What is your question regarding reconstituting the medication?
Expert:  William Pflugfelder replied 8 months ago.
A picture being worth 1000 words, there is an excellent video on you tube showing reconstitution of saizen. while the system is sealed you can manipulate as needed. Once you remove the vial from the device what you have is what you've got. As with any injectable medication, when you are drawing up the dose you should use aseptic technique and inject a volume of air equal to the volume of you dose to displace the dose. Hope helpful.
