A powerful acidic detergent cleaner that is designed for manual and ultrasonic soaking/cleaning of medical devices such as surgical, ward and dental instruments manufactured from Corrosion Resistant Steel (CRS), but may also be used in cleaning/washing machines.
Virudet 12 find particular use in overcoming process inadequacies that may arise from poor water quality, insufficient cleaning, usage of unsuitable cleaning products and disinfectants, processing errors or poor vapour quality in the sterilizer.
Where surface changes such as described above appear on instrument surfaces, the whole process must be checked. The instruments concerned should be treated with Virudet 12, either in an ultrasonic or in a soaking bath.
Brand-new instruments should go through an initial reprocessing cycle, before they are used for the first time. Despite this pre-treatment, instruments made from minor steel qualities may show an irreversible greyish-black colouring after the first sterilization. By treating such instruments with Virudet 12 prior to the first reprocessing cycle, this discolouring can be prevented.
Virudet 12 can also be used for removing silicate coatings during processing of parts in washing machines.
Virudet 12 is registered as a Class I medical Device.
