Bacteriostatic Water – Product Details

Bacteriostatic water is used in laboratories, hospitals, and research facilities worldwide as a bacteriostatic agent and a key ingredient. Bacteriostatic agents have been used since the beginning of modern medicine. These agents prevent bacteria growth in various formulas, canisters, containers, and utensils.

Pure Rawz only sells bacteriostatic water for research purposes because it is not intended for regular home use.


What is Bacteriostatic Water for Sale?

Bacteriostatic water sometimes referred to as bac water or bacteriostatic sterile water, is sterile water that contains 0.9% benzyl alcohol.

This type of water is used to dilute or dissolve pharmaceuticals. Benzyl alcohol inhibits or stops the growth of the bulk of potentially contaminating microorganisms, allowing the container to be reused multiple times (usually via a sterile needle).

Like antimicrobial agents, benzyl alcohol is effective in prohibiting growth, yet it cannot kill bacteria.

With the same name, bacteriostatic water for injection is available generically. Researchers use sterile bacteriostatic water to dilute medications or drugs for intramuscular or subcutaneous injection.

Bacteriostatic water is only allowed for research purposes. Individuals seeking to purchase online bacteriostatic Water should be researchers currently testing research chemicals.


How do researchers use bacteriostatic water?

Following these steps has allowed researchers to dilute compounds with water infused with bacteriostatic agent :

  1. The researchers used an alcohol pad to wipe the bacteriostatic water vial. This is required to reduce the chance that the material will get contaminated before it is used in research.
  2. The researchers insert a needle into a vial without contacting the fluid. Researchers avoid a dangerous partial vacuum inside the vial by pumping air inside.
  3. The bacteriostatic vial’s rubber stopper is meticulously cleaned before the needle is placed. The researchers then stopped the suggested research dose.

Before using a substance in any possible research, researchers should always refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for the suggested vehicle, suitable dilution, and volume for dissolving the substance.


Bacteriostatic Water v. Sterile Water

Because they are two distinct compounds, bacteriostatic and sterile water, people should not be confused with them.

Sterile water is more expensive than bacteriostatic Water since it is fully germ-free.

Sterile water comes in single-dose vials. Only before it is opened is the single dose sterile water genuinely sterile. The liquid is regarded as tainted the instant air touches it. The same holds when putting a tool or object in a single dose of sterile water.

Bacteriostatic sterile waters are made to be recycled. Since the bacteriostatic agent or preservative inside the Water, most frequently benzyl alcohol added, inhibits the growth of bacteria or fungi, it typically doesn’t matter whether a tool, instrument or air comes in contact with the Water.


Important Precautions to Remember

Although benzoyl alcohol and its use in bacteriostatic water are generally considered safe, there are a few precautions that must be taken to make the best use of non-pyrogenic Water.

Bacteriostatic Water and Newborn Children

Since 1983, it has been understood that benzyl alcohol exposure in pediatric patients can have serious consequences. Since that time, benzyl alcohol and items containing it, like as bacteriostatic sterile waters, have been outlawed nationwide in newborn facilities by the Food and Drug Administration.

The administration of benzyl alcohol “produced severe metabolic acidosis, encephalopathy, respiratory depression with gasping, and maybe additional anomalies leading to the death,” according to a report by the American Academy of Pediatrics. [R]


How do I properly administer bacteriostatic water for injection?

You must use the bacteriostatic sterile water correctly, or you will waste your money. How you use the bacteriostatic water will depend on what you use the solution for.

Working in a research laboratory on a development project will require you to use bacteriostatic water differently than working in a hospital.

Individuals working in a research laboratory/clinical data collection setting could administer bacteriostatic sterile water with a pipette rather than a syringe.

Before inserting the pipette tip into the bacteriostatic water, gently squeeze the bulb. Slowly release your grip on the pipette’s bulb until the desired level is visible in the pipette tip. Insert the pipette tip gently into the bacteriostatic water.

Bring the pipette tip out of the water slowly while maintaining a relaxed grip on the pipette’s bulb. Insert the pipette tip into the mouth of the destination vial/bottle and slowly expel bac water.


Side Effects of Bacteriostatic Water

There are a few potential side effects aside from the extremely rare allergic reaction. Local tenderness at the injection site can be caused by the benzyl alcohol in the bacteriostatic water.

When drugs are added to bacteriostatic water, side effects may occur. Fever, abscess formation, venous thrombosis or phlebitis, tissue death, and infections are examples.


Storage Guidelines for Bacteriostatic Water

The storage rules should be the same whether your bacteriostatic water vials have rubber stoppers or flip-top lids.

If a bac water vial has already been opened, it must be used within one month.

The benzyl alcohol will then lose potency, allowing bacteria to grow inside the vial.

Stacking anything on top of the bacteriostatic water vials is not recommended.

Stacking will weaken the lids or vial bodies, resulting in unexpected cracks and leaks.


Frequently Asked Questions

What is benzyl alcohol?

Benzyl alcohol is a clear, colorless liquid with a pleasant aromatic odor. Because of its polarity, low toxicity, and low vapor pressure, it is a useful solvent. Because of these properties, benzyl alcohol is ideal for the preparation of bacteriostatic water.


What is a bacteriostatic preservative?

A bacteriostatic preservative is a substance that prevents bacterial growth and reproduction without killing the organism. The bacteriostatic preservative in bacteriostatic water is benzyl alcohol.
