KOĀTE is administered intravenously (into a vein) after reconstitution. KOĀTE is supplied in powdered form and must be mixed with sterile diluent prior to administration.1
Every vial of KOĀTE comes with a Mix2Vial® transfer device, which allows for needle-free reconstitution.1
Ask your healthcare provider about the Mix2Vial® Practice Kit for step-by-step KOĀTE administration instructions and demonstration supplies so you can become comfortable with the reconstitution process.
Dose and frequency of infusions vary from person to person. Your doctor will determine the appropriate amount of KOĀTE for you or your child based on the specific clinical condition.1
