We are sharing this information so you’ll know what to expect from the process of preparing a NovoSeven® dose. For full instructions, refer to the FDA-approved patient information and Instructions for Use.

Do not attempt an infusion unless you have been trained by your health care provider or hemophilia treatment center.

Preparing a dose.

First, you’ll need to reconstitute NovoSeven® RT, which comes in powder form. “Reconstitute” means mixing it with diluent to create a liquid. Mixing is easy with MixPro®, the prefilled syringe that comes with every package of NovoSeven® RT.

Once you have washed your hands, choose a quiet place where you can prepare your dose on a clean, level surface, and gather everything you'll need:

  • Alcohol swabs
  • NovoSeven® RT vial, in your doctor’s recommended dose
  • MixPro® prefilled syringe with diluent
  • Vial adapter
  • Plunger rod
