The ONEcleaner medical surgical instrument cleaning enzyme easy FOAM-it pre wash soaking surgical instrument and scope cleaner. Enzymes are catalysts which help reactions move from a beginning to an end. Catalysts are not used up in the reaction so they are available to help multiple reactions. 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 and 3-dimensional 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 cleaning enzyme detergents go a long way 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. Surgical instrument cleaning enzyme detergents will eventually break down on their own. 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 lipid (fat) based stains and amylases break down starches and other carbohydrate based stains.
Are surgical instrument cleaning enzyme detergents safe?
Enzymes are proteins, therefore, they are completely biodegradable. They are non-toxic to plants and animals in the environment. Frequent inhalation of surgical instrument cleaning enzymes at high concentrations can lead to respiratory allergy among some people. This can occur among people that work with surgical instrument cleaning enzymes and when the enzymes are sprayed. 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. Provide ventilation to avoid excessive exposure to potential surgical instrument cleaning enzyme aerosols.
