Read that Cidex is 60% stronger mL per mL. Excel has 1.5% Glut. Thus dilluting 6:1 (water: cidex) will give excel.

dealmed.com sells it too.

Cidex Plus is 3.4%
But that doesn't mean you mix 6:1 to get to Excel strength...

Isn't it more like 2 parts Cidex Plus to 3 parts distiller water?

Was just rethinking the solution. I don't either is correct.
Here is a calculator for the solution.

Ok thanks. Awhile ago I picked some up at Oceans and Seas for a decent price.

If you must buy excel (water and glutaraldehyde) it is cheapest at LNT. Cidex is glutaraldehyde. Don't understand why you want to buy water when it is not necesarry.
