About IMFERON INJECTION 2ML
IMFERON INJECTION 2ML belongs to a class of ‘haematinics’ primarily used to treat anaemia.

Anaemia is a condition in which the body does not have enough red blood cells for carrying the adequate oxygen required to various body tissues.
IMFERON INJECTION 2ML contains ‘Iron’ an essential body mineral and nutritional supplement required for the formation of the red blood cells to carry oxygen to other body cells and tissues. By combining with a protein in the blood called haemoglobin, iron helps carry adequate oxygen to various body parts.
