ADAPTING TO THE AZZALURE BOTULINUM TOXIN TYPE A VIAL
WE HAVE MADE SLIGHT CHANGES TO THE DESIGN OF OUR AZZALURE VIAL.
WE HAVE INTRODUCED:
- A firmer stopper, to conform with latest industry standards
- A slightly smaller vial to increase the vacuum.
The volume of the product is unchanged.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOUR DAILY PRACTICE?
If you reconstitute within the vacuum of the vial (ie. keep the stopper in place and push the needle through it) you will not notice any changes.
However, if you remove the stopper before inserting the needle and use a syringe, such as an insulin syringe, then please read on:
Certain types of syringe have a noticeable lip at the joint with the needle. With the Azzalure vial now being around 0.2mm smaller around the neck it is possible that needles on these types of syringe may become stuck or detach in the vial if they are forced in.
HOW TO CHECK YOUR SYRINGE:
The images below highlight the diff erence in needle/syringe joints.
Please note: The recommended needle gauge for Azzalure is 29 or 30G. We also recommend Azzalure is reconstituted according to the instructions contained within the Summary of Product Characteristics found at www.medicines.org.uk.
