Re: [IPk] insulins



If you can get hold of the product inserts for these insulins they will
probably tell you what you need. For example the product insert for Novo
rapid says:" The active substance in NovoRapid is Insulin Aspart produced by
biotechnology. Novorapid also contains the following other
substances:Glycerol,Phenol, Metacresol, Zinc chloride, Sodium chloride,
Disodium phosphate dihydrate, Sodium Hydroxide, Hydrochloric acid and water
for injections" - Quite a cocktail really.

Much of this information is available on line through
http://emc.vhn.net/public/ if you want more. (Virtual health Network)

Hope this helps
