Superb Quality, Absolutely Sterile

I bought 5 units of Mountainside Medical'10ml sterile water for injection. The units are sealed with easy access through a membrane with a syringe. Before each reuse, I take an alcohol pad and wipe down the area before inserting a new sterile syringe. Thus ensures that the sterile water inside is not contaminated in any manner. This was my first of many orders from Mountainside. Thank you Mountainside Medical for making it economical and easy to order your quality medical supplies.
