The result is recontamination with yet more duplicates.
Enzymatic agents help to digest organic debris, including bacteria due to presence of amylases, lipases and proteases, but their use is operator-dependent and if manufacturer's guidelines are not exactly followed regarding dilution of enzyme solution, its immersion time, reuse of solution greatly affects the cleaning efficacy and might lead to recontamination of dental instruments.6 In the present study, the burs in group-3 were treated with a combination of manual cleaning followed by immersion in the enzyme solution.

[18] The presence of calcium hydroxide in the paste formulations acts as a physical barrier which will stay in the root canal for longer thus preventing root canal reinfection, interrupting the nutrient supply to the remaining bacteria and thus delaying recontamination. Moreover, the presence of CHX adds substantivity to the formulations due to its absorption capacity and slow liberation of active molecules by dental tissues.
Such contamination of meals is attributed to post processing contamination (Laban et al., 2014) by dust, air movements, contaminated processing equipment (Hofacre et al., 2001) or possible recontamination from raw material during air drying either by direct contact or indirectly by insects and rodents (Elsir, 2015).
