While the optimal long term storage temperature has been determined to be 2 to 8 °C due to the COVID-19 pandemic, recent internal studies have supported that the media can be stored at room temperature (RT) without decreased performance. Data permitting, the length of RT storage shall continue to be extended as the real-time findings are collected, and applied to each lot. For the length of allowable RT storage (post retrieval from 2 to 8 °C conditions), please refer to the respective Certificate of Analysis for the lot-specific information.
