Dear Abcam tech, I have got the ab97098 antibody. In the mannual, it said ab97098 should be stored at 4C. Is it ok for a long time store? Could I aliquot them and store at -20C? I am very grateful if got the answer soon. Best wishes,

Thank you for your enquiry. Most antibodies are stable and can last for anywhere from a few months to several years if stored properly, so we strongly recommend that you follow the storage instructions on the datasheet for the antibody you purchased. These conditions will vary among our antibodies, therefore, it is important to verify the storage conditions for each of our products when you receive them. We guarantee all of our products to work for at least six month from the date of purchase when stored correctly. In the case of ab97098 that is conjugated to biotin we have not tested the stability of the conjugation when freezing the antibody and therefore I would not recommend it. For more information on antibody storage and stability, please visit our Antibody Storage Guide on our Protocols and Troubleshooting Tips page (https://www.abcam.com/index.html?pageconfig=popular_protocols). I hope this information helps. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need anything further and Merry Christmas.
