Re: [IP] Bubble problem

> Does anyone have any idea how this bubble is created in a sealed

Sometimes, the dissolved O2 in the cartridges forms "surprise bubbles". You
can aviod this by making sure the insulin is room temp by sitting it out for
a couple hours before filling the cartridge. Also fill the cartrige and let
it sit for a couple hours so the O2 comes to the top and whack the cart on a
hard surface to make the bubble come to the resevoir. I have found that the
temperature of the insulin and the whapping it on a hard surface after it's
sat in an upright (resevoir up) cartridge for a bit, helps this alot. Of
course tho, YYMV. Good luck!
