What is the difference between Aldehyde-based HLDs and Oxidative HLDs?
|Aldehyde-based HLDs||Oxidative HLDs such as Revital-Ox RESERT High Level Disinfectant - Chemosterilant|
|Aldehyde-based high level disinfectants have the tendency to fixate organic soils onto medical device surfaces (1, 2)||Oxidative high level disinfectants do not fixate organic soils onto medical device surfaces (1, 2)|
|Research has shown that aldehyde-based HLDs have resistance to certain microorganisms (3, 4)||Oxidative high level disinfectants have no known resistance to microorganisms3|
|Multiple rinses are required after soaking contact time||1 rinse for a minimum of 1 minute unless longer time is specified by the instrument manufacturer*|
*Always follow the HLD manufacturer’s instructions for use, rinsing instructions referenced are for Revital-Ox RESERT High Level Disinfectant
