Re: [Histonet] Expiration dates

From:"Piero Nelva"

Hi Amy

I use VMS Benchmark XT and when the antibody has expired I "create" a new 
lot number by putting (EXP1) at the end of it and adding one year to the 
expiration date.  THen add the antibody dilution to the prepkit using the 
"Refill" option rather than the "Partial" option.  As long as you're using 
appropriate controls with your staining runs, there is no problem extending 
the life of the antibody.

Hello all,

My supervisor wanted me to ask everyone who's posting about the
expiration dates of antibodies:  How can you use expired antibodies on a
stainer such as a Benchmark-which will not allow you to start the run
due to expiration dates on the containers?
