How Does It Work?
This extremely effective multi-enzymatic detergent features a unique, patented green formulation. One of very few FDA approved multi-tiered enzymatic detergents in the U.S., EcoZyme contains a variety of safe enzymes and surfactants designed to break down organic and inorganic biological residue.
Another advantage? The EcoZyme feed rate is half of most competitive products on the market and has a shelf life of two years. So, not only are you quickly cleaning instruments with reduced effort but you are cutting your environmental impact. Feeding a lower dose, not only saves costs, but it also reduces work for you staff. Less time changing out detergent bottles, along with a lower amount of plastic heading to the landfills. The stability of the enzymes allows your staff to utilize their sink longer with the same effectiveness. Longer sink turns, cuts down on work, and leads to cost savings.
Where (And For What) are These Detergents Used
Powerful EcoZyme Ultra is used throughout North America for safely cleaning surgical instruments in hospital, dental, plastic, veterinary and other surgery settings. This ultra-effective detergent works in manual cleaning and low impingement ultrasonics. Meanwhile, EcoZyme Auto is indicated for use in high impingement ultrasonic, automatic washers and cart washer.
Use EcoZyme Spray, which you can spray directly on soiled instruments and scopes prior to transport to decontamination areas, to further cut time and effort spent cleaning and turning that set for its next use.
