Step 2) turn opened sterile water ampoule upside down and insert insulin syringe in it.
Step 3) withdraw 1ml (100 IU) of sterile water into insulin syringe.
Step 4) remove flip off cap from melanotan 2 vial
Step 5) pierce insulin syringe's needle through the melanotan vial rubber cap so needle is aiming toglass side of the vial, not directly to melanotan powder. Slowly inject 1 ml (100 IU) of sterile water intomelanotan vial.
Step 6) Stir vial gently until the white powder has completely dissolved in water.
