cleaners remove all forms of bioburden.
surgical instrument cleaners assure you that your surgical instruments will be lubricated with every reprocessing cycle.
ONEcleaner surgical instrument lubricating cleaners deliver a water soluble lubricant, while cleaning devices residue free with lower cleaning costs.
The ONEcleaner surgical instrument lubricant cleaners are water soluble, neutral pH, and biodegradable.
AORN Recommendations for lubricating surgical instruments state that professionals responsible for surgical instruments often overlook the significance of selecting the appropriate lubricant for processing surgical instruments. A surgical instrument lubricant is a valuable tool and an important variable in the instrument care process.

When carefully selected, lubricants can do much more than reduce friction and wear; they can lengthen the useful life of an instrument. The use of an inappropriate lubricant can lead to inadequate sterilization of surgical instruments and can ultimately affect surgical outcomes.
Reusable surgical instruments constitute a significant investment for any healthcare facility, maintaining their full useful life is a cost-driven priority. When reprocessing instruments and preparing them for sterilization, it is critical to use lubricants specifically formulated and labeled for surgical instruments. This can help assure that the lubricants are formulated to allow sterilants to contact instrument surfaces, and will give confidence that they are compatible with the method of sterilization being used. Water soluble lubricants offer a number of advantages over oil-based lubricants and may prove to be a superior and more effective product for the sterile processing department. It is also critical to thoroughly clean each device to remove any soils, biofilm, vegetative and spore forms of organisms, oils, and any other residues that can impair sterilization. Applying heat to these residues can affix them more tightly to the surfaces and make the instruments even harder to sterilize. Lubricants are a cost-effective way of maintaining and getting the best performance from medical instruments.
The value of surgical instrument lubrication: the Association of perioperative Registered Nurses (AORN) recommends that all decontaminated equipment with moving parts be bathed in a preserved water-soluble lubricant after each mechanical processing, unless the manufacturer advises otherwise. ONEcleaner lubricating surgical instrument cleaners assure you that your surgical instruments will be lubricated with every cleaning reprocessing cycle.
AORN Recommended Practices state that: Surgical instruments should be checked for function after cleaning. Those with moving parts may require lubrication according to manufacturers' instructions. Water soluble lubricants should be applied to those instruments that require lubrication. Instruments should be cleaned before the lubricant is applied. Lubricants decrease friction between working surfaces. Unless otherwise specified, lubricants should be water soluble to allow steam penetration during sterilization; oil-based products cannot be penetrated.
Surgical instruments should be lubricated with a neutral pH water soluble lubricant after every use and during every cleaning treatment.
