Micro-Cide 28 HLD is a 3% glutaraldehyde solution with attached powder activator. Once activated, Micro-Cide 28 HLD can be used for 28 days to provide high level disinfection or sterilization, providing the solution is above the 1.8% minimum effective concentration and is used according to directions for use.

Provides a way to effectively sterilize or achieve high level disinfection of heat sensitive reusable medical devices.
• Achieves high level disinfection of instruments in 25 minutes providing
directions for use are followed.
• Sterilizes instruments in 10 hours providing directions for use are followed.

Features:

 

  • High level disinfection of instruments in 25 minutes
  • Nearly twice as fast as the leading glutaraldehyde
  • Once activated, solution can be used for 28 days providing diections for use are followed
  • Moderate pH compatible with heat sensitive scopes

CLINICAL / IN-USE STUDIES:

Reprocessing flexible fiber endoscopes in-use studies supports  the effectiveness of Micro-Cide 28 HLD in actual use. (ASTM 1518-94 protocol).  In addition, a simulated use-test was conducted to support the contact condition for high-level disinfection of endoscopes at 25°C at 25 minutes.  The results demonstrate the effectiveness of Micro-Cide™ 28 HLD to kill M.Terrae dried on flexible fiber endoscopes.

(Studies were performed after 28 days of simulated re-use following prescribed AOAC testing  methods).

CHEMISTRY: 

Micro-Cide 28 HLD is a virtually surfactant-free, free rinsing  activated  glutaraldehyde  liquid chemical sterilant and high-level disinfectant. Its active ingredient is glutaraldehyde in a nominal concentration of 3%. When the powdered 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What test strips do you recommend to ensure the MEC is at necessary level for reuse?

Micro-Cide 28 HLD 3% Glutaraldehyde may be reused for a maximum of 28 days provided the minimum effective concentration of 1.8% Glutaraldehyde, time and temperature are maintained. Micro-MEC™ 1.8% Glutaraldehyde Monitor Strip* should be used before each use of Micro-Cide 28 HLD 3% Glutaraldehyde solution to determine the glutaraldehyde concentration is above the minimum effective concentration of 1.8%.
Do not use beyond 28 days even if the concentration of Glutaraldehyde is above the minimum effective concentration (1.8%) as indicated by the Micro-MEC™ 1.8% Glutaraldehyde Monitor Strip*. See the Package Insert for additional instructions and information regarding the reuse of Micro-Cide™ 28 HLD 3% Glutaraldehyde.
