To avoid running out of Erythropoietin BRP it has been decided to limit its use to the assay of the monograph on Erythropoietin concentrated solution (1316) exclusively. Erythropoietin BRP will be replaced by Erythropoietin for physicochemical tests CRS for the following tests:
The monograph on Erythropoietin concentrated solution (1316) will be corrected accordingly and published in Supplement 8.4 (official publication date: 1 October 2014).
Users are requested to switch to Erythropoietin for physicochemical tests CRS for the above-listed tests.
