Use of Enzymes in Hospital Cleaning


Novozymes enzymes for medical detergents are effective and powerful cleaning aids. During the cleaning process, enzymes or biomolecules speed up reactions, specifically targeting the organic matter commonly found in medical waste, decontamination medical equipment and surgical instruments. As a gentler cleaner, they are less harsh on delicate medical instruments and devices, and biodegrade easily.

Using the correct amount, temperature and material is important. Medical detergents need the proper enzyme dosage in order to be effective at the speed required in medical cleaning. Enzymes also perform best within specific temperature and pH ranges, so choosing the right enzyme is crucial for hospitals, medical centers and health care facilities if they are to reap all the benefits of optimal cleaning detergents. When selecting a detergent for your medical cleaning application, make sure to check the enzyme dosage of the product you wish to use. Univar Solutions and Novozymes technical specialists can provide guidance on the most effective products and enzyme solutions for your detergent needs.

Breakthrough Biosolutions for Medical Cleaning


Deep Cleaning of Medical Instruments


A Everis® Next é uma enzima exclusiva e patenteada pela Novozymes. Trata-se de uma nuclease que remove sujeiras com DNA livre. A aplicação desta nuclease é um avanço no espaço da bioinovação, visando combater especificamente esses contaminantes através de ingredientes detergentes. Esta tecnologia representa uma nova classe de enzimas para detergentes que podem ser usados para ajudar a prevenir infecções hospitalares.


Did you know:

Protease and lipase are the two enzymes most commonly used for cleaning medical devices today. Proteases remove stains rich in proteins, such as blood, while lipases attack greasy stains like adipose tissue (body fat). Combining multiple enzymes, including amylases and cellulases, with a properly formulated detergent helps to naturally remove human soils and waste in health care environments.
