Abstract:  The compounding of intravenous admixtures requires knowledge of the packaging and container-closure issues, including their composition, physicochemical characteristics, and tendency towards producing particulates as well as sorption issues. In this article, we will look at containers, closure systems, and sorption issues related to compatibility and stability. Part 11 of this series will discuss particulates in intravenous admixtures.
