Answer

Thank you for your email.

I spoke to the experts in the lab about the solubility issues with this product.

They would like to make your customer aware that ab120012 has a low solubility in water. Therefore it may need prolonged stirring/agitation and warming to 40-50 degrees in order to get it into solution.

It might also help if it is less concentrated, for example 1mM in water.

I can confirm that we are not aware of any issues regarding light sensitivity.

I hope these tips will help dissolve ab120012. Please let me know if the problem persists.

Answer

Thank you and your customer for taking the time to contact us. I am sorry to hear your customer has had difficulty disolving this product.

Reviewing this case, I would like to offer some suggestions to help optimise the results from ab120012:

1.) This product is soluble in water to 5 mM, in ethanol to 100 mM and in DMSO to 100 mM. Could you customer please let me know how much water was added to the 10mg? I can confirm that mistakes are easily done with these calculation from my own experience and your customer may want to double check.

2.) Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour. I also suggest to warm the reconstituted solution to 23C (room temperature) to enable full solvation

We are happy to offer this technical support. In the event that a product is not functioning in the applications cited on the product data sheet (and the problem has been reported within 6 months of purchase), we will be pleased to provide a credit note, free of charge replacement or refund.

I hope this information is helpful, thank you and your customer for your cooperation. Should the suggestions not improve the results, please do not hesitate to contact me again with the further requested details.
