Deep-Cleaning Pads

Healthcare facilities are finding it difficult to completely clean biofilm from endoscopes and other surgical instruments. As 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 these colonies. The source of many hospital-acquired infections has been traced to instruments that were not fully cleaned and disinfected. The good news is that Draco engineered products remove more biofilm and adhered contaminants from flexible endoscopes and surgical instruments than traditional cleaning pads.

Detach, capture and remove biofilm with Draco Technology.

Technologically advanced microfiber and cleansing foam enable the Draco Pad to remove biofilm by first detaching biofilm with the deep-cleansing foam layer, and then capturing it and removing it with the Draco Pad's split microfiber layer.

COMPARATIVE TEST STUDY
Performed at the Center for Biofilm Engineering, Montana State University

CONTROL URETHANE SPONGE DRACO PAD
MRSA biofilm was cultured on stainless steel lab test coupons. Each cleaning pad was used in an identical test protocol using the same formulation of detergent. WIPED TWICE WIPED TWICE
1x - Deep-Cleansing Foam Side
1x - Microfiber Side

TEST RESULTS | SUMMARY OF LOG REDUCTIONS
The Draco Pad removed biofilm much more effectively than the urethane sponge.
