Ortho-phthalaldehyde is a kind of pharmaceutical intermediate, which has been widely used in amine alkaloids, fluorometer histamine determination and medical inspection. The finished product is light yellow needle-like crystal, soluble in water, alcohol, ether and other organic solvents, without bad smell and stable in chemical properties. It was first used for endoscopic disinfection in 1994 and found that it has a broad-spectrum and efficient bactericidal effect. Subsequent studies have shown that o-phthalaldehyde has many advantages compared with glutaraldehyde. As a new type of high-efficiency chemical disinfectant for external use, in 1999, ortho-phthalaldehyde has passed the US FDA certification.

What is high level disinfection?

High-level disinfection refers to killing all bacterial propagules including mycobacteria, viruses, fungi and their spores and most bacterial spores. Commonly used methods to achieve high-level disinfection include the use of chlorine-containing preparations, chlorine dioxide,glutaraldehyde, o-phthalaldehyde, peracetic acid, hydrogen peroxide, ozone, iodine tincture, acidic oxidized electrolyzed water (AEOW), etc., and chemical agents that can achieve sterilization effects. Disinfectant is a method of disinfecting with appropriate concentration and effective action time under specified conditions.



What is the difference between OPA and glutaraldehyde?

Compared with glutaraldehyde, the advantages of ortho-phthalaldehyde are as follows:


1. Quick turn-around


Ready to use, no activation, mixing or dilution required.


Save 50%-70% time than glutaraldehyde.


Shorten the cycle of endoscope disinfection and improve the turnover rate.


2. More efficient


Broad-spectrum bactericidal efficacy.


Kills 2% glutaraldehyde-tolerant mycobacteria in 5 minutes.


3. More durable


At high loads, phthalaldehyde can last for an average of 140 disinfection cycles, while glutaraldehyde can last for 90 disinfection cycles.


4. Safer


No ventilation is required.


No OSHA permissible limit requirements are required.


No inhalation toxicity and mucosal toxicity.


Widely used so far no cases of acute toxicity, teratogenicity and mutagenesis have been found.


Unique coloring tips.


5. Gentle: much more kind to devices


Does not contain any surfactants.


near neutral pH.


Broad material compatibility.



What are the chemicals used in high-level disinfection?
