DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences Launches Biobased Enzymes for Medical Instrument Cleaning18 April 2019
“Our OPTIMASE® enzyme portfolio offers a better, more efficient and cleaner biobased alternative for detergent manufacturers that serve the medical instrument cleaning industry.”
WILMINGTON, Del., May 6, 2019 – DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences (DuPont) today announced the launch of its industry-leading OPTIMASE® portfolio of biobased enzymes for medical instrument cleaning applications.
“At DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences, we understand the unique needs and specific challenges faced by medical instrument cleaning customers,” said Sheril Vaidhyan, Global Segment Leader, Industrial Markets and Hygiene, Home and Personal Care, DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences. “Our OPTIMASE® enzyme portfolio offers a better, more efficient and cleaner biobased alternative for detergent manufacturers that serve the medical instrument cleaning industry.”
The DuPont™ OPTIMASE® portfolio delivers optimal cleaning performance in medical instrument cleaning applications, while helping customers optimize formulation costs. DuPont enzymes provide customers with excellent cleaning performance for the entire shelf life of the products with minimal or no stabilizers needed in the formulations.
One of the key pillars of the OPTIMASE® portfolio is OPTIMASE® PR 300 L. Due to the innovative protein engineering approach, this liquid protease enables improved stability in liquid detergents. This means it maintains high performance while reducing the need for enzyme stabilizing ingredients, saving formulation space and potential cost.
The DuPont Home and Personal Care business produces enzymes that deliver sustainable innovations across a wide range of home and personal care products, especially in the laundry and cleaning sectors.
