Surgical Instrument Cleaning Detergent Enzyme Lubricants cut costs for cleaning surgical instruments cleaner and residue free. Surgical instrument Detergent lubricant enzyme cleaners clean faster. Buy Surgical Instrument Cleaning Detergent Enzyme Lubricants that cut costs. Surgical instrument cleaning enzymes are proteins produced by all living organisms that act as catalysts to speed up chemical reactions that would otherwise occur at a much slower rate. Catalysts delivered with the enzyme cleaners help the cleaning process from a beginning to an end. The enzyme catalysts are not used up in the reaction so they are available to help multiple reactions. Surgical instrument cleaning enzymes fit their target substrates like a lock fits a key. The surgical instrument cleaning enzymes active site is open only to specific target substances with a matching chemical and three dimensional shape. If the substrate doesn't fit, the surgical instrument cleaning enzymes can't enter and no cleaning reaction occurs. This makes the action of surgical instrument cleaning enzymes highly specific for their substrates. For this reason specific enzymes are needed for cleaning bioburden from surgical instruments. The four enzymes necessary for effective cleaning are: protease surgical instrument enzyme cleaners to breakdown proteins including blood, amylase surgical instrument enzyme cleaners to breakdown starch and catalyze the hydrolysis of starch, lipase surgical instrument enzyme cleaner to breakdown fats and high level lipids, and carbohydrase surgical instrument enzyme cleaner to breakdown high level starches. Enzyme detergents that do not offer these four enzymes cannot remove all forms of proteinaceous bioburden and will not be as effective for cleaning surgical instruments. When bioburden has been emulsified, during suction, the bioburden becomes more challenging to remove, particularly lipids and proteins. Highly concentrated protease enzyme cleaners and lipase enzyme cleaners are necessary.
