A cold sterilising agent commonly used for sterilising endoscopes and other fragile equipment. It used also to be present in radiographic developer solution. It is now much less common as a cause of occupational asthma now digital radiology has removed it from x-rays and substitution has removed it from endoscope sterilisation.
