Frequently
Asked Questions

What formulation of source materials should I purchase?

Stallergenes Greer source materials are available in 3 different formulations, each with its own benefits. Most extract manufacturers use powdered raw materials, while in vitro diagnostic manufacturers often prefer lyophilized or freeze‐dried extracts. The suitability of materials for a particular use must be determined by the customer.

What is the shelf life of the source materials?

Freeze‐dried extracts and materials typically have a shelf life of up to 10 years (5 years for venoms). This means that one lot can often be used over the course of several years, which can reduce lot‐to‐lot variability. In addition, the shelf life is dependent on your intended use of the material and whether it is stored refrigerated or frozen. The freeze‐dried extracts and materials we provide are stored as listed on the Certificate of Analysis (COA).

What quantity of a specific source material should I request?

That depends on your needs. Please contact a Customer Care Specialist for assistance.
