Impression came to technician with blood, what is the suitable disinfectant.. Glutaraldehyde



Impression came to technician with blood, what is the suitable disinfectant:

  • a. Glutaraldehyde.***

Five laboratories reported that some alginates resulted in casts with poor surface properties when immersed in hypochlorite (0.1 and 1%), sodium dichloroisocyanurate, and 2% glutaraldehyde solutions. This paper highlights that there is no universally recognized impression disinfection/sterilization protocol. It is recommended that all impressions should at least undergo a disinfecting procedure by immersion in 1% sodium hypochlorite for a minimum of 10 minutes.
