Question: Are my Chromium Connect reagents safe at room temperature overnight or over the weekend?
Answer: Upon receipt, Modules 2 and 3 must be stored at -20°C as indicated on the packaging. Gel Beads need to be stored at -80°C. Once the reagents have been thawed and loaded on the deck, they are held at stable temperatures. Reagents loaded on deck for a run must be discarded after the run is completed as they are single-use only. The gel beads and SI-PCR plate can be returned to the appropriate temperatures if not fully consumed. If optional QC steps are selected, instructions for removal and storage of Gel Beads are provided in order to minimize the amount of time the Gel Beads sit on the deck. Gel Beads should not be left at RT for more than 24hrs if they will not be fully consumed.
