How to take HUMATE-P

Multiple vial sizes to meet your individual needs

HUMATE-P is available in a variety of vial sizes. Multiple vial sizes may help reduce waste and make vials easier to store and carry.

Before reconstitution, HUMATE-P can be safely stored at room temperature (up to 25°C [77°F]) for up to 36 months. (After reconstitution, HUMATE-P should be used within 3 hours.)
