Enzymatic Detergent

The Hidden Dangers of Instrument Cleaning

Historically, Sterile Processing Managers and Departments have felt like they had to choose between aggressive detergents to clean their instrumentation and keeping their technicians safe and healthy.

Of course, protecting patients with properly cleaned and sterilized instruments is top priority, and until now, MDRDs have often been limited to detergents that contain harsh chemicals which may contain toxic chemicals like phosphoric acid, potassium, or sodium hydroxide.

In this short video, we review some of the impacts of these harsh chemicals to long term health and their corrosive and toxic effects on the environment. We demonstrate how our detergent can work quickly to remove bioburden without excessive brushing or soaking of instrumentation while being safe for the technician.
