About USP Water for Injection
USP Water for Injection is water prepared from water that complies with drinking water regulations. The purifying process removes impurities from this water using a blend of ion exchange, reverse osmosis, filtration to 0.2 micron and UV treatment.
USP Water for Injection is a grade of water which meets the requirements of the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP), an internationally-recognised standard whose specification guarantees a particular quality level. Other internationally-recognised standards include EP (European Pharmacopoeia), BP (British Pharmacopoeia), and JP (Japanese Pharmacopoeia). ReAgent also supplies EP Water.
At ReAgent, we have carried out a validation of the purification process to ensure that the water produced meets with the requirements specified by the USP. We also test the purified water on an ongoing basis in order to ensure that the system is continuously producing water that meets the requirements of the USP.
Properties of USP Water for Injection
Grades of water differ slightly, but all water produced to USP standards is low in impurities such as heavy metals, nitrates, chlorides, and sulphates. It will also meet particular conductivity and pH specifications.
USP Water for Injection has to comply with the specification as prescribed in the USP Monograph for the specific grade of water supplied.
USP Water for Injection also meets a bacterial endotoxin specification. The equipment and procedures we use at ReAgent are designed to control microbial contamination and remove endotoxins from our source water. We also store and package the water accordingly.
Applications of USP Water for Injection
Different grades of water are suitable for different pharmaceutical purposes. The United States Pharmacopoeia states that USP Water for Injection can be used “as an excipient in the production of parenteral and other preparations where product endotoxin levels must be controlled and in other pharmaceutical applications, such as cleaning of certain equipment and parenteral product-contact components.” USP Water for Injection can also be used:
- In the processing, formulation and manufacture of pharmaceutical products
- As active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs)
- As analytical reagents
- In certain cleaning applications
It is important to note that neither USP Water for Injection nor USP Purified Water is sterile, and therefore are unsuitable for parenteral use. For parenteral use, USP Sterile Water for Injection is required.
