I have a question regarding storage of two antibodies bought from you,a b13830 and ab13833. Due to a misunderstanding, the antibodies have been stored at +4 C, even though the product sheet recommends storing at –20 C. The antibodies have been stored at +4 C approximately two weeks. Do you know if this will affect the products negatively?

Thank you for your message.
Reviewing the recommended storage details for these antibodies, I can suggest they should not be significantly affected by short term storage for a week or two at +4oC. However, I would recommend to aliquot and freeze them as soon as possible.
We would recommend that products are stored as recommended on the datasheet as soon as they are delivered. This will ensure the product remains stable and that we can continue to provide our guarantee.
I hope this will be helpful. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
