Preparation and Storage
• Store the vial at 2°C–8°C. The vial should not be frozen. Protect from exposure to light. The beads are stable until the expiration date shown on the vial label when stored as directed. Do not use after the expiration date. Do not mix the contents of one kit with another. Target values can vary between lots and this could result in inaccurate detector settings.
• After dilution, the beads are stable for
– 1 hour at 18°C–25°C
– 8 hours at 2°C–8°C
WARNING Protect the diluted bead suspension from light. Some of the dyes used to manufacture the beads are very light sensitive. Fluorescence levels can change if the beads are exposed to direct light for longer than 20 minutes.
