Break apart from the pack with enzymes

In the ever-evolving price pressures healthcare facilities face, medical detergents risk being commoditized. Purchasing decisions may be made simply based on price. With so many smaller companies entering the marketplace, how can your brand avoid commoditization and stand out from the competition? Better yet, how can your brand hold price stability and avoid the “race to the bottom”?  The answer is innovation with the latest in enzyme technology.

How to differentiate your medical detergent

How to differentiate your medical detergent

Medical detergents have remained relatively unchanged over the years with concentration and dosages being the key differences. Healthcare professionals have a need for clean instruments and devices but are often far from the decision makers in the purchasing departments. 

Enzymes are one of the main components in medical detergents today.  They actively work in synergy with other detergent components to remove organic soils such as proteins, fatty soils residue and carbohydrates. The addition of enzymes provides for a more efficient cleaning process compared to traditional non-enzymatic medical detergents. Enzymes are gentle on devices and have not been shown to cause any damage to medical instruments.

Innovation in this space has taken us from simply trying to develop a better protease to truly understanding the organic soils composition and solutioning targeting them with a broad-spectrum multi-enzyme approach. These new innovations target previously untargeted soil components such as extracellular DNA that can act as a glue for other residues and a carbohydrate that can act as a shell providing protection of the underlying soil from removal.
