Attack Biofilm with Draco Deep-Cleaning Pads

Draco™ Deep-Cleaning Pads effectively remove adhered contaminants on flexible endoscopes and stainless steel surgical instruments. When biofilm colonies develop, the extreme stickiness of the extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) matrix makes them very difficult to remove. Enzymatic detergents alone are not able to effectively remove biofilms. The Draco deep-cleansing foam layer breaks the bonds that adhere biofilm clusters to surfaces. The Draco microfiber layer then captures and removes these harmful pathogens. The contour foam layer easily wraps around instruments for thorough cleaning.
