Approximately how many freeze thaw cycles are we limited to?
Asked on Feb 13 2012
The damage caused by freeze/thaw cycles can vary from antibody to antibody. We do not have any specific information in regards to this antibody but we have found in general that these cycles should be restricted to 2-3 cycles in order to maintain the activity. If you are aliquotting the antibody at -20°C or -80°C you can always take out an aliquot and once you have used what you need, store the remainder at 4°C for 1-2 weeks.
I am sorry that I could not be of more help. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us again.
