Hey, it was the pre-filled. Thats why I was having trouble. It could have been 18 hours that it had been at room temperature. I had no idea. I actually got the one that you mix over there.

Union Medico

Hey, this product is actually harder to find than I thought. So far the only thing I could find is an e-mail address for Union Medico (the makers of the auto-injector).
