MetriCide 28 is intended for use in a tray system with a variety of noncritical, semi-critical, and critical devices – including anesthesia equipment, respiratory therapy equipment, metallic equipment or instruments, rubber objects, plastic objects, and thermometers.
MetriCide 28 may be reused up to 28 days, assuming the minimum effective concentration of glutaraldehyde, as measured by a chemical indicator, remains within acceptable parameters and other conditions of use are met. MetriCide 28 is recommended for immersible and heat-sensitive equipment and instruments and contains surfactants. MetriCide is an essential part of the high-level disinfection processes in a healthcare facility’s Endoscopy Department.
MetriTest™ 1.8% Test Strips are a glutaraldehyde concentration monitor for use in glutaraldehyde-containing germicide solutions with a minimum effective concentration (MEC) of 1.8% glutaraldehyde. It is recommended to test the glutaraldehyde solution prior to each use to help prevent healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs).
