I have recently started using Trimix injections.  I am very happy with the results.
 
I need to know how long I can store the trimix in a syringe before use.  In other words, once I have filled a syringe, can I keep it refrigerated a few days and then use it safely?

If you use proper sterile procedures and there is no contamination you should be able to keep it in the fridge for a few days. The key is keeping it sterile.

Hi NightShift,
LOL I see you posted early in the day, so maybe you are one your way in to work?

Welcome to HealingWell. This is a great forum and I believe you will receive great advice, like apacker1950's. I can understand the sterile part. There are many caring folks here so make yourself at home.
