The Importance of
The secondary purpose of surgical instrument cleaners 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.
When strength and hardness are important factors for instrument function. Manufacturers of surgery instruments and surgical instrument containers recommend the use of neutral pH surgical instrument cleaners. Neutral pH all-in-ONEcleaner detergent surgical instrument lubricating cleaners are effective in optimizing the efficacy of the passive oxide layer. This will provide a longer life for stainless steel surgery instruments. Surgical instrument cleaners with a high or low pH have been shown to erode the passive layer.
Effective surgical instrument cleaning is the prerequisite for sterilizing surgical instruments. Disinfecting surgical Instruments and sterilizing surgical instruments can only be effective if the cleaning, whether done it's manually or automatically by using a surgical instrument washer or washer disinfector is adequate. Cleaning surgical instruments and the proper use of surgical instrument cleaners are the prerequisites for sterilizing surgical instruments.
Enzyme cleaning concentrates function more effectively at temperatures above room temperature. The optimal range begins as > 22C - 72 F with performance reaching it's peak at 58.3 C - 137 F. This is often referred to as the optimal temperature for the performance or activity of enzymatic action. The activity of enzymes does not stop at higher temperatures but the level of performance does begin to decrease.
The all-in-ONEcleaner surgical instrument cleaning detergents maintain the hydration of bioburden, prevent corrosion, clean the surface, and condition the surface of instruments and scopes. This can significantly reduce manual cleaning and facilitate cleaning the surface of surgical instruments, scopes, and lumens of cannulated instruments. When used properly, all-in-one enzyme detergent surgical instrument cleaners will render excellent outcomes and facilitate cleaning. Neutral pH 7 surgical instrument cleaning solutions are recommended by all surgical instrument and container manufacturers. The all-in-one enzyme surgical instrument cleaners delvers water softeners that treat the source water to counter the corrosive effects of source hard water that contains high mineral levels, and a free rinsing ingredient breaks the surface tension of the final rinse for spotless and residue free surgical instruments. The all-in-ONEcleaner enzyme surgical instrument cleaning detergent, with surface conditioning lubricants, delivers all of the ingredients necessary for effectively cleaning and maintaining surgical instrument stainless steel.
