Enzyme-based Instrument Presoak and Cleaner


Medzyme is the leading non-toxic, enzyme-based pre-soak and cleaner for endoscopes, fibre-optical and surgical instruments. Medzyme is a bacteria-free formula designed to dissolve and remove protein and organic matter such as blood, mucous, feces and albumin. It is not a single or dual enzyme; it is a multi-enzyme formula with a high percentage of actives, allowing it to serve as a pre-soak for manual decontamination of ultrasonic and scope washers. Its neutral pH and low-foam formula ensures it’s safe to use on all medical instruments, including fibre optics, rubber, plastic, stainless steel and any other surface that is not harmed by water.

Add 15 mL per 4.5 L (1/2 oz. per 1 imp. gal.) of water. For heavy use or adherent organic load, use 30 to 60 mL per 4.5 L (1 to 2 oz. per 1 imp. gal.) of water. Pre-soak instruments as required for 1 to 3 minutes. Rinse and follow standard decontamination procedures. If equipment is to be stored, dry thoroughly. Discard the solution after each use.

Medzyme can be used in cold water and temperatures ranging up to 40°C (100°F). Temperatures higher than 46°C (115°F) will harm the product.

Medzyme is non-toxic and is not considered hazardous material and may be safely disposed down the drain. The container is a high-density polyethylene – a plastic that can be recycled.

To complement the efficacy of our Medzyme detergents, we provide precision with our Medzyme dosing system. The Medzyme Pump is an easy-to-use liquid dosing system that delivers precise amounts of detergent into the sink, eliminating the variability of bottle mounted pumps.
