Each cartridge of Humatrope should be reconstituted using the

needle aims the stream of liquid against the glass wall of the
cartridge. Following reconstitution, gently invert the cartridge up

SHAKE. The resulting solution should be clear, without particulate
matter. If the solution is cloudy or contains particulate matter, the
contents MUST NOT be injected.
cartridges can be used in conjunction with compatible CE marked pen
injection systems. The manufacturer’s instructions with each
individual pen must be followed for loading the cartridge, attaching
