Daily Monitor for MANUAL Enzymatic Cleaning Process
Clean Check Complete ® Manual monitor for Manual Enzymatic Cleaning Process (MEC) determines the presence of active enzymes in manual bath solutions using enzymatic detergents.
Enzymatic detergents greatly enhance the cleaning of medical instruments however the optimal activity of enzymes is dependent on the correct detergent concentration (dilution), bath temperature and exposure time.1 Clean Check Complete ® Manual test strips are sensitive to all these parameters. Also, enzymes gradually degrade during use (soil components are substrates for the enzymes) thus the amount of soil on the device during the enzyme treatment will affect the efficacy of cleaning.
“Disinfection and sterilization cannot be assured unless the cleaning process was effective; seek out whatever means are available and practical to verify the cleaning function. A quality system calls for monitoring and documenting both manual and automatic decontamination processing parameters.” 2
Use the Clean Check Complete ® Manual monitor wherever manual soaking or hand washing with enzymatic detergents is carried out such as in hospital CS/SPDs, medical or dental offices, decontamination areas, etc.
