Ortho-Phthalaldehyde also called OPA or Rapid Cidex is favored over glutaraldehyde for high-level disinfection, because it does not require activation, is stable over a wide pH range, does not cause irritation of mucous membranes, and it has a barely perceptible odor. Its activity is greater than that of a simple 2% glutaraldehyde ie. Simple Cidex and high-level disinfection is achieved with a contact time of 12 minutes at or above 20°C. The primary disadvantage of OPA is that it stains tissues and mucous membranes gray. Protective equipment must be worn when handling the solution, and it must be rinsed thoroughly from items after treatment. Irritation can occur with eye contact. OPA is also more expensive than glutaraldehyde. Solutions can be reused for a maximum of 14 days or 14 times whatever comes earlier.
