Protein / lipid, strong degrading enzyme cleaning agent
TECANOSIS

A cleaning agent containing a special enzyme that strongly decomposes proteins and lipids.

The life of the enzyme is very short, but by blending an enzyme with a long life and high decomposition performance, a cleaning agent that can be stored for a long time and used for a long time was born. A reliable cleaning agent with a proven track record in the medical field.

Since it can safely decompose biofilms in living organisms, it is expected to be the decisive factor in controlling infectious diseases.

Importance of cleaning (primary cleaning) before disinfection and sterilization

* Primary cleaning = In order to effectively disinfect and sterilize reusable instruments after use, remove organic substances such as proteins derived from living organisms in advance.

About the risk of infection in the dental clinic

1. The ratio of open treatment is high, and there are many opportunities for contact with blood and saliva.

2. Since most of them are outpatients, it is difficult to pre-examine infectious diseases.

3. It is difficult to take systematic infection control measures like general hospitals.

Dentistry is said to have a high risk of infection, because "most of the examinees are outpatients who have difficulty in pre-examination for infections.

In addition to "being a medical examination", "there are many open procedures".

There is a possibility that blood-derived pathogenic microorganisms such as HBV and HCV are mixed in the reused equipment after use. If such proteins are attached to the object, the following events will prevent disinfection and sterilization.

(1) The number of microorganisms (initial number of bacteria) attached to the reused equipment after use is large.

(2) The protein layer inhibits disinfection and sterilization.

③ Protein diminishes the effectiveness of chlorine-based disinfectants and electrolyzed water, making disinfection incomplete.

④ In high-level disinfection such as glutaral preparations, proteins are denatured and disinfection is incomplete.

⑤ By high-pressure steam sterilization, proteins adhere to the surface of metal reusable instruments (burnt stains), making sterilization incomplete.

Therefore, the quality of primary cleaning is the key to controlling infectious diseases for reused equipment .

Primary cleaning method

In a dental clinic, the staff in the back yard of the clinical site is generally responsible for a series of tasks such as "primary cleaning", "disinfection / sterilization", and "storage".

Mechanism of action of enzyme-based cleaning agents

Biogenic high molecular weight proteins attached to instruments after use are "hydrophobic".

It makes it difficult to remove proteins from the instrument after use.

The proteolytic enzyme cuts the arms of the high molecular weight protein chain and breaks it down into hydrophilic low molecular weight proteins, enabling removal by gentle running water that does not cause water splashing.

Effect of enzyme-based cleaning agent

1. 1. The risk of infection is reduced because workers are less likely to touch the object to be disinfected.

2. Improves certainty of disinfection and sterilization.

3. 3. It is possible to switch to disinfectants that have less load on the human body.

Four. Even with the same disinfectant, the disinfectant action time can be shortened.

Five. There is no adhesion of organic substances as impurities after disinfection and sterilization.

Harmful effects such as the blades not being cut and the scissors becoming difficult to move are reduced.

Difficulties and solutions to enzyme-based cleaning agents

Currently, the general usage of proteolytic enzyme-based cleaning agents distributed in the medical and dental fields is the "immersion method".

However, it is thought that microbial contamination is concentrated by repeated use in the enzyme tank, which has no bactericidal action.

The ideal way to solve this problem is to replace the preparation solution for each wash, but this is unrealistic in terms of cost and is not preferable in terms of environmental impact.

Therefore, the most suitable method is the foam cleaning method .

Foam-filled cleaning method

<Cleaning equipment by foam cleaning method>

Put the used equipment in the basket and wrap the equipment with the foam of "Tekanose 90".

After the bubbles disappear, wash with water and sterilize as usual.

<Cleaning of dedicated storage case by embedding cleaning method>

Put a special storage case after use in a basket or sink, wrap it in Tecanose 90 foam,

After the bubbles disappear, wash with water and sterilize as usual.

<Cleaning of impression body by foam-filled cleaning method>

It is difficult to remove organic substances such as impressions by washing with water, and water splashes by washing with running water may spread pollution to the surrounding environment. If blood etc. adheres significantly, remove it with a weak shower.

The impression body is washed by the foam-filled washing method, and after washing with water, a disinfectant for the impression body is used.

* Application of the embedding cleaning method for partial contamination of uniforms *

If the adhesion of blood etc. is visible, perform embedding cleaning.

After the foam disappears, put on gloves and wash your hands partially.

◎ Ultrasonic cleaning combined method
◎ Immersion cleaning method
