Question
Are the CL17 reagent damaged by being frozen?
Summary
Frozen CL17 reagents
Answer
The reagents are not damaged if they become frozen. To defrost and prepare for use, allow the bottle to sit at room temperature until it is thawed, then mix by inverting repeatedly. If crystals remain that will not go into solution, gently heat the bottle by placing it in warm tap water and mix well until the crystals are dissolved.
