Re: Antibody spec. sheets

From:Gayle Callis

Is it a legal concern?  I would assume a new lot of antibody, properly
tested against an in use, older lot (to insure identical staining) would
allow you to toss old spec sheets once that particular lot is exhausted or
expired. Even though in research, that is what is done here or be found
crushed under a paper avalanche someday.  Once the old lot is gone, it
doesn't really apply to what you are using and you should be referring to
the current lot's spec sheet.    


with old lot being used up eventually, At 03:24 PM 11/9/01 -0500, you wrote:
