Cleaning and Disinfection - A Critical Step in Medical Device Reprocessing

About 3M Cleaning & Disinfection Products

  • Cleaning surgical instruments is critical because residual organic material, like blood, pus, tissue and bone, can inactivate disinfectants and allow potentially deadly bacteria to remain on the surfaces. 3M range of Rapid Multi-Enzyme Cleaners, Clean-Trace Surface Cleaning ATP Swabs and Luminometers help you clean instruments effectively as well as monitor cleaning efficacy even as instruments become more complex and difficult to clean.

Q1. Does it clean all human secretions completely?

Enzyme solutions are known to be effective instrument cleaning solutions. Each enzyme has a single/ specific function. Any instrument used on a patient, has a combination of human secretion left on the instrument, e.g. a mixture of blood, tissue, fats, and/or mucus etc. Thus a multi-enzyme cleaning solution with all 4 enzymes provides high performance by digesting all human secretions including proteins, carbohydrates, mucopolysaccharides & lipids.

Q2. Is it cost-saving and efficient?

Having an efficient cleaning solution can help you save significant time, effort and cost. Check the following four things to understand if your solution is cost and time efficient:
• Has lower dilution per liter of water of a cleaning solution
• Takes less time to clean soiled instruments at different bio-burden levels
• Simple cleaning process without significant scrubbing requirement
• Works for manual, ultrasonic and washer dis-infector cleaning

Q3. Does it help protect your instruments and work with all kinds of cleaning equipment?

Instruments can be adversely affected by corrosion, scaling & rusting. To avoid these issues, it is important to consider if the cleaning solution has:
• Neutral pH: Alkaline solutions result in instrument corrosion
• Scale Prevention, Rust Inhibition & Shine Retention Properties

Cleaning Chemicals

  • 3M™ multi-enzyme cleaners are fast and easy cleaning solutions for medical and surgical instruments, these rapid multi-enzyme cleaners have a neutral pH and are highly effective against proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and mucopolysaccharides and also have a long shelf life.

    Featured Product

    The 3M™ Ultra Rapid Multi-Enzyme Cleaner is a proprietary combination of enzyme concentrates for quick and effective cleaning of surgical, medical and dental instruments, including flexible and rigid endoscopes. It has Scale Prevention, Rust Inhibition & Shine Retention Properties and is an all in 1 solution for manual, ultrasonic and automatic washer disinfector cleaning.

Cleaning Verification and Monitoring

  • The 3M™ Clean-Trace™ ATP Cleaning Monitoring System is a rapid cleaning efficacy monitoring tool that measures cleanliness of medical devices, endoscopes, and environmental surfaces. In just 30 seconds, the Clean-Trace System can quantify the cleanliness of a surface or lumen sample using Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) bioluminescence. With the integrated software, you can track your facility’s data, generate reports, identify issues, and focus your process improvement efforts where they’re needed most.

    Featured Product

    • 3M™ Clean-Trace™ NG Luminometer NG3 is a simple, quick and reliable hand held diagnostic tool to verify cleaning effectiveness and capture, store and manage data for later analysis.
    • The compact and easy to use instrument is used with the 3M™ Clean-Trace™ Surface ATP UXL100, 3M™ Clean-Trace™ Water Plus - Total ATP AQT200 and 3M™ Clean-Trace™ Water - Free ATP AQF100 to determine the level of contamination in a sample. The rapid results allow immediate corrective action.

Disinfectant Solutions and Monitors

  • 3M™ Glutaraldehyde disinfectants provide better equipment care and protect medical equipment from bacteria, fungi, viruses, and other microbes by disinfecting and sterilising them. Most high-level disinfectants are required to withstand challenge from organic material like soil without losing its effectiveness. Glutaraldehyde has a long history of use as a HLD and sterilant and its performance and associated risks have been extensively studied.

    Featured Product

    • The 3M™ Glutarex™ is a highly effective solution used for disinfecting medical instruments in hospitals.If your instruments need to be high level disinfected, you must check the concentration of the high level disinfectant in the processor/soaking tray to ensure it is at or above the minimum effective concentration. Glutaraldehyde Monitors provide visual indication when the solution is above 1.5% MEC concentration.

  • Disinfection and Sterilisation: An Overview

    A major risk of all surgical procedures is the introduction of pathogenic microbes leading to infection caused due to contact by a medical device or surgical instrument with a patient’s sterile tissue or mucous membranes. This paper will capsulise other papers on how failure to properly disinfect or sterilise equipment may lead to transmission via contaminated medical and surgical devices and also provide updated information of newer sterilisation (e.g., hydrogen peroxide vapour, ozone) and disinfection (e.g., improved hydrogen peroxide) technologies.

  • Validation and monitoring of the cleaning efficiency of multi-enzyme cleaners

    Improper cleaning leads to surgical site infections, tissue damage and other complications impacting patient safety and reducing instrument life that increases replacement cost. All regulatory bodies recommend verification of the cleaning process, know more about the methods of cleaning surgical instruments and how you can validate the performance of the cleaning process with 3M™ Clean-Trace™ ATP Test Swab checking for the presence of adenosine triphosphate to verify cleaning effectiveness.
