THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS INTENDED FOR MEDICAL OR HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS ONLY :

Instructions for handling
Use a sterile giving set for infusion of Aminoplasmal B. Braun 5 % E.
If in the setting of complete parenteral nutrition it is necessary to add other nutrients such as carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins and trace elements to this medicinal product, admixing must be performed under strict aseptic conditions. Mix well after admixture of any additive. Pay special attention to compatibility.
Special precaution for storage
The product must not be used if the solution is not clear or the container or its closure are damaged.
Cool storage of the solution, below 15 °C, may lead to formation of crystals, that can, however, be easily dis- solved by gentle warming at 25 °C until dissolution is complete. Shake container gently to ensure homogeneity.

From the microbiological point of view, mixtures should be administered immediately after preparation. If not administered immediately, storage times and conditions of mixtures prior to use are the responsibility of the user and would normally not be longer than 24 hours at 2 °C – 8 °C, unless mixing has taken place under con- trolled and validated aseptic conditions.
