Product Description

Glutaraldehyde Solution

Application Notes

Sporicidal agent. 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. Glutaraldehyde is a disinfectant, which is rapidly effective against vegetative forms of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. It is also effective against acid-fast bacteria, bacterial spores, some fungi and viruses, including hepatitis B virus and human immunodeficiency virus. It can also be used for stabilization of proteins on agarose beads, activation of polystyrene and glass for immobilization of antibodies and antigens, and coupling peptides onto carrier proteins. Can be used for preparing emulsions for making photographic film. Also for use as an electron microscopy fixative or cell fixation.
