Infusion by the numbers.
You’ll be administering your factor by intravenous injection, either at a hemophilia treatment center, a health care provider’s office, or at home after you’ve received training. Here are the steps for infusing on your own:
- Check the reconstituted Esperoct® for particulate matter and discoloration. The solution should be clear with no particles. Discard if either exist.
- Invert the Esperoct® vial of reconstituted factor and slowly draw the solution into the MixPro® syringe.
- Detach the syringe from the vial adapter by turning the syringe counterclockwise.
- Attach the syringe to the luer end of an infusion needle set. Do not administer Esperoct® in the same tubing or container with other medicines.
- Infuse the reconstituted Esperoct® intravenously slowly over about 2 minutes. Accidental sticks with a needle can happen. If injured, seek immediate medical attention.
- After infusion, safely dispose of the syringe with the infusion set, the vial with the vial adapter, any unused product, and other used materials.

Your questions, answered.
Question: Is a 2-minute infusion even possible? It takes me much longer just to clean up after I infuse!
Answer: Good question! Two minutes is the length of time it takes for the infusion itself and doesn’t include set-up before infusion or clean-up after infusion.
Question: I’d like to self–infuse but have never been trained. Where can I learn how to self–infuse my factor?
Answer: Your best first stop is your healthcare provider who can answer this question as someone who understands you, your hemophilia care plan, and the facilities available in your area. You can often find infusion training at your hemophilia treatment center (HTC), specialty pharmacies, or from your physician.
Do not attempt to do an infusion yourself unless you have been taught how by your healthcare provider or hemophilia treatment center. Please see Prescribing Information and Instructions for Use for more information on administration.
