    Multi-dose Vials: Multi-dose vials are single vials that contain enough venom/venom protein so that, when reconstituted as directed with 11 ml of diluent, will produce ten full maintenance doses. When reconstituted as directed with 11 ml of diluent, the multi-dose vials contain 100 µg/ml of venom protein for single-venom products, and 300 µg/ml for the mixed vespid product.

    HSA Diluent: A diluent containing 0.03% human serum albumin (HSA), 0.9% sodium chloride, and 0.4% phenol should be used for reconstituting and diluting these preparations. This diluent is available in the U.S. from ALK in vials containing 1.8 ml (packages of 100), or 30 ml (packages of 1 or 5) of diluent.
