heparin for CRRT

The Prismaflex set that we use for our CRRT therapies has a heparin syringe pump attachment, requiring heparin to be prepared in a syringe (20mL size)and sent to the nurse, which poses the obvious risk of mixup with many other products sent in 20mL syringes.
Would anyone share how they prepare/send their heparins for CRRT?
Thank you!
