Abstract

A study on the rate of inactivation by glutaraldehyde of coxsackievirus was conducted using different concentrations, temperatures, and pH values. It was found, that 2% glutaraldehyde at pH 7.4 and 25 C, as recommended for a sporicide, reduced the titer of infectious virus by 2 log10 U in 1 min or less. The reduction was not negatively affected by high concentrations of organic matter (serum and animal spillings) in the reaction mixtures.
