1.1 Glutradex

About Glutradex:

"For efficient, high-level disinfection of your endoscopes and instruments, GLUTRADEX Activated Dialdehyde Solution is a fast - acting microbicidal choice that keeps your schedule in check". Unlike other brands in market which provide 2% concentration; GLUTRADEX ensures efficient microbicidal activity by providing the concentration of 2.45% (as per the CDC Guidelines) which is a must to maintain effective concentration of 2% (as the concentration of activated Glutaraldehyde solution decreases over a period of time and reaches below the minimum effective concentration of 2%).
