Storage Recommendations

The TailorMix PhiX Control Library is stable when stored at -20°C. Storage at -80°C has shown improved stability and is recommended for long term storage.

Best Practices

• Do not store the TailorMix PhiX Control Library in frost-free freezers.
• Aliquots should be made to allow for use to minimize repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
• Determine the appropriate aliquot volume based on usage.
• Aliquots that are in use can be stable for up to one month if kept on ice at all times during use and stored at temperature of -20°C or lower when not in use.
