Good question! 

Is your medical professional reconstituting peptides correctly?

Check on their procedure!

Reconstituting powdered products involves mixing the powder with a suitable diluent, such as bacteriostatic water. Here's a step-by-step guide:

General Reconstitution Steps

  1. Prepare Your Work Area: Ensure your workspace is clean and sanitized.
  2. Gather Materials: You'll need bacteriostatic water, alcohol swabs, sterile syringes (insulin syringes are readily available and each to , and the peptide vial.
  3. Sanitize the Vial: Wipe the rubber stopper of the peptide vial with an alcohol swab.
  4. Draw Bacteriostatic Water: Use a sterile syringe to draw the required amount of bacteriostatic water.
  5. Inject Bacteriostatic Water into the Vial: Slowly inject the water into the peptide vial, aiming it against the wall of the vial to prevent foaming.
  6. Mix the Solution: Gently swirl the vial until the peptide powder is fully dissolved. 
  7. Storage: Store the reconstituted peptide in the refrigerator to minimise degradation due to light and fluctuations in temperature.

Example Concentrations for a 10mg Vial

The amount of water that your medical professional decides to add is up to them, whether that is 1ml, 2ml or 4ml it just changes the concentration of the dosage, there is no one correct way of reconstituting.

If you have a product which has 10mg of active ingredient and you wish to reconstitute it please see the example instructions below.

To make 10mg/ml (10mg of active ingredient per 1ml of liquid)

  1. Measure Water: Draw 1 ml of bacteriostatic water.
  2. Inject Water: Inject the 1 ml of bacteriostatic water into the vial.
  3. Result: You now have a solution with a concentration of 10mg/ml.          This means that for every 1ML of liquid you have there is 10mg of active ingredient per ml.

    This means that 0.1ml = 1mg
    0.2ml = 2mg
    0.3ml = 3mg 
    and so on.

To make 5mg/ml: (5mg of active ingredient per 1ml of liquid)

  1. Measure Water: Draw 2 ml of bacteriostatic water.
  2. Inject Water: Inject the 2 ml of bacteriostatic water into the vial.
  3. Result: You now have a solution with a concentration of 5mg/ml.
    This means that for every 1ML of liquid you have there is 5mg of active ingredient per ml.

    This means that 0.1ml = 0.5mg
    0.2ml = 1mg
    0.3ml = 1.5mg 
    and so on.

To make 2.5mg/ml: (2.5mg of active ingredient per 1ml of liquid)

  1. Measure Water: Draw 4 ml of bacteriostatic water.
  2. Inject Water: Inject the 4 ml of bacteriostatic water into the vial.
  3. Result: You now have a solution with a concentration of 2.5mg/ml.         This means that for every 1ML of liquid you have there is 2.5mg of active ingredient per ml.

    This means that 0.1ml = 0.25mg
    0.2ml = .5mg
    0.3ml = 0.75mg 
    and so on.

By following these steps, you can safely and accurately reconstitute your peptides to the desired concentration. Always ensure you're working in a sterile environment and adhere to dosage and storage guidelines provided.
