When developing our deconex® cleaning agents and disinfectants, we put thorough testing of performance, effect and material compatibility at the top of the list. To ensure our products are ready to market, we work in close cooperation with recognised test laboratories and with manufacturers of medical products. External tests are supplemented with in-house test methods so you can rely on products that are based on experimental evidence. This gives you the reliability you want for every application.

Manual reprocessing


Although automated processes have already become established in practice in many countries, the use of manual products cannot be dispensed with: for example, operating theatre instruments are now protected from corrosion and pre-cleaned using foam products prior to long periods of storage. Endoscopes are always subjected to coarse and brush cleaning with appropriate manual products. However, the manual final disinfection of non-critical medical devices or the use of cleansing disinfectants is also standard in many areas.

However you clean manually: the products in our deconex® range comply with the latest scientific findings as well as legal requirements and standards.

Endoscope in the hand


Flexible endoscopes are among the medical devices that have been shown to be most likely to be contaminated with impurities and micro-organisms. Cleaning is therefore a crucial factor in the entire treatment cycle, especially the efficient removal of biofilms.

Our enzymatic detergents and disinfectants dissolve and remove not only blood but also impurities such as fats and carbohydrates. The formulations are tested according to the latest standards such as DIN EN ISO 17111. This ensures maximum safety for patients and staff.

Automatic reprocessing


Automated instrument reprocessing has become more and more demanding in recent years. Complex instruments, sometimes made of a mix of materials, a wide variety of contaminants and long service lives demand reprocessing products with the highest standards.

Whichever products from our full range you use: our cleaners, neutralisers, rinse aids, disinfectants and care products deliver hygienic safety, material compatibility, economy and sustainability. From these first-class products, we develop automated treatment processes for you that are 100% tailored to your needs:

Anchor: endoskope-maschinell

Endoscope is reprocessed by machine


The reprocessing of flexible endoscopes is a particular challenge due to their construction and contamination by impurities and micro-organisms. After manual cleaning, automated processes should be preferred.

In addition to high material compatibility, our deconex® cleaners and disinfectants deliver certified, comprehensive effectiveness according to DIN EN ISO 15883-4. In this way, patients, users and third parties are comprehensively protected.

Anchor: steckbecken


Bedpans and urine bottles are non-critical or semi-critical medical devices. The gold standard of reprocessing is thermal processes, which are subject to the normative requirements of DIN EN ISO 15883-3. Depending on the type of appliance, limescale inhibitors/rinse aids as well as an additional cleaner must be used for reprocessing and value conservation.

Our products offer you a variety of benefits: from proven cleaning power, rinsing power and descaling power to excellent material compatibility.

Anchor: betten-container

Beds / containers

One trend in the reprocessing of bed frames is the use in decontamination systems, which can also be used for transport trolleys, containers, operating tables and furniture as well as operating theatre shoes.

Our cleaners are specially designed for thermolabile products with a lot of electronics, such as bedsteads. They have a high level of material compatibility and effectiveness.

Our services

Support from A to Z: in addition to an extensive range of manual and automated deconex® products for instrument reprocessing, we also offer our customers a wide range of services - from status quo analysis to derouging and training.

Status quo analysis

If processes are not running as they should, or cleaning results are below expectations, it can be beneficial to determine a comprehensive baseline situation.We offer this service for the entire instrument cycle, including a presentation of the results at your site.

Process development and process optimisation

Laws, standards and guidelines demand validated processes. However, this does not necessarily mean that they are ideal.We are your partner when it comes to optimising process factors. Our technical team can help you improve cleaning performance and material compatibility and reduce process costs.

Basic cleaning / Deep cleaning

Coatings and stains on instruments are not always a hygiene problem, but they make it difficult to judge whether they are clean or not. So it is an advantage to remove existing discolourations and stains with special products and processes. This option is not only available for surgical instruments, but can also be used for WDs and E-WDs.


Autoclaves heavily contaminated with rouge carry the risk that, during the harsh conditions of sterilisation (vacuum, overpressure, steam-saturated atmosphere), the reddish-brown discolouration is transferred to the medical devices being sterilised. With the help of a special pH-neutral patented process, the coatings can be removed safely - and almost without interfering with the operation in the central sterilisation department.
