ScalpaTox is best stored in cold storage ( 2ºC-8ºC).
ScalpaTox Shelf Life- unopened is 36 months from manufacturing date.
Reconstituted Shelf Life- 6 weeks in cold storage at 4ºC. Many recent case studies reveal longer cold storage periods after reconstituted show the same effectiveness as product stored for 4-6 hours after reconstituted. You as the injector, can draw your own conclusions as to what recommendation you choose to incorporate into your practice.
Needle Size- The preferred needle and syringe used for neurotoxin injections is the fixed needle 100 unit insulin syringe with a 30G needle. The 8mm needle is commonly used in clinics to administer neurotoxins because the injections are shallow.
Ingredients: Each vial of Scalpatox contains 150 units Clostridium botulinum type A neurotoxin complex, Albumin Human and sodium chloride
Mixing Instructions for 150u vial-
Each Vial of ScalpaTox comes with the appropriate amount of saline in a second vial. You can also use your own Preservative Free Diluent- free 0.9% sodium chloride injection.
- Using an appropriate sized needle and syringe, draw up appropriate ml of 0.9% non-preserved sterile saline. We include the saline.
- Insert the needle and slowly inject the saline into the Scalpatox vial.
- Disconnect the syringe from the needle, then gently mix the Scalpatox with the saline by rotating the vial. Record the date and time of reconstitution on a sterile pouch and store the prepared Scalpatox vial (with needle left in place) in the sterile pouch in cold storage.
- Attach a new sterile syringe to needle and draw at least 0.5ml (for glabellar lines) or the amount needed for injection area(s), of the properly reconstituted fluid into the syringe by angling the needle into the bottom corner of the vial for full extraction. Do not completely invert the vial. Expel any air bubbles in the syringe barrel.
- Disconnect the syringe from the needle used for reconstitution and attach a 30 gauge to 33 gauge needle for injection, and prime your needle.
NOTE: In the case where the entire vial (150 units) will be used on one patient or split among back-to-back patients, many case studies reveal some injectors prefer to remove rubber protector cap (when using fixed needle syringes) from the reconstituted vial, because the shorter needle length can not penetrate through the rubber cap successfully.
