Inquiry: I notice that in the latest batch of ab11884 the storage recommendations have changed from 4 degrees to 'aliquot and store at -20 degrees'. Is this due to some sort of change in the formulation or recent testing indicating better preservation of the antibody at this temperature? Thanks

Thank you for contacting us.
The formulation for this product has not changed. Recent tests showed thatab11884 can be stored at 4ºC as well as at -20ºC, this is why the storage information has been updated. In general the life timeof an antibody storedat -20ºC is about 5 years. As shown on the datasheet, there is no need to dilute the product but it is recommended to aliquot it and to avoid freeze / thaw cycles.
I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
