For information on how to prepare MonoFIX-VF using the Mix2Vial™
MonoFIX-VF is a freeze-dried preparation containing human coagulation factor IX, a protein which is essential for normal blood clotting.
MonoFIX-VF is used to replace factor IX in people with haemophilia B, a bleeding disorder in which there are reduced levels of factor IX. People with low levels of Factor IX may have difficulty forming blood clots, and these clots may take longer to form. Sometimes, people with low levels of factor IX may bleed spontaneously into their joints or muscles.
MonoFIX-VF is supplied as a freeze-dried powder which is dissolved with Water for Injections and then injected into a vein. Each vial of MonoFIX-VF 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 MonoFIX-VF vial.
MonoFIX-VF is only available with a doctor’s prescription.
