Myxredlin (Insulin Human) in 0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection is the first and only ready-to-use insulin for hospital care settings.

Please read the full Indication(s) and Important Risk Information, and the Package Insert for full Prescribing Information.

Myxredlin is provided in a standardized concentration of 100 units/100 mL in Baxter's Galaxy flexible plastic container, which features an extended storage of 30 days at room temperature 77OF (25OC) or 24 months refrigerated (36OF to 46OF [2OC to 8OC]) in its original carton and protected from light until its administration.

The 30-day room temperature storage puts Myxredlin at the point of care, enabling it to be stored outside the pharmacy in care areas, near nurses and their patients, which may help to streamline pharmacy and nurse workflows. In comparison to compounding , ready-to-use Myxredlin may result in fewer calls from the nurse to the pharmacy. This also may help nurses manage multiple insulin infusions that could result in fewer STAT or urgent orders for the pharmacy to prepare. Furthermore, the 24-month refrigerated shelf life of Myxredlin helps ensure a reliable supply of insulin IV infusion that may simplify inventory planning and management.

The convenient, ready-to-use presentation of Myxredlin also means hospital pharmacists do not have to manually admix or batch insulin, potentially leading to less compound solution waste for hospitals.
