What is Protein Residue Testing?

Protein residue testing is a chemical-based test usually associated within a healthcare setting.

The test is used to detect residual levels of protein on the surface of a surgical instrument, that is not otherwise identifiable by visual inspection. Protein residue testing focuses on certain types of protein commonly present in blood, and is an essential part of a hospital sterile services regulatory compliance.

To achieve full compliance of the latest HTM 01 – 01: 2016 for the decontamination of reusable surgical instruments, evidence of good practices is required, including logging evidence of each protein residue test carried out within the decontamination department as proof of a traceable process. Protein residue tests are essential to the day to day running of a sterile service department.
