and Optimal Cleaning Temperatures
The optimal temperature for maximum enzymatic enzyme detergent cleaning performance peaks at 137 degrees Fahrenheit (137 degree Fahrenheit = 58.33 degree Celsius).
The cleaning activity of the enzyme detergents at temperatures below and above this point is less but does offer cleaning value. The cleaning activity of the enzyme detergents does not stop at this temperature but is does lessen as the temperature increases.
Surgical Instrument washers, used with an enzyme detergent lubricant surgical instrument cleaner, and the proper treatment cycles, have proven to deliver sterile surgical instruments.
All instruments and utensils tested were sterile at the completion of the washing process.
Common misunderstandings exist pertaining to the application of enzymatic enzyme detergents including the times and temperatures for optimal cleaning outcomes. Although generalities can be misleading for specific applications there parameters for the use of enzymatic enzyme detergents that can render a high probability of excellent cleaning outcomes.
The optimal dosage rate (ounces diluted per carrier solution, usually neutral pH water) is a function of the types of enzymes and the concentration level of enzymes.
The Four Enzyme Cleaners
Lipase Enzyme Cleaners break down fat to cleave fatty acid residue from the glycerol residue in a neutral fat or phospholipid.
Amylase Enzyme Cleaners break down starch to catalyze the hydrolysis of starch to sugar to produce carbohydrate derivatives.
Carbohydrase Enzyme Cleaners break down starch to a lower level) catalyzes hydrolysis of higher carbohydrates to lower forms.
Protease Enzyme Cleaners break down blood including the proteinases and peptidases, to catalyze the hydrolytic breakdown of proteins.
Surgical Instrument Cleaner Usage
The use of Enzyme Detergent Cleaners of various compositions and concentrations becoming common. Over half of all detergent cleaners available contain enzymes. The enzymatic enzyme detergent cleaner industry is the largest single market for enzymes, at rate of 25 - 30% of total sales. Details of which enzymes are used within enzymatic enzyme detergent cleaners and the ways in which they are best used, are rarely been published.
Enzyme Surgical Instrument
Understandings exist pertaining to the application of enzymatic enzyme detergents including the times and temperatures for optimal cleaning outcomes. Although generalities can be misleading for specific applications, there parameters for the use of enzymatic detergents that, if incorporated into the reprocessing protocol, can render the highest quality cleaning outcomes. As and example, an APIC Study demonstrated that surgical Instrument washers, used with an enzyme detergent lubricant surgical instrument cleaner, and the proper treatment cycles, have proven to deliver sterile surgical instruments.
