A survey of exposure to enzymes in cleaning solutions used to clean endoscopes - RR972
Proteolytic enzymes are a recognised risk for respiratory and dermal allergy. Cases of asthma have been identified in health care workers using cleaning solutions containing these enzymes to decontaminate endoscopes and surgical equipment. An assessment was made of three hospitals using enzyme products to clean endoscopes. Air samples showed that approximately a third of the personal and a half of the static air samples contained protease activity at levels that may pose risk for allergic sensitisation. Wipe samples demonstrated protease on surfaces where manual pre-cleaning of endoscopes was undertaken...
