Varying instrument surface properties make it essential to select brushes whose bristles match the cleaning specifications of the instruments in question. The relative brush abrasion should be calibrated to ensure that the removal of the various kinds of soiling does not damage your highly valuable instruments. At the same time, however, the brush should also not be too soft, as this will prevent it from effectively removing contaminants.

In order to meet these challenges, Interlock Medizintechnik offers you four high-quality brushes in different grades of stiffness. Thanks to their specially designed bristles, all of the brushes are capable of removing the most stubborn of residues, including coagulated blood. With a thermal resistance of up to 134 °C, the brushes can be cleaned using standard disinfecting equipment. The brushes’ ergonomically shaped handle is suitable for both right and lefthanders.

Please refer to our brush brochure for other specialty brushes. Simply ask a member of our sales team or download the brochure from our website:

Very hard, worn hand scrub brushes are increasingly posing a problem in surgical hand disinfection, as they can cause fine micro-lesions in the skin during hand-washing. To avoid this situation, there is the Interlock disposable hand scrub brush, which reduces this effect with its soft, rounded plastic bristles yet provides a perfect cleaning result in spite of this. Widely used, these disposable hand scrub brushes are already an integral part of surgical preparation routines. With nail cleaners individually sterile-packed and wall-mounted in the practical dispenser box, they are a swift and suitable alternative to conventional brush dispensers.

Residue-free cleaning is an enormous challenge when reprocessing vascular surgery microclips and Dieffenbach vessel clips. As the jaws of the clips can only be cleaned effectively when open, Interlock has designed special spreaders which can be attached to the back of the microclips and Dieffenbach vessel clips. They will keep the clips open to ensure rinsing of the jaws throughout the entire cleaning process. The spreaders are available in different sizes in stainless steel and plastic, what means that you can reprocess clips regardless of the size!
