Does your medical detergent use enzymes?

Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs) place a significant burden on healthcare systems around the world. In the US alone, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate the overall annual direct financial costs of HAIs to hospitals at between $28bn and $45bn, and the cost in lives at around 72k per year. Effective cleaning is a critical part of preventing HAIs.

Enzymes are an important part of the medical cleaning process, from presoak to washing. If medical instruments are not cleaned, they can't be properly sterilized. The right enzymes in the right dosage can help eliminate difficult soils and reduce HAI risk.

Are your instruments as clean as they could be?

The average medical detergent only removes 51% of organic soil. Viewed side by side, the evidence is clear. Detergents without enzymes are visibly less effective than detergents with enzymes.
