gigasept® pearls

Active oxygen-based instrument disinfectant for manual cleaning and disinfection with a multi-enzyme formula.

Downloads

Our plus

  • full microbiological effectiveness via its synergistic combination of active substances plus active oxygen (concluding virucidal disinfection with 2% in 10 minutes)
  • outstanding cleaning performance via its multi-enzyme formula (protease, lipase and amylase) in combination with a neutral pH (non-protein-fixing) and powerful surfactants
  • excellent material compatibility even with sensitive materials such as flexible endoscopes
  • more user safety - thanks to its the innovative pearl structure - dust-free (no risk of inhalation)
  • innovative packaging system for safe and easy removal
  • surprisingly pleasant smell

Special advice
 
Instructions for use:
The instrument disinfection granules are diluted with cold water to the desired concentration for use. Dosage: 1.0 % - 2.0 %, depending on microbiological activity. Prepare the solution with the enclosed measuring spoon. Example for use: 10 litres of a 2 % working solution is equivalent to 9.8 litres of water and 200 g gigasept® pearls. Add water and sprinkle in the appropriate amount of granules. Stir several times for the first 15 minutes. After this activation time, the working solution is ready for use. Minor undissolved residues form an active deposit of activity, but do not impair the effectiveness of the solution. Immediately after use, immerse endoscopes and instruments to be reprocessed into the working solution. Ensure complete coverage, including hollow instruments, and allow to act. After instrument reprocessing, rinse/flush thoroughly with water of at least drinking water quality, preferably deionised water, in order to completely remove residues of the disinfectant solution. Please refer to the reprocessing recommendations by the instrument manufacturer. Do not mix with other cleaning products or disinfectants. Not suitable for instruments made of brass and copper, or chrome- or nickel-plated instruments that have been mechanically pre-damaged. Replace working solutions every working day and if contamination is clearly visible. The efficacy can be checked using indicator strips (Article code: 70000746), e.g. for contaminated solution or elevated temperature.

With the addition of specific adjuvants, the pH of gigasept® pearls is buffered within a neutral range. This prevents protein coagulation (binding of proteins on surfaces) and also provides optimal material compatibility.

Carryover of small amounts of application solution from the precleaning is not expected to involve interactions with cleaning agents and disinfection agents from automated endoscope reprocessing (e.g. glutaraldehyde and peracetic acid base).
