can't continue offering the drug until the FDA endorses changes to its assembling techniques. Few
organizations make propofol in light of the fact that it is muddled to make. It's an emulsion — a mix of
two fluids that don't mix together synthetically — and it must be put away painstakingly in light of the
fact that microorganisms can sully it more effortlessly than different drugs.
