Mechanical surgical instrument cleaning treatments include: cold water surgical instrument pre-wash, ultrasonic surgical instrument cleaner, surgical instrument detergent wash, purified water surgical instrument rinses, and hot air surgical instrument drying. Chemical surgical instrument cleaning treatments include: enzyme surgical instrument cleaners, detergent surgical instrument cleaner, surgical instrument surface conditioners, and surgical instrument lubricants. Study illustrates the results of cleaning surgical instruments using an automated Surgical Instrument Washer Disinfector and an enzyme detergent lubricant cleaner: the evaluation of the Surgical Instrument Washer using an enzyme detergent lubricant cleaner confirmed that the efficacy of disinfection was 100%. All instruments and utensils tested were sterile at the completion of the process.

The mechanical surgical instrument cleaning treatments and the chemical surgical instrument cleaning treatments include 9 basic cleaning treatments. Surgical instrument cleaning detergents should clean to enhance the passive layer, to avoid surgical instrument pitting surgical instrument corrosion.

The primary purpose of cleaning surgical instruments is to remove all inorganic and organic proteinaceous bioburden material from the internal and external surfaces cleaning surgical instruments inside and out with careful attention to cleaning cannulated surgical instruments. The secondary purpose of cleaning surgical instruments is to maintain and improve the “passive Layer” of surgical stainless steel. The passive layer is provided by the manufacturer of the surgical instruments, within the surgical stainless steel, to resist (prevent) corrosion. Proper cleaning of the surgical instrument will maintain and improve this passive layer, Stainless Steel passivation. Your first-line-of-defense against Preventing Corrosion is maintaining the "passive layer" of Surgical Instruments. Stainless Steel passivation. Stainless steel surgery instruments are made of corrosion resistant high-grade specialty steels.   Manufacturers of surgery instruments and surgical instrument containers recommend the use of neutral pH cleaning concentrates. Newly developed neutral pH all-in-one or "combination detergent" cleaning concentrates have been shown to be effective in optimizing the efficacy of the passive oxide layer. This will provide a longer life for stainless steel surgery instruments. Cleaning concentrates with a high or low pH have been shown to erode the passive layer. The most common of these cleaning concentrates utilize an alkaline detergent with an acid neutralizer. Virtually all manufacturers of surgical instruments and surgical instrument containers recommend against using these detergents and recommend using a neutral ph detergent

Studies regarding the passive oxide layer of Surgical Instruments
Guidelines on metals and alloys in contact with food; Council of Europe; published 11.10.2000. Systemic nickel: the contribution made by stainless steel cooking  utensils; Contact Dermatitis, Volume 32:2, 1994 of the stainless steel passive layer to prevent corrosion have revealed a reduction in corrosion prevention with the use of cleaning concentrates that are not neutral pH. The use of cleaning concentrates that deliver an acid rinse will release nickel from the stainless steel and decrease the efficacy of  the passive layer. This is most critical on initial reprocessing events of stainless steel surgical instruments. Measurable levels of nickel have been detected. It was also  shown that, as the number of subsequent uses increased, the level of nickel release diminished and reached a steady state (measured in the order of μg/l). These  observations reflect the changes that occur in the passive oxide layer on first immersion of stainless steels in aqueous media. What is a Stainless Steel Surgical Instrument Cleaner? Stainless steel is essentially a low carbon steel which contains chromium at 10% or more by weight. It is this addition of chromium that gives the steel its unique stainless,  corrosion resisting properties. The chromium content of the steel allows the formation of a rough, adherent, invisible, corrosion-resisting chromium oxide film on the steel  surface. If damaged mechanically or chemically, this film is self-healing, providing that oxygen, even in very small amounts, is present. The corrosion resistance and other  useful properties of the steel are enhanced by increased chromium content and the addition of other elements such as molybdenum, nickel and nitrogen. Stainless steel has  a passive film created by the presence of chromium (and often other alloying elements, nickel, molybdenum) that resists this process. When exposed in air, stainless steels  passivate naturally (due to the presence of chromium). But the time required can vary. In order to ensure that the passive layer reforms rapidly after pickling, a passivation  treatment is performed using a solution of nitric acid and water.

Studies demonstrate how properly designed Surgical Instrument Washers Decontaminators, Washer Disinfectors are able to deliver optimal cleaning using a combination of automated mechanical treatments and chemical treatments. The mechanical surgical instrument cleaning treatments and the chemical surgical instrument cleaning treatments include 9 basic cleaning treatments. Surgical instrument cleaning detergents should clean to enhance the passive layer, to avoid surgical instrument pitting surgical instrument corrosion. The optimal decontamination cleaning-reprocessing of surgical instruments will secure the prerequisite for disinfecting surgical instruments and/or sterilizing surgical instruments, deliver surgical instruments that are safe to handle, and reduce reprocessing costs.

Surgical Instrument Washers with Ultrasonic Surgical Instrument Cleaning used in this research study were manufactured by CESCO, Mercersburg PA. The Surgical Instrument Washers with an integrated Ultrasonic Surgical Instrument Cleaner are not currently available from CESCO. European Manufacturers have developed Surgical Instrument Washers with fully automated Ultrasonic Cleaning manufactured within the ISO/DIS 15883-1 Standard. Studies demonstrate the propensity for Surgical Instrument Washers with Ultrasonic Cleaning to deliver optimal cleaning results. The surgical instrument cleaners used in these studies are currently available in the form of the all-in-ONE enzymatic enzyme detergent surgical instrument cleaners. A critical component for optimal cleaning is using the best possible surgical instrument cleaners. Recent European studies have illustrated and concluded that combination enzymatic enzyme detergent surgical instrument cleaners are more effective than conventional surgical instrument cleaners. The research was initiated to deactivate prions deactivating prions within the objective to prevent CJD Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. When cleaning surgical instruments and cleaning endoscopes  the proper sequence of washer treatments includes a series of mechanical and chemical treatments. The mechanical treatments include: cold water pre-wash, ultrasonic cleaning, detergent wash, purified water rinses, and hot air drying. The chemical treatments include combination of enzymatic enzyme cleaners, detergents, surface conditioners and lubricants. The mechanical surgical instrument cleaning treatments and the chemical surgical instrument cleaning treatments include 9 basic cleaning treatments. Surgical instrument cleaning detergents should clean to enhance the passive layer, to avoid surgical instrument pitting surgical instrument corrosion. APIC Study illustrates the results of cleaning surgical instruments using an automated Surgical Instrument Washer Washer Disinfector and an enzyme detergent lubricant cleaner: the evaluation of the Surgical Instrument Washer with an Ultrasonic Surgical Instrument Cleaner solution confirmed that the efficacy of disinfection was 100%. All instruments and utensils tested were sterile at the completion of the process.
