For information on how to prepare BIOSTATE using the Mix2Vial™
BIOSTATE is a freeze-dried preparation of human coagulation factor VIII / von Willebrand factor complex concentrate. Factor VIII (FVIII) and von Willebrand factor (VWF) are essential proteins for normal blood clotting.

BIOSTATE is used to:
  • replace FVIII in people with haemophilia A, a bleeding disorder in which there are reduced levels of FVIII.
  • replace VWF in people with von Willebrand disorder, a bleeding disorder in which there are reduced levels of VWF.
People with low levels of FVIII or VWF may have difficulty forming blood clots, and these clots may take longer to form. Sometimes, people with low levels of FVIII or VWF may bleed spontaneously into their joints or muscles.

BIOSTATE is supplied as a freeze-dried powder which is dissolved with Water for Injections and then injected into a vein. Each vial of BIOSTATE is packaged with one vial of Water for Injections and a plastic Mix2Vial™ filter transfer set that is used to transfer the Water for Injections into the BIOSTATE vial.

BIOSTATE is only available with a doctor's prescription.
