MetriZyme is used to pre-clean critical or semi-critical medical devices prior to terminal sterilization or high level disinfection. It is comprised of dual- protease enzymes. The active ingredients offer optimal cleaning action on a variety of protein soils. Inclusion of surfactants provides additional cleaning on carbohydrates, lipid soils and protein soils. The protein-dissolving enzymes in MetriZyme allow for fast, simple removal of bodily fluids that often cannot be accomplished manually with soaps and other detergents.
MetriZyme Instrument Pre-Cleaner
According to the FDA, adequate reprocessing of reusable medical devices is vital to protecting patient safety. This goes for semi-critical as well as critical medical device reprocessing. Proper medical device reprocessing is essential to any facility’s infection prevention program. MetriZyme as a stand-alone solution or maximize results by integrating other instrument reprocessing systems to prolong the life of your instruments and equipment. No sterilization system can reliably penetrate the bioburden on soiled surgical instruments. This is why the pre-cleaning step is so critical. A reliable pre-cleaner that breaks down protein-rich bodily fluids and adheres to AAMI Guidelines is essential for instrument reprocessing. Automatic medical device reprocessing provides powerful cleaning, which starts in the operating room to prevent debris for drying on instruments. The product supports most washing systems, and is designed to work in tandem with other products to improve effectiveness, make medical device reprocessing simplified and effective.
