Anybody know if Hg can be allowed to freeze while still in the powder state. I know it can not be frozen after re-constitution. Am worried about shipping to northern most states during this time of year.
I'm pretty sure those powders are freeze dried so i don't see why not... i may be wrong though
Any MODS out there that can help out on this
oh fine be that way then hahah
This belongs in the IGF/GH section.
Keep lyophilized peptides in the freezer.
Anybody heard of Lilly pharmaceuticals?
I take that as a yes?
So, I take it they would be knowledgeable about the product?
Thanks I appreciate all the help. I will give them a call. Will let you know about freezing the powder
From Humatrope's website:
"How should your patients store Humatrope?
Keep vials and cartridges of Humatrope and diluent for Humatrope in a refrigerator; do not freeze them. Before mixing, check the expiration dates. Do not use expired Humatrope or diluent. After reconstituting Humatrope, keep it in a refrigerator --- again, do not freeze it. Once mixed, Humatrope must be used within 14 days (vials) or 28 days (cartridges). Do not use any Humatrope solution if it is more than 14 days old (vials) or 28 days old (cartridges). Do not shake the Humatrope. If the Humatrope is cloudy or contains any particles or sediment, do not use it. Patients should report the situation to their Humatrope provider, who will advise them about what to do with the product. Colorless specks are okay; these are tiny molecules of protein"
Yup, just got off the phone with research and development at Lilly. They told me the same. Under no cirumstances allow the un constituted powder or re-constituted product to freeze. Degradation will begin In 2 hrs and the peptides will be rendered usless in less than 6 hrs. So, do not allow the powder to freeze.
