Are you putting your laboratory animals and research at risk by filling implanted catheters with solutions that are not pharmaceutical-grade or, worse, not even sterile?
Our line of sterile solutions are made with USP heparin sodium and other pharmaceutical-grade ingredients following the USP <797> standard for compounding sterile preparations.
NIH's Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare states: OLAW and USDA agree that pharmaceutical-grade substances, when available, must be used to avoid toxicity or side effects that may threaten the health and welfare of vertebrate animals and / or interfere with the interpretation of research results. See this guidance document for more information.
AAALAC states: Whenever possible, pharmaceutical-grade compounds must be used [for clinical use]. If available, and suitable, pharmaceutical-grade compounds are preferred [for research use].
These solutions are not approved for human use. They are for laboratory animal research only.
