Cleaning surgical instruments prior to sterilization will maintain and improve the passive layer of surgical stainless steel that protects against corrosion. Cleaning surgical instruments prior to sterilization is the prerequisite for terminally sterilizing surgical instruments.

The primary purpose cleaning is to remove all inorganic and organic bioburden debris from surfaces of the surgical instruments.

The secondary purpose of cleaning is to maintain and improve the passive corrosion protection layer of surgical stainless steel. The passive layer is provided by the manufacturer of surgical stainless steel to resist (prevent) corrosion. Proper cleaning of surgical instruments will maintain and improve this passive layer.

Cleaning, whether done manually or in a surgical instrument washer will be more effective if pre-cleaning is adequate. Soaking with neutral pH enzymatic surgical instrument cleaners will facilitate effectively removing debris.

The optimal temperature for soaking surgical instruments in an enzyme detergent surgical instrument cleaner is less than 110 degrees F. This prevent the baking-on of the proteinaceous bioburden, such as blood.

The proper cleaning of medical devices prior to sterilization will maintain and improve the protective passive layer of surgical stainless steel.
