OSE_1307_part1_Layout 1 7/8/13 11:13 AM Page 4 Biofilm, an antimicrobial-resistant organism, can develop on surgical instruments and scopes as a result of constant exposure to wet and dry phases during usage and reprocessing. Residual biofilm left on an instrument or scope after cleaning is impervious to high level disinfectants and can lead to infection of patients. Once biofilm is formed, getting rid of it is almost impossible. Biofilm anchors itself to a surface creating a protective environment for microorganisms to grow. RUHOF'S BIO-CLEAN TECHNOLOGY is a unique multi-tiered enzymatic detergent designed to target the insoluble extracellular polymeric layer that encases the bacteria in biofilm. Dissolving this polysaccharide layer exposes the bacteria allowing for the complete elimination of all bioburden and biofilm on semi-critical and critical medical devices by high level disinfectants or liquid chemical sterilants. • The only enzymatic detergent on the market clinically tested to pass ISO 15883 Annex F*. • Solubilizes polysaccharides during the cleaning process allowing for high level disinfectants to kill and remove biofilm. ENDOZIME® BIOCLEAN multi-tiered enzymatic detergent designed to target and dissolve polysaccharides on medical devices allowing for the complete removal of all bioburden and biofilm by high level disinfectants or liquid chemical sterilants. PREPZYME® with Bio-Clean Technology, pre-cleans inanimate surfaces where biofilm can hide, thrive, and grow. Prevents adhesion of bioburden to surgical instruments and scopes. ENDOZIME® SPONGE with Bio-Clean Technology, pre-cleans scope surface enabling high level disinfectant to kill and remove biofilm. ENDOZIME® SLR PHASE ONE Endoscopy Bedside Care Kit and new ScopeValet™ ECO-BEDSIDE KIT, both with Bio-Clean Technology, removes synthetic lipids while pre-cleaning scope surface and internal channels enabling high level disinfectant to kill and remove biofilm. *ISO/TS 15883-5: 2006 - Washer-disinfectors - Part 5: Test soils and methods for demonstrating cleaning efficacy - Annex F (normative) Test soil and method for flexible endoscopes.
