Storage at -20 °C is recommended in order to guarantee maximal shelf life of our PCR Enzyme products. Date of expiry at -20 °C is stated on the label of each product. In order to avoid the time-consuming process of thawing it is also possible to store all Ampliqon DNA polymerases, master mixes, buffers and PCR reagents at +4 °C for up to 6 months. RealQ Plus master mixes can be kept at + 4°C for up to 3 months.
We strongly recommend shipping on dry ice to ensure maximal shelf life. Our recommendations are based on our stability studies performed at different temperatures. Upon arrival, it is always important to ensure that the products are transferred to optimal storage conditions. To see our stability studies look here.
