  • Handling

    Solvents listed may be unsuitable for use in biological experiments. These solvents are intended to enable solubilisation and mixing of components. We recommend that biologically unsuitable solvents are removed prior to solubilisation in experimental media.

    Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. 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.
