Belimed Launches Multi-enzyme Detergent

Belimed Inc., part of the Belimed Group, has expanded its portfolio of multi-enzyme detergents with the addition of the new Belimed Protect Concentrate PLUS. With the addition of Concentrate PLUS, Belimed continues its commitment to sterile processing environments. This multi-enzyme detergent was designed and developed by Belimed to optimize the cleaning outcomes delivered by Belimed’s washers and disinfectors.

“Adding the Concentrate PLUS to our cleaning solutions portfolio provides an additional choice for customers to improve CSSD efficiency and lower operational costs,” Belimed’s Susan Harley said.

Concentrate PLUS reduces dosing levels which will minimize staff time on non-value added activities like product changeovers and inventory management. In addition, it provides a lower risk of staff injury related to better ergonomics associated with smaller size containers. Efficiency results from less detergent and fewer product changeovers while processing the same number of loads in the washer/disinfector. Variability in water quality sometimes creates challenges like scaling, increased dosing levels and diminished cleaning performance for CSSDs. The Concentrate PLUS formulation performs consistently at all water hardness levels, minimizing concerns related to water quality. The Concentrate PLUS formulation, contains the same three enzymes (subtilisin-free protease, lipase and amylase) found in the Belimed Protect portfolio.

“Our formulation is focused on patient and staff safety, due to better cleaning efficiency and the elimination of substances such as subtilisin enzymes, fragrances and dyes where they are not needed,” said Harley.
