Long the standard for rapid, high-level disinfectant used in hospitals and healthcare facilities, CIDEX OPA Solution is ideal for reprocessing sensitive and semi-critical equipment such as flexible endoscopes. Part of the Johnson & Johnson family, CIDEX OPA Solution is glutaraldehyde-free (0.55% ortho-phthalaldehyde). It achieves high-level disinfection in five minutes (at 20 degrees C) via automated reprocessing systems or 12 minutes after manual cleaning and soaking.

Powerful -- yet gentle on common medical-grade materials. It provides broad-spectrum activity against bacteria (e.g., Mycobacterium tuberculosis), viruses (e.g., HIV-1) and all fungi. CIDEX OPA Solution boasts universal acceptance by highly regarded U.S. governmental agencies such as the FDA and CDC, making it the first choice for instrument reprocessing.

This solution is reusable for up to 14 days; to monitor the solution's efficacy during reuse, CIDEX OPA Test Strips are also available and sold separately.

Vitality Medical offers a full line of Hospital Disinfectants and Clean Room Supplies, such as Sunset Healthcare Solutions' CPAP Cleaning Wipes.

Product Features and Benefits:

  • Fast Turnaround -- High-level disinfection within five minutes (automated processing) or 12 minutes (manual reprocessing).
  • Cost-effective -- Packaged in economical gallon jugs, the solution is reusable for up to 14 days (monitor with CIDEX Test Strips, item number 20392 - sold separately). The medical disinfectant boasts a 75-day shelf life after opening and a two-year shelf life when unopened.
  • Safe for Personnel -- Low-vapor formula is ready-to-use. The no-mix solution not only expedites reprocessing, but also limits risk of accidents (e.g., improper mixing).
  • Environmentally Friendly -- can be disposed down drains, per local regulations, because it oxidizes with water and converts into carbon dioxide.
  • Gentle on Instruments -- This disinfectant solution can be used on common medical-grade materials such as aluminum, brass, copper, silicone rubber and stainless steel.

Product Specifications:

  • Product numbers: 20390 (gallon jugs) and 20392 (Test Strips)
  • Liquid color: Light blue
  • Use: Manufacturer recommends wearing eye protection and chemical-resistant gloves
  • Solubility: Water-soluble

Excellent Disinfectant
This product works very well for the sensitive medical equipment we utilized that we cannot disinfect through heat. I recommend also purchasing the test strips so you can best monitor the effectiveness of the solution across the 28 days of use.
Great solution only wish smaller container was an option
We use this solution for our ultrasound probe only, works very well although we always have to dispose of close to 1/3 bottle due to expiration dating once opened.
CIDEX OPA Gallons by Johnson & Johnson Review
This is a great solution. It is economical as it increases the life of the instruments and instruments do not require repairs frequently. I have had a very good experience with this and would recommend this product.
