Product Description

Glutaraldehyde Solution

Application Notes

Gluteraldehyde is a protein cross-linking agent. Also possesses sporicidal activity. This product is also suitable for use as an electron microscopy fixative. Glutaraldehyde reacts through cross-linking to impart water resistance to protein and polyhydroxy compounds. It is also a reducing agent for photochemicals. In organic syntheses, the reactive carbonyl groups of glutaraldehyde suggest its use as an intermediate for the production of resins, dyestuffs, and pharmaceuticals.
