A strength of the study presented in this paper is that multiple methods for particle size analyses for compounded PN solutions were performed, thus presenting more complete data over the spectrum from 1 nm to >50 microns. This study identifies concentrations of CaCl2 and NaPhos that appear to be compatible in neonatal PN solutions containing TrophAmine and can allow for provision of adequate intravenous intakes of calcium and phosphorus.
