Mannitol filtration

Hi all,

I had a quick question and I'm not sure if I'm thinking about this right so any comments would help me take any next steps to rectify the issue.
So we are sending up our Mannitol vials with 0.2 micron filters (not the infusion set, just the filter) however our order instructions state " Use a 0.2 micron inline filter infusion set." It almost seems that us sending up 0.2 micron filters with the vials and then telling them to use a 0.2 micron inline filter infusion set may be problematic as to what they should be doing. Thanks for any clarification.
