This is very useful indeed. I’ll include the items that we have from the list you referred, and ask if average aluminium content per product can be checked by our labs. My understanding is the concentration increases with time and peaks near expiry date of product, will this have a significant effect on the results get from our lab in case that is possible?
This is very interesting, actually knowing the aluminium content in the different source ingredients, allows auto-calculation of aluminium in final PN bag (utilizing auto compounders’ software). Knowing its toxicities, aluminium should be kept below a defined minimum for the patient population you serve, like stated in study attached by Mohammed, especially for the neonate patient.
The study also points at FDA mandating manufacturers to state that the aluminium content is less than 25 mcg/L in LVP and state the aluminium content in their SVP product’s package insert. We tried to find this information in the products we have here, but none was found even after contacting the local agent.
