Why are Redivue nucleotides shipped at ambient temperature?
A. Redivue nucleotides are quite stable at room temperature, but it is generally recommended that they be stored at 4oC upon receipt. We have done extensive testing of the stability of Redivue nucleotides at temperatures up to 37oC and have found that they preformed well even after 7 days at this temperature. Therefore, one should not worry about shipments of Redivue nucleotides which arrive warm or may have spent several days at ambient temperature during shipping.
