Topics include: Cleaning Surgical Instruments Prior to Sterilizing using Surgical Instrument Detergents, Surgical Instrument Cleaning Products, and using enzymatic Surgical Instrument Cleaners prior to Sterilization.
The ONEcleaners are designed to perform for the times and temperatures of the cleaning surgical instruments, scopes, and utensils that are residue free for: pre-wash soaking, manual cleaning, ultrasonic cleaning, scope washers, surgical instrument washers, and washer disinfectors.
As illustrated within a paper presented at APIC (Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology International) the proper cleaning of surgical instruments is capable of rendering surgical instruments that were sterile at the completion of the process. Although sterility is not the goal of decontamination, it certainly illustrates the value of performing the cleaning process within specific guidelines. The ONEcleaner Enzyme Detergent Lubricating Cleaner meets all of performance requirements for all of the treatments and all of the applications. Surgical Instrument Sterilization efficacy requires proper surgical instrument cleaning prior to Sterilizing. Surgical Instrument Detergent Enzymes alone do not clean.
