Novozymes Remify Everis 100 L enzyme solution for surgical device cleaning

Friday, 03 July, 2020 | Supplied by: Novozymes Australia Pty Ltd

Preventing healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) has become more important than ever due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and it is well recognised by the industry that inadequately cleaned surgical equipment is a key source of HAIs. With this in mind, Novozymes has announced its Remify Everis 100 L enzyme solution for cleaning surgical instruments and devices.

The product is a phosphodiesterase (PDE) — a nuclease — that speeds up reactions and can specifically target the organic matter commonly found in medical-type soils. According to Novozymes, it has never been possible to specifically target free DNA soils with detergent ingredients before.

The company’s results show that detergents, optimised by using Remify Everis 100 L, provide better cleaning performance at the right dosages, removing stuck-on soils quicker and with less effort. Under visual analysis, the optimised enzymatic detergent was said to outperform the non-enzymatic and standard detergents, leaving no visual residue in the blades tested. Fluorescent analysis confirmed this outcome.

Enzymes are gentle on delicate medical instruments and devices, and are also readily biodegradable. Other benefits are said to include improved rewash rates and decreased operational costs. Enzyme function can be optimised to ensure proper cleaning by monitoring key factors such as temperature, dose and time.
