We have an abcam antibody product, and I am inquiring if it is possible to find out the expiration date of it? (expiration is not on vial). The product is: Ms mAb to Cystathionase, ab5473. Lot: 860547. Thank you!

Thank you for contacting Abcam regarding expiration dates of our products.
At Abcam, we guarantee the effectiveness of our products for a period of 6 months from date of delivery. Should you experience any issues using one of our products in the manner outlined on our datasheets during this time we offer scientific support, replacement or refund.
I did search for the lot number that you provided and found that a product with this lot number was purchased on 22 January 2011 for UNM. While no longer under our Abpromise, this product should remain stable for up to 5 years if upon delivery it was aliquoted and stored at -20°C or -80°C, taking care to avoid repeated freeze / thaw cycles.
I would like to encourage you to take advantage of our Abreview program. It takes just a few minutes to leave a review and you can collect Abpoints which you may redeem for Abcam products or Amazon gift cards while at the same time sharing information about the product with your colleagues worldwide.
