This website has been developed to provide accurate, informative and timely information and materials about GENUINE GLUTARALDEHYDE. It is also intended to help you determine the differences between GENUINE GLUTARALDEHYDE and counterfeit glutaraldehyde.
Since it was introduced more than six decades ago, glutaraldehyde has become one of the most effective and versatile molecules available. Unfortunately, its widespread success has spawned lookalike and counterfeit glutaraldehyde that not only deceives customers and can cost them money, but poses potential safety and handling risks for workers.
Blended by counterfeiters who are often located in China, this deceptive counterfeit glutaraldehyde can replicate the specific gravity and aldehyde titration results of GENUINE GLUTARALDEHYDE. As a result, customers do not receive what they actually paid for and specified.
It is important to bear in mind the fact that only two manufacturers, The Dow Chemical Company and BASF, have the process technology and capabilities to manufacture GENUINE GLUTARALDEHYDE.
This site will be updated regularly with a wealth of glutaraldehyde-related information. We hope you find the resources on the site beneficial, and we welcome your input and feedback.
