Critical cleaning solutions for medical device sanitation applications

Alconox’s critical cleaning solutions help increase the value and quality of products used in the medical device sector, ranging from tablet presses to stainless-steel mixing tanks.

The company’s portfolio do not leave residues, are biodegradable and free-rinsing, and contain no softeners, brighteners corrosion inhibitors, rinse aids, dyes or fragrances.

The cleaners provide optimal performance using wetting agents that allow cleaning solutions to access hard-to-reach cracks and crevices. Aqueous cleaning provides many benefits to medical device manufacturers, including efficacy, reduced residue potential, and easier cleaning validation.

Aqueous cleaners for manual soak, machine and automated washing

Alconox’s aqueous cleaners are suitable for various cleaning methods such as soak, machine, manual and automated clean-in-place (CIP).

Available liquids and powders range from acidic to basic, and high-emulsifying to low-foaming, ensuring a flexible approach to many applications.

Alconox’s range of biodegradable aqueous cleaners have a low environmental impact and are readily disposable after use, requiring no further treatment. The cleaners also offer a safe alternative to semi-aqueous or solvent-containing products that tend to have safety risks and are not environmentally friendly.

Liquid cleaning solutions for biomechanical and electronic medical devices

Alconox’s aqueous cleaners help preserve the integrity of high-fidelity, research-quality medical devices, allowing sterilisation or preparation for sterile packaging.

Its brands are suitable for critically cleaning a wide range of materials, including silicone rubber, polyurethane, stainless-steel, titanium and plastic.

They are formulated to clean biomechanical and electronic medical devices without leaving performance-reducing residues. In addition, class III medical devices can be cleaned to high standards ready for implanting or dental applications, including medical procedures such as knee, hip and shoulder replacements.

About Alconox

Alconox was founded in 1946 when Louis Zisman and William Lebowitz began manufacturing and distributing detergents comprising a wetting agent that cleaned glassware without leaving a residue.

Over the decades, Alconox has branched out to solve cleaning challenges worldwide, including sanitising biotech, healthcare, pharmaceutical and medical device equipment.
