enzymes and cleaning temperatures for superior cleaning performance

The temperatures for optimal enzymatic cleaning performance peaks at 137 degrees 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 enzymes and detergents do not stop at this peak temperature but is does lessen as the temperature increases and decreases.

enzymes with detergents for cleaning eye surgical instruments

Surgical instrument detergent enzyme cleaners that deliver enzymes working with detergents, effectively break down and remove all forms of surgical bioburden, stains, and mineral encrustations from intraocular eye  surgical instruments.

A key factor affecting the efficacy of any enzyme detergent is the concentration level of the enzymatic detergent as it is packaged prior to dilution. The enzyme detergent must deliver each of the four enzymes that are necessary for removing all forms of surgical bioburden.

enzymes alone do not clean
enzymes break down bioburden

It is commonly stated that enzymes “clean”. Enzymes alone do not “clean”. The primary function of enzymes is to break down soil, usually proteinaceous bioburden. For a cleaning product to “clean”, surfactant detergents are necessary that will remove the soil from the surface. A combination of enzymes working with detergents is necessary for optimal “cleaning” performance. Enzyme and detergent combination products are referred to as “Enzyme Detergents” or "all-in-ONEcleaner enzyme detergents".

eye surgical instrument cleaners

Enzyme detergents must be “free rinsing” to render a residue free surface.  Enzymatic detergents should be designed to condition the source water to counter the potential pitting and staining effects of hard water. The primary goal of an enzymatic detergent is to remove soil which includes proteins, starches and lipids. To accomplish this, the enzyme detergents must contain four types of enzymes with surface cleaning detergents.

enzymatic intraocular eye surgical instrument cleaners

Lipase Enzymes break down fats to cleave fatty acid residue from the glycerol residue in a neutral fat or a phospholipid.
Amylase Enzymes break down starches to catalyze the hydrolysis of starch to sugar to produce carbohydrate derivatives.
Carbohydrase Enzymes break down starches to a lower level) to catalyze the hydrolysis of higher carbohydrates to lower forms.
Protease Enzymes break down proteins, such as blood, including proteinases and peptidases, to catalyze the hydrolytic break down of proteins.
