Full Prescribing Info
Each mL contains: Human Albumin 0.2 g.
Albumin (Human) 20% is a sterile aqueous solution for single dose intravenous administration containing 20% human albumin (weight/volume). Human Albumin 20% is prepared by a cold alcohol fractionation method from pooled human plasma obtained from venous blood. The product is stabilized with 0.08% millimole sodium caprylate and 0.08 millimole sodium acetyltryptophanate per gram of protein. Human Albumin 20% is osmotically equivalent to five times its volume of normal citrate plasma. A liter of Human Albumin 20% solution contains 130-160 milliequivalents of sodium ion. The product contains no preservatives. Human Albumin 20% is heated at 60°C for ten hours. No positive assertion can be made, however, that this heat treatment completely destroys the causative agents of viral hepatitis which have resulted from the administration of Human Albumin 20%.
