Long term storage IMC antibodies

Post by mattbliss90 » Wed Jan 17, 2018 11:44 pm

Does anyone have any suggestions for a buffer for long term storage of hand conjugated IMC antibodies? I know Fluidigm recommends Boca Scientific who has antibody stabilization buffers, however that vendor is not in my companies approved vendor list and I'm looking for alternatives.

We are using since many years an antibody stabilizer from Candor (https://www.candor-bioscience.de/en/pro ... lizer.html) for antibody storage at 4C.

Hi. How long can the antibodies be stored at 4 degrees with antibody stabilizer from Candor?

Dear monirathhav,

This topic has been extensively discussed previously, please find a link here

Many antibodies will still work well after 1 year, but some do not. We never really figured out what makes the difference.

Best,
Bernd
