Myxredlin and phosphate buffer

Our institution is considering moving to Myxredlin insulin bags from Baxter, but it was recently discovered that the product contains a phosphate buffer. Lexi-comp shows compatibility w/ calcium at the y-site, but when checking with Baxter to confirm, it sounds like they haven't conducted any studies on compatibility of Myxredlin with IV solutions - so no data to support. Wondering if any other institutions that use this product were aware, and if so, how have you handled this. Thanks for your consideration!
