Yeah, that is pretty shady. Please let me know what the seller responds to you with. I haven't opened my bottle yet and kept the box it was shipped in if I had to send it back. It may be as simple as that it hasn't passed whatever FDA test these things go through, or, and hopefully not, its some awful, awful thing.
I received my gallon the other day. Its not Metricide 14 but a product called Omnicide 14 N.S. It has the same 2.6% glut, so I am assuming its just as good to use. Has anyone tried this specific one before?
I got mine today and Its the same thing.
The ingredients are exactly the same with Metricide 14.
Be careful some metricide has surfactants in it. I would double check metricide 28
The surfactant makes the glutaraldehyde penetrate cell membranes better, which makes it a more effective medical sterilizer.
While no MSDS for Metricide 28 I've found actually lists the surfactant used, it seems the one most commonly combined with glutaraldehyde is Poly [Oxyethlene (dimethyliminio) ethylene (dimethyliminio) ethylene dichloride].
Also known as Busan 77.
Also know as... Algaefix.
Just FYI. Metricide is used undiluted for its intended medical purpose. We dilute it to such an extreme degree that I rather doubt the trace of extra ingredient would have any measurable impact.
But this is why I've warned against casually mixing glut and Algaefix. It's possible the result might be unexpectedly potent.
yea sorry my post was confusing...I thought I was buying metricide and they sent omnicide. Not just misleading photo but plain out lied. seller also lied about shipping it when he really didn't. all in all a bad transaction on ebay.
