Recent studies show that appropriate manual cleaning of endoscopes reduces the number of microorganisms and organic load by 4-6 LOGS or 99,99% (Puri 2017), highlighting the critical importance of thorough pre-cleaning. High level disinfection can only be reached with a decent pre-cleaning process, as this prevents the formation of biofilm. While the pre-cleaning process takes only a short amount of time, its importance in the reprocessing of endoscopes is critical. If the instrument is not
