Special precautions for disposal and other handling: The solution can be directly administered by the intravenous route or it can also be diluted in an isotonic solution (e.g. 5 % glucose or 0.9% sodium chloride).
Albumin solutions must not be diluted with water for injections as this may cause haemolysis in recipients.
If large volumes are administered, the product should be warmed to room or body temperature before use.
Do not use solutions which are cloudy or have deposits. This may indicate that the protein is unstable or that the solution has become contaminated.
Do not use unless seal is intact. If leaks are found, discard.
Once the container has been opened, the contents should be used immediately. Any unused medicinal product or waste material should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.
Incompatibilities: This medicinal product must not be mixed with other medicinal products (except the recommended diluents previously mentioned in Special precautions for disposal and other handling), whole blood and packed red cells. Further human albumin should not be mixed with protein hydrolysates (e.g. parenteral nutrition) or solutions containing alcohol since these combinations may cause the proteins to precipitate.
