EmPower Dual Enzymatic Detergent is a multi-purpose, dual-enzymatic cleaning solution indicated for use as a pre-soak, an ultrasonic cleaning solution and an evacuation system cleaner. EmPower removes blood, tissue, mucous, and other protein-rich fluids, while providing advanced corrosion protection. The manufacturer describes the product as safe for stainless steel, soft metals, hard plastics, rubber and glass. Formulated with a neutral pH (7.5-8.5), EmPower can be used in manual, ultrasonic and automatic cleaning systems and is compatible for use with amalgam separators. EmPower is available in a one-gallon concentrate with pump dispenser and includes a pictorial instruction sheet for appropriate and consistent dilution. EmPower is also available in a fragrance-free version. EmPower was evaluated by 34 consultants in over 1100 uses. This dual enzymatic cleaning solution received a 91% clinical rating.

Product Features

EmPower performs multiple cleaning functions and is simple to use. It is effective in cleaning debris off of instruments and rinses away cleanly. The pump dispenses one ounce, which is mixed with one gallon of water; the blue liquid concentrate mixes thoroughly with water. No staining of instruments was noted. Thirty-four percent of consultants rated EmPower better than other cleaners they were using and 54% rated it equivalent. Fifty-nine percent would switch to EmPower and 71% would recommend it to a colleague.

Clinical Tips

  • Mix with warm water.
  • Shake mixed solution well before each use.
