Storage and handling
For short term storage keep refrigerated at temperature ranges between 1 and 6 deg. Celcius. For long term storage freeze the antibodies at -20 degrees Celcius.
Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing as they may denaturate the polypeptide chains of the antibody and lower its reactivity, specificity and sensitivity. For antibodies that are in liquid form or reconstituted lyophilized antibodies small amounts could become entrapped on the seal or the walls of the tube. Prior to use briefly centrifuge the vial to gather all the solution on the bottom.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by AbELISA Antibodies they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
