Surgical Instrument Detergent Enzyme Cleaners
Enzymatic Cleaners are biodegradable, non-toxic cleaning agents. While an enzymatic cleaner is a special type of cleaning agent, its uses are not confined to any particular product. Enzymatic cleaners can be used on various home and personal items including carpets, laundry, and contact lenses. Enzymatic cleaners are popular because of their ability to break down soils, stains, and other debris with the use of natural enzymes. Typically, the enzymes used to create an enzymatic cleaner include species of the bacteria Bacillus. Protease Enzymatic Cleaners and amylase Enzymatic Cleaners are used the most, though lipases have also been known to be incorporated into detergent formulations. Enzymatic Cleaners function differently. Protease Enzymatic Cleaners combat protein-based stains, amylase Enzymatic Cleaners work on carbohydrates and starches, and lipase Enzymatic Cleaners break down lipids or fats. Enzymatic surgical instrument detergents use proteins that produced by living organisms. The enzymatic surgical instrument detergents act as catalysts to speed up chemical reactions that would otherwise occur at a much slower rate. The enzymatic surgical instrument detergent catalysts are materials that help reactions move from a beginning to an end. The enzymatic surgical instrument detergent catalysts are not consumed in the reaction so they are available to help multiple reactions. Enzymatic surgical instrument detergents fit their target substrates like a lock fits a key. The activity of the enzymatic surgical instrument detergent is open only to specific target substances with a matching chemical and 3 dimensional shape. If the substrate doesn't fit, no reaction occurs. This makes the action of surgical instrument cleaning enzymes highly specific for their substrates.
