Applications
Glutaraldehyde is used for cross-linking proteins and polyhydroxy materials. Also used as a fixative for tissues and as an amine-reactive homobifunctional crosslinker and as a disinfectant for medical equipment. It is also used in coupling reaction of biotin hydrazides to nucleic acids which is useful for conjugating fluorescent hydrazides and hydroxylamines to DNA and for stabilization ofproteins on agarose beads,activation of polystyrene and glass, for immobilization of antibodies and antigens. It is a disinfectant, which is rapidly effective against vegetative forms of Gram-positiveand Gram-negative bacteria.
