How does an enzyme surgical instrument cleaner clean a surgical instrument?
Enzyme cleaners are proteins produced by all living organisms that act as catalysts to speed up chemical cleaning that would otherwise occur at a much slower rate or not at all. The enzyme cleaners (the catalysts) are materials that help reactions move from a beginning to an end. Enzyme cleaners are not used up in the cleaning process so they are available to perform multiple cleaning tasks. Enzymes will remain effective unless they are overwhelmed by a larger mass of bioburden. Enzymes fit their targeted bioburden type for cleaning like a lock fits a key. A type of enzyme is capable of breaking down specific types of bioburden with a matching chemical shape. If the type of enzyme type doesn't match the type of bioburden no cleaning occurs.
The common types of surgical instrument bioburden debris are; lipids (fats), proteins (blood, serum albumin, globulins), starches (complex carbohydrates), carbohydrates (complex sugars).
The four types of enzyme surgical instrument cleaners that are necessary to effectively break down bioburden for removal, by surface cleaning detergents, are: Lipase Enzyme Cleaners to break down fat and emulsified fatty acid residue from the glycerol residue, Amylase Enzyme Cleaners to break down starches and to catalyze the hydrolysis of starches, Carbohydrase enzyme surgical instrument cleaners to break down starches to lower level carbohydrates, and Protease Enzyme Cleaners to break down proteins, such as blood and peptidases.
rapidly break down all forms of surgical instrument bioburden facilitating their removal by the surface cleaning detergents incorporated within the product formulation.
