deconex® TWIN BASIC / TWIN ZYME is a highly effective, neutral enyzmatic 2-component cleaning system, which is extremely gentle on materials, and which is used for uncompromising cleaning of all medical instruments and utensils including MiS and dental instruments, anesthetic and respiratory equipment, ward materials made of rubber, latex or plastics, rigid and flexible endoscopes in washer-disinfectors (WD and E-WD).
deconex® TWIN BASIC / TWIN ZYME represents a unique dual cleaning concept consisting of a neutral cleaning component (deconex® TWIN BASIC) and a multi-enzymatic cleaning component (deconex® TWIN ZYME), which makes it possible to use particularly effective ingredients, which would interfere with each other if combined in a single product and reduce effectiveness.
In the 2-component cleaning system important components, such as enzymes and hardness bonding complexing agents, remain separated until the moment when they are diluted and introduced into the washer-disinfector. This increases the stability of the various components and also enables them to work in synergy.
As a result the 2-component cleaning system, deconex® TWIN BASIC / TWIN ZYME, is superior to every traditional neutral, neutral-enzymatic or mild alkaline 1-component detergents both in terms of material compatibility and cleaning performance.
It is highly efficient at removing blood, residual tissue, proteins, fats, carbohydrates, mucous, biofilm, stool and other contaminants from medical instruments made from metal, plastic and glass, including various complex instruments, and rigid and flexible endoscopes and dental instruments. deconex® TWIN BASIC / TWIN ZYME is compatible with hard water.
When using tap water there is a pH value of 7 in the washing solution.
deconex® TWIN BASIC / TWIN ZYME contains no EDTA or NTA and it is also free of potentially allergenic additives such as scent and colorants. deconex® TWIN BASIC / TWIN ZYME is low-foaming and offers good rinsability.
