MetriCide is typically used to sterilize heat sensitive medical devices and instruments. For example, if you were a dentist and needed to sterilize instruments you would pour some Metricide into a container and add the instruments for 20 minutes. The MetriCide could be used for up to 14 days and then would have lost most of it's sterilization properties and would need to be replaced.
My experience has been that as long as I store my Glut in a cool, dark, location and it remains viable for well over a year after I have opened the container.
