Preparation and Storage
Stability and Storage
Shipped at 4°C. Store at -20°C. Store under desiccating conditions.
Constituent: 99% PBS
This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.
ReconstitutionIt is recommended to reconstitute ab125753 in sterile ultra pure water not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Upon reconstitution ab125753 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
