Dirty surgical instruments with remnants of hidden debris, built-up proteins and spots of rust can corrupt you research results, invalidating all your work. Enzol is a fast, effective protealytic detergent designed for cleaning surgical instruments. After a good cleaning, you may proceed to disinfection and sterilization according to your GLP (good laboratory practice). Cleaning instruments is always the first step towards sterilization. A detergent like Enzol assists in the removal of the debris that could also interfere with further disinfection/sterilization. 

WPI also offers chemical agents for High Level Disinfection (HLD), which kills most microbes and some bacterial spores. Cidex Plus® (3.4% glutaraldehyde) can be used as a high level disinfectant. The CDC recommends a 90 minute soak at 25°C. While dry heat and autoclaving is the preferred method of sterilizing surgical instruments, some chemical sterilants may be used. Cidex Plus® can be used as a HLD disinfectants or as a sterilant, depending on the exposure period. Surgical Instruments soaked in Cidex Plus® for 10 hours at 25°C are sterile.

Why Use ENZOL to Clean Surgical Instruments?

Cleaning Solution Icons

enzolENZOL® Detergent is a mild pH enzyme-based, presoak-plus-cleaner for removing tough, dried-on or hard-to-reach organic matter from instruments before they are disinfected in CIDEX® Solution. The proteolytic enzymes break down organic matter in one easy step. Enzol® is fast--results begin in one minute. Preteolytic enzymes penetrate and break down protein, reducing the need for mechanical cleaning.

  • Effective at room temperature (no need for hot water)
  • Safe for instruments, including delicate endoscopes
  • Mild pH reduces likelihood of corrosion
  • Easy to rinse, so it won't clog scopes or leave a residue on instruments
  • Low foaming, making it effective for use in automated equipment

 

Why Use CIDEX for Sterilizing Surgical Instruments?

cidexCIDEX OPA® Solution, a 0.55% ortho-phthalaldehyde solution, is glutaraldehyde-free and effective at room temperature (68°F). Test strips are available to test the MEC of the solutions. 

  • Non-corrosive for instruments
  • No activating or mixing need
  • Glutaraldehyde-free (0.55% ortho-phthalaldehyde) high-level disinfecting solution
  • Rapid 5-minute soak time at 25°C in an automated endoscope re processor. Twelve-minute soak time 20°C for manual reprocessing
