  1. Avoid multiple cycles of freezing/thawing of the stock reaction buffer no more than 3 times.
  2. Thawing should be performed at temperatures not exceeding 10°C.
  3. Recommended procedure is to divide the provided reaction buffer into smaller portions and preserve them at -70°C for long-term.
  4. Temperature of -20°C should be used only for short-term storage.
