storing dialysis tube(bag) - (Oct/29/2008 )

after activation of dialysis tube, how it should be stored? and for how long can it be stored?

if Sodium azide 3% is applied for storing, what problems may occur?


we store at 4C in dih2o, indefinitely.

3% azide is very strong, usually use less than 0.1% (we don't add it to our dialysis tubing storage).


I always store them in EDTA 1 mM pH 8, at 4ÂșC. In the same solution previously used to boil then.
