A peptide vial is a glass or plastic container used to hold a lyophilized peptide. Vials are primarily used to prepare and administer peptides for injection or other uses. They are available in several different sizes. Depending on the peptide, it may require a specific solvent or buffer to dissolve fully. Usually, water is the preferred solvent or diluent for most peptides, however some will need a special buffer solution.
Once you have the appropriate peptide vial and the corresponding diluent, you will want to prepare your injection site. First, you will want to use a sterile wipe to clean the injection area. The most common injection sites include the abdomen, thigh and lower back. Once the injection site is cleaned, you will want to apply your sterile gloves and assemble your syringe.
You will then need to withdraw the correct amount of diluent from the peptide vial into your syringe. Make sure that you only use the recommended amount of diluent. Over-diluting can cause the peptide to become unstable and lose its potency and effectiveness.
Once you have the proper amount of diluent, you will then add your dry peptide powder to the diluent. You will need to stir the mixture well to ensure that the peptide is completely dissolved. During this process, you will also need to ensure that the volume of diluent is accurate and that it is equal to the concentration of the peptide. Finally, you will need to store the reconstituted peptide in the correct temperature and location. peptide vials
