Typically, we store dried-down reactions for less than a week at -20
degrees. However, we've had reactions stay at that temp for over 3 months
with no loss of signal. We also had one of those "unofficial" experiments
where samples sat at room temp for 3 days (in the dark...long weekend). I
think the most important thing is that the STAY dried-down and should be
kept away from long exposures with ambient light (the dyes reduce).
