High Level Disinfectants
Per the CDC, more healthcare associated infection outbreaks have been linked to contaminated endoscopes than to any other medical device. To prevent the spread of HAI, endoscopes must be properly cleaned and disinfected using an instrument detergent and high-level disinfectant after each use. Micro-Cide 28 HLD is a surfactant-free, activated glutaraldehyde liquid chemical sterilant and high-level disinfectant. When the powder activator is added, the solution turns green in color to indicate its readiness for use. In addition to the active ingredient, this ready-to-use solution contains buffers, wetting agents, a rust and corrosion inhibitor and a pleasant fragrance.
