Do not store above 25°C. Do not refrigerate or freeze.
Store in the original packaging in order to protect the content from light.
For single use only.
Only use clear and colourless to slightly yellowish solutions.
If a precipitate has formed as a result of exposure to low temperatures, redissolve by carefully heating to 60°C accompanied by shaking. Allow to cool prior to use.
Shelf-life: 2 years.
Shelf life after dilution: Dilution can be done with 0.9% sodium chloride solution or 5% glucose solution. Stability data in concentrations of 0.35 mg/ml and 15 mg/ml have shown that the maximum shelf life of ready-made fluorouracil infusion solution is 28 days.
This shelf life refers both to refrigerator storage (2 - 8°C) including protection from light and storage at ambient temperature (20 - 25°C) with or without protection from light.
The prepared infusate demonstrated chemical and physical stability for 28 days. From a microbiological point of view, however, the product should be used immediately. If not used immediately, storage times and conditions of the prepared infusate prior to use are the responsibility of the user and would normally not be longer than 24 hours at 2 - 8°C, unless dilution has taken place under controlled and validated aseptic conditions.
