Matrix® is a breakthrough in validated
cleaning protocols. Matrix® has been demonstrated to remove conventional
biological soils and bacterial biofilms. Cleaning of Medical Devices has been
identified as the critical first step in any effective instrument reprocessing
system. Bacterial biofilms in which both bacteria and other micro-organisms may
be imbedded are more difficult to remove than conventional biological soils
alone. Traditional cleaning solutions, most notably enzymatic detergent
cleaners, have been demonstrated to be ineffective against bacterial biofilm
soiling. Disease causing organisms have been proven to be transferred when
protected within biofilms on improperly cleaned Medical Devices.
Matrix® is specifically designed for use in
Endoscopy, Central Sterilizing Departments and Dental Practices. Whiteley
