HOSPIRA BACTERIOSTATIC WATER – 10ml
What is Bacteriostatic Water?
Bacteriostatic Water for Injection is sterile non-pyrogenic water that contains 0.9% benzyl alcohol (9mg/mL), which is added as a bacteriostatic preservative. This preparation of sterile water and benzyl alcohol (BnOH) allows repeated withdrawals to be made from a single 30mL plastic vial. Hospira, the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of bacteriostatic and sterile water, recommends that once a vial of bacteriostatic water is open the preservatives will prolong its life for up to 28 days and that after this period of time the vial should to be discarded. Other sterile waters for injection without the bacteriostatic agent (single-dose vials) should be discarded after a single-use. Visit our page to purchase online at wholesale supply prices.
