Hypothetically speaking, say someone were to buy a couple of years' worth of test. What is the best way to store that? Does it need to be refrigerated, or would a "cool, dark place" suffice? Is there a shelf-life on this stuff.
vaccum seal the extra viles and buy a insulated bag they sell at walgreens for medications,they are cheap like 12-15$ and put the vaccum sealed vials in the insulated bag. I have a few of them I keep my meds in.
They put a 2 year shelf life but honestly even if 3 years had gone by the gear would still be good I think some say the potentcy drops maybe 5% per year after 2 years. So it would stay good for quite awhile.
I wouldn't buy more then you need even though they might have a bulk deal going on. It is always just best to buy what you are going to use,maybe buy just a extra vial or two but don't go to overboard. I know the bulk deals are tempting but just buy what you need, you never know how you will react to the gear and you never know what new brand may come out.
