Re: [Histonet] CAP regulations regarding storage of antibodies in frost free refrigerator freezers

From:Rene J Buesa

  About antibodies storage I only know about the following regulations:
  1-for refrigerator storage (nowadays all refrigerators are frost free) there has to be a log with daily temperature records, and the antibodies cannot be stored above their shelf expiration date;
  2-aliquots of concentrated antibodies (for any type of procedure) can be stored in deep freezers; the only safety regulation is that they cannot be thawed and refrozen.There has to be also a log with the daily temperature.
