MetriZyme is used to pre-clean critical or semi-critical medical devices prior to terminal sterilization or high level disinfection. It is comprised of dual- protease enzymes. The active ingredients offer optimal cleaning action on a variety of protein soils.
Inclusion of surfactants provides additional cleaning on carbohydrates, lipid soils and protein soils. The protein-dissolving enzymes in MetriZyme allow for fast, simple removal of bodily fluids that often cannot be accomplished manually with soaps and other detergents.
