The half-life of the enzyme iProof HF Mastermix has been extended from 6 to 12 months. The research and development department has re-evaluated the results of the stability tests of the current formulation of this mastermix and found that its stability is greater than with that originally specified.
What is the benefit?
The laboratories of the pharmaceutical industry that have developed their protocols have requested a product with a longer half-life. This was the main reason why the re-evaluation of the half-life of the product was carried out.
Did the formulation change?
No, it is the same product.
When will this information be included in the inserts of the product?
The manufacturing department will be including this information in the iProof HF Mastermix insert this month.
The insert will be available on the Bio-Rad website as soon as possible, and it is estimated that it will be published by the end of February.
Will all iProof enzymes be affected by this change?
No, the half-life of the enzyme iProof GC Mastermix will remain for 6 months. The catalog numbers that will be affected by these changes are:
From the GXD division in the US a campaign is being planned highlighting the stability feature of the iProof HF mastermix.
