Horizons in Hemophilia, June 2010

Grifols, the manufacturer of Alphanate, Alphanine and Profilnine will begin including new Mix2Vial needle-less filter transfer sets in their packaging. The Mix2Vial transfer set is a plastic, needle-free transfer device with a built-in 15 micron filter specifically designed to be used with the Sterile Water for Injection diluent. This device is also packaged in the CSL Behring products Helixate FS, and Humate P. Patients should find the new sets easy to use and safer than the traditional needle. Vials of Alphanate, Alphanine and Profilnine including the Mix2Vials will be phased in over the next several months. If you would like a DemoPack for practicing, please contact the HoG or Beacon pharmacy to request one. If you have any questions about this new device, or mixing your factor, please contact your Outreach Nurse, HoG/Beacon pharmacist, or your HTC.
