Preparation and Storage
• Store the reagent at 2°C to 8°C. Reagent in opened or unopened vials is stable until the expiration date shown on the vial label. Do not use after this expiration date.
• Do not freeze the reagent or expose it to direct light during storage or incubation with cells. Keep the reagent vial dry.
• Store BD Trucount tubes in their original foil pouch at 2°C to 25°C. To avoid potential condensation, open the pouch only after it has reached room temperature and carefully reseal the pouch immediately after removing a tube. Examine the desiccant each time you open the pouch. If the desiccant has turned from blue to lavender, discard the remaining tubes. An unopened pouch is stable until the expiration date shown on the packaging. Do not open and use tubes after this expiration date. Use tubes within 1 hour after removal from the foil pouch. Use remaining tubes within 1 month after opening the pouch.
