How Should It Be Stored?

Unopened insulin aspart vials, cartridges, and pens should be stored in the refrigerator. It is best to keep the vials refrigerated once they are opened, although they may be kept at room temperature (less than 86 degrees Fahrenheit). Once you start using an insulin aspart cartridge or pen, you must not keep it in the refrigerator (it must be kept at room temperature). All forms of insulin aspart are good for up to 28 days once opened, after which you must discard any unused portion.
 
If you use insulin aspart in an insulin pump, you must discard any unused portion in the pump, along with the infusion set (the reservoir, tubing, and catheter) within 48 hours. IV bags with insulin aspart must be discarded after 24 hours.
