Many drugs that need to be injected first have to be diluted in water. However, using tap water for such drugs is not an option due to the serious health risks associated. Not only is tap water not saline enough (i.e. doesn’t contain enough salt), but it also can be contaminated with bacteria.
In order to safely inject drugs that require dilution, the safest option is to use bacteriostatic water (biostatic water).
What Is Bacteriostatic Water?
This highly specialised medical product is specifically designed for the injection of various forms of drugs, including Peptide-type supplements.
It is a much safer option than just using sterile saline water, which can become contaminated over time and during handling. Most sterile water vials are designated as single use only meaning that a lot of it can end up wasted over time.
How Does Bacteriostatic Water Work?
By combining sterile saline water with a small amount of benzyl alcohol the integrity of the water is maintained and no bacteria will be able to develop in such an environment. Essentially, the alcohol acts as a preservative and protects the sterile water over time.
Again, the preservative added to bacteriostatic water ensures that no bacteria can grow within the expiry date. With all types of medical injections safety has to be the top concern.
