neodisher® MediClean forte | Detergent for Reprocessing | BMSS | Products

Detergent for reprocessing thermostable and thermolabile instruments

Liquid concentrate

neodisher® MediClean forte Fields of application:

  • Automated cleaning of thermostable and thermolabile instruments including MIS instruments and micro-instruments, flexible endoscopes, anaesthesia equipment, containers and other medical utensils
  • Also suitable for the manual and automated cleaning of da Vinci-EndoWrist instruments
  • Manual cleaning of thermostable and thermolabile instruments in immersion baths or ultrasonic baths
  • Automated and manual cleaning of personal protective equipment

Performance spectrum:

  • Reliably removes residues of dried and denatured blood
  • Fulfils the current recommendations of the German Robert-Koch-Institute (RKI) for minimising the transmission risk of the new variant of the Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (vCJD) when reprocessing medical devices
  • Supports the removal of biofilms
  • Anodised aluminium must be tested first for suitability
  • Greatly reduces the amount of organic material and prevents the re-deposition of protein residues
  • Removes pathogenic prion proteins of different prion test strains; amongst those the vCJD test strain by > 2 lg steps (1 %, 55 °C, 10 min)2

  • Suitable for instruments and utensils made of stainless steel, instrument steel, optics, conventional plastics and the materials of anaesthesia equipment

Special properties:

  • Excellent material compatibility
  • When used for manual pre-cleaning the cleaner solution does not have to be rinsed off prior to automated reprocessing
  • No hazard label; non-hazardous product
  • First-class cleaning activity due to the singular formula based on alkalinity donors, surfactants and enzymes
  • No neutralising step necessary for automated reprocessing; therefore short program cycles

Application and dosage:

neodisher® MediClean forte can be used in washer disinfectors as well as in dip and ultrasonic baths. The dosing amount depends on the respective field of application and the individual degree of contamination of the instruments to be reprocessed. When reprocessing da Vinci EndoWrist instruments neodisher® MediClean forte can be used in all manual pre-cleaning steps, for ultrasonic pre-treatment and for the automated reprocessing process.

Personal protective equipment1 cleaned in an immersion bath must be completely wetted with the application solution during the entire immersion time. Then rinse thoroughly under running water of at least drinking water quality.

The following parameters are recommended when using neodisher® MediClean forte:

Automated and manual cleaning of instruments:

Automated cleaning of thermostable and thermolabile instruments

Standard dosage

2 – 10 ml/l (0.2 – 1.0 %)*,
e.g. 40 – 60 °C, 10 min5 ml/l (0.5 %)*,
e.g. 55 °C, 10 min
Automated cleaning of flexible endoscopes and endoscopic accessories 5 ml/l (0.5 %),
35 – 55 °C, 5 min
Automated cleaning of da Vinci EndoWrist instruments 8 ml/l (0.8 %),
40 – 55 °C, 10 – 30 min**
Manual cleaning of thermostable and thermolabile instruments in dip and ultrasonic baths 5 – 20 ml/l (0.5 – 2 %)*,
max. 40 °C, 10 – 30 min
Manual cleaning of flexible endoscopes as well as endoscopic accessories in dip and ultrasonic baths 5 – 30 ml/l (0.5 – 3 %)*,
max. 40 °C, 5 – 10 min
Manual cleaning of da Vinci EndoWrist instruments in dip and ultrasonic baths 10 ml/l (1.0 %),
max. 40 °C

Automated and manual cleaning of personal protective equipment

Manual cleaning of breathing apparatuses/respirators and their accessories in immersion baths 10 ml/l – 30 ml/l (1.0 % – 3.0 %)*,
cold water up to max. 40 °C, 15 – 30 min.
Automated cleaning of specific personal protective equipment (clearance in accordance with manufacturer’s information), breathing apparatuses/respirators and their accessories in washerdisinfectors and/or washer extractors (program specifications in accordance with manufacturer’s information) 10 ml/l (1 %), 55°C, 2 min

* the dosing amount depends on the degree of soiling
** depending on the respective recommendation of the washer-disinfector manufacturer

Use suitable dosing devices.

In the cleaning step and in the final rinse the use of deionised water is recommended. The neutralisation step which is obligatory when using classical alkaline detergents is not necessary. When reprocessing ophthalmological
instruments an additional intermediate rinse with water prior to the final rinse is recommended. The working solution for manual cleaning is to be renewed daily and in the case of visible soiling.

Notes on application:

  • For professional use only.
  • Do not mix with other products.
  • Rinse out dosing system including suction hose with water before changing product.
  • Reprocessing should comply with all ordinances pursuant to the Medical Device Directive and should be performed with appropriate validated processes.
  • The neodisher® MediClean forte working solution has to be rinsed off completely (preferably with deionised water).
  • To prevent water stains we recommend using deionised water in the final rinse/ when rinsing.
  • Please observe the medical device manufacturer´s recommendations for use according to the requirements of DIN EN ISO 17664 as well as the recommendations of the PPE manufacturer.
  • The instructions given by the manufacturer of the washer disinfector are to be observed.
