antibody shelf life?
Posted 14 July 2004 - 06:35 AM
i've inherited some old antibody samples (anti involucrin from harbor bioscience and anti keratin 17 from zymed) dating from 1998-1999-2000. they were stored in the fridge, according to the datasheet. what do you think, does it make sense to test whether they're still working? or shall i throw them away?
thanks for any suggestion.

Please remember that most reagents have longer shelf life than what vendors recommended for understandable reason. check this article
