Storage Information

Storage
Prior to reconstitution store at +4oC. Following reconstitution store at -20oC if preferred.

This product should be stored undiluted.

Storage in frost free freezers is not recommended. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the protein. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
Shelf Life
3 months from date of reconstitution.
