How long should surgical instruments soak in a cleaning solution?
Recommended procedures for manually cleaning surgical instruments are to first soak the surgical instruments in lukewarm water with a surgical instrument cleaning solution for at least 10 minutes, preferably until all soil on the instrument is softened, and properly hydrated. Prescribing a time for soaking surgical instruments is not possible without visually observing the condition of the medical devices, such as the volume of debris, stains, mineral encrustations, level of hydration, and content of bioburden (i.e. fats, blood, tissue). Prescribing soaking times for surgical instruments without a visual observation can lead to inadequate hydration and the breakdown of debris, rendering inadequate decontamination when cleaning surgical instruments prior to sterilization.

That is the ONE cleaner
The ONEcleaner delivers four medical-grade enzyme cleaning agents that rapidly remove all forms of surgical bioburden. The highly concentrated level of enzymes in this formulation attack proteins that make up a large portion of common soil (e.g., blood, pus).
As with all chemicals, medical instrument enzymatic cleaning solutions must be rinsed from the equipment or adverse reactions could result. Medical instrument enzymatic cleaning solutions should be used under manufacturer’s instructions, which include proper dilution of the medical enzymatic detergent solution and contact time with the medical devices for the time specified on the label.
Manufacturers of surgical instruments recommend that instrument cleaning procedures use neutral pH medical instrument enzymes, detergent, and lubricating cleaning solutions. Neutral pH medical instrument enzymes, detergents, and lubricating cleaning solutions are effective in strengthening the passive oxide layer of protection against surgical instrument corrosion, staining, and pitting. The highly concentrated ONE cleaner delivers an average of 400% more cleaning power. One gallon can deliver 512 gallons (1938 liters) of cleaning power. The dilution rate is .25 to .5 ounces per gallon diluent (1.9 ml liters to 3.8 ml per liter) depending on the level of bioburden, encrustation, and stains. These recommended dilution rates for the enzymatic medical detergent cleaning solution deliver highly concentrated ingredients.
The all-in-ONE medical instrument cleaning solutions reduce the cost of enzymes, detergents, stain removers, and lubricants while cutting freight and handling by an average of 400%. The ONEcleaner surgical instrument cleaning detergent solutions combine the detergent and enzyme treatment cycles for consistent high-quality cleaning outcomes.
Medical instrument cleaning detergent enzymes can result in asthma or other allergic effects in users. Prewash soaking medical instrument enzymatic cleaners should not be sprayed and should be used as a form. as delivered by the easy FOAM-it to avoid the spray aerosols. The easy-FOAM-it soaking enzymatic cleaner lays down a long-lasting blanket, of enzyme detergent cleaning power to hydrate, rapidly break down, and remove all forms of surgical debris. When water is applied, the foam dissipates to provide a lightly colored eye surgical instrument cleaning solution. The easy-FOAM-it prewash soaking enzymatic cleaners deliver a highly concentrated, powerful, yet non-irritating, enzyme detergent cleaning formula combined with a water-soluble surgical instrument lubricant. The neutral pH ONEcleaner medical enzymatic detergent solutions are compatible with all the metals and materials used in medical instruments and are the best choice for cleaning delicate medical instruments, especially flexible endoscopes. Alkaline-based medical cleaning solutions used for processing can be corrosive to medical surgical instruments. The concentrated detergent with medical instrument enzyme cleaners, the ONEcleaner, is designed for medical instrument cleaning procedures to deliver medical enzymes (protease, amylase, lipase, and carbohydrase) to break down all forms of surgical bioburden, including blood, carbohydrates, protein, fats, starches, oils, uric acid, and nitrogenous compounds. Medical instrument cleaning enzymes, working with surface cleaning detergents, thoroughly clean medical instruments, to remove all forms of debris, stains, and mineral encrustations.
