    Bacteriostatic Water

    When buying Bac water are they all the same? IE bacteriostatic sodium chloride.

    Although not the same, they are close...and for our purposes of reconstituting peptide/polypeptide hormones, both options are good to go.

    Don't know who you use Beethoven, but bactiostatic water . com is great(discrete, quick, and cheap ~5-6$(Plus shipping which actually cost about the same or a bit more) for 30ml vial...

    Not a problem glad to help! .

    I've found that site is pretty considerable for what your getting... It only took about 3 days to get to me(not rushed or anything)...

    I just did a quick search(I don't think so)... & It looks like it would be better(safer) to get from a lab co or RC...

    No... That's only for a one time injection w/HCG (NaCl - sodium chloride)

    Mainly used for fertility or mono therapy...

    You could only use it for reconstituting and one time use(so if we were to use it while on we would get either 1 - 250iu(or if your on a protocol for more, ^^^)and toss lol big waste

    No no no, like I said I have heard some bad stories about ebay unless it's from one of the medical sites but I doubt it.

    The water that mine came with is sodium chloride, it just doesn't bring enough. I like it more diluted for multiple pins.

    Are you on HCG therapy, Beethoven(for fertility)??

    NaCl is for one time use only... Hence either Bac water or liq B12 as well...
    I see your in the states too!

    Yes for hcg as part of my protocol. Now if this is for one time use, does that mean you would have to pin the whole bottle at one time?

    Yes for fertility... but if your gonna use 250iu/or whatever your protocol is then you could use what you need to buy the rest is wasted.... Whether it's a 2500iu vial or 5,000iu vial they will be for a one time use only injection(w/the NaCl amp) or whatever your one time use would be...

    It's a waste not to use the BAC water inho....

    So when you reconstitute you have to pin that day and the rest is wasted?

    Yes I believe that is what they do(must be for a one time use - or mixing w/it wouldn't be an issue) ... If they have a 5000iu freeze dried vial and reconstitute w/NaCl it's going to be used that day... The bac water protects it from bacteria growing inside of it(.9% BA in the bac water)...

    Funny to see this thread, I just made a gallon today,

    Just get 50mls of BA for 4 bucks throw out 8mls and add the rest to a gallon of distilled and sterilized water and for 6 bucks you have enough for you and the rest of the board for life.

    Good to know. How do you store it to keep it sterile?
