean. Enzymes alone do not clean. The primary function of enzymes is to break down soil, usually surgical bioburden. For a cleaning product to clean the surface, surfactants are necessary, that will remove the soil from the surface.
A combination of enzymes and detergents is necessary for the cleaning process to be effective. Enzymes and detergent combination products are referred to as enzymatic enzyme detergents or all-in-one enzymatic enzyme detergents surgical instrument cleaners. 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. The enzymes are not used up in the cleaning process so they are available to help multiple cleaning treatments. Enzymes fit their target substrates like a lock fits a key.The active site of the enzyme is open only to specific target substances substrates with a matching chemical shape. If the substrate doesn't fit, it can't enter and no reaction occurs. This makes the action of surgical instrument cleaning enzymes highly specific for their substrates. Surgical instrument enzyme cleaners go a long way and can be reused. An enzyme can complete its chemical reaction without being used up or destroyed, leaving the enzyme protein available for another cleaning treatment. Surgical instrument cleaning detergent enzymes will eventually break down on their own. Why is this important in a detergent? 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, proteases break down protein based stains, lipolases break down lipids (fats) based stains and amylases break down starches and other carbohydrate based stains. Surgical Instrument Cleaning Enzymes for cleaning surgical instruments residue free. Are surgical instrument enzyme cleaners safe? Enzymes are proteins, therefore, they are completely biodegradable. They are non-toxic to plants and animals in the environment. They are harmless if accidentally ingested by a child. However, like many other proteins, enzymes can cause respiratory allergy in some people if they are breathed in at very high concentrations, frequently, and for long periods of time. This doesn't pose a safety issue for consumers who use laundry detergents. However, this can represent a health issue for people that work in enzyme making facilities and in detergent production facilities, especially if enzymes and surgical instrument detergents are not handled properly. Surgical Instrument Enzyme Cleaners, for cleaning surgical instruments, must clean residue free. What's a surgical instrument cleaning enzyme respiratory allergy? As mentioned above, surgical instrument cleaning enzymes are proteins. 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. Surgical Instrument Cleaning Enzymes should not be sprayed. There are washer disinfector detergent products that foam the enzymes. Surgical instrument cleaning enzymes in the workplace. Steps to avoid the health risk to employees by reducing the amount of airborne surgical instrument cleaning enzymes in the workplace. Minimize creating surgical instrument cleaning enzyme aerosols. Use surgical instrument cleaning enzymes in a liquid or foam state to avoid creating aerosols. When surgical instrument cleaning enzymes are used with ultrasonic cleaning always keep the tank lid closed. Surgical Instrument Cleaning Enzymes should not be sprayed. The ONEcleaner washer disinfector detergents and neutral pH, highly concentrated, lubricating enzyme products such as the soaking medical enzyme detergent safely foam the application of enzymes.
