How should MACS Cytokines be reconstituted and stored?

MACS Cytokines are provided as lyophilized (freeze-dried) products. It is recommended to reconstitute lyophilized cytokines with deionized sterile-filtered water to a final concentration of 0.1–1.0 mg/mL in a minimal volume of 100 μL. Further dilutions should be prepared with 0.1% bovine serum albumin (BSA) or human serum albumin (HSA) in phosphate-buffered saline.

Upon reconstitution, store working aliquots at –20 °C or below, and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles. Shipment or short term storage f the lyophilized products at room temperature will not alter the performance.
