Eco Ez Cleanse™ - Detergent effectiveness
Eco EZ Cleanse™ is powered by an effective detergent, which is a new, innovative, complex blend containing the latest surfactant structures, and is a fully non-toxic, biodegradable detergent. The formulation does not contain any hazardous aldehydes or chlorine generating components. This new formulation is highly effective as a cleaner against bacteria, fungi and viruses. It is unique in that it does not simply remove bioburden from the scope, it actually helps stop biofilm from actually forming.
The unique blend of surfactants in the detergent provides an extremely low surface tension and starts to break down gross debris immediately upon contact, preventing the formation of biofilm within the endoscope channels. This is important as it is critical that prion proteins do not stick to the scope as these cannot be inactivated by any known disinfectant nor destroyed by sterilisation processes.
By preventing biofilm from forming, then there is a much greater chance that prion proteins (such as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease) will not stick to the scope. Prions cannot be killed by any disinfectant nor sterilization process, so the only way to prevent cross-contamination between scopes, is by actually stopping biofilm from forming.
It is for this reason that international guidelines recommend that endoscopes are flushed and wiped immediately with detergent as soon as the procedure is completed
