Disinfectants

High level disinfection (HLD) removes most microbial life on surgical instuments, biosensors, etc. If instruments or equipment may be damaged by autoclaving, chemical disinfection may be used. Some chemicals that may be considered include:

  • Ortho-phthalaldehyde (OPA) like Rapicide for 5–12 minutes
  • Glutaraldehyde 2% for 20 minutes
  • Hydrogen peroxide 6%–7.5% for 20–30 minutes
  • Peracetic acid 0.2–0.35% for 5 minutes

Rapicide OPA/28 is our disinfectant of choice. It is the fastest disinfection time in the U.S. market and twice the reuse period of other OPA brands. Protect yourself by limiting your exposure to disinfectant chemicals. The low percentage of OPA and low vapor pressure reduces the irritation to your eyes, nose and throat, as compared to Glutaraldehyde.
