STORAGE OF SEQUENCE RXNS.

Mornin' all

Just a quick question.

I currently store all sequence rxns (cycle sequenced dye terminator ABI
etc) at -70. Now I think I started doing this because, someone probably
told me that the dried down pellet would last longer etc (ie. Upto a 
month,
maybe three).

Obviously what I want to know (I'm trying to get an independent stand 
alone
freezer for the facility) is ......

How does everyone else store their stuff ?

Someone has just told me stuff will last at least 2 weeks at -20.


As an aside (mail me separatley) Hints and Tips for the 377 required. 
Gels,
run conditions, software etc (I'm getting a new toy soon and would like as
little hassle as possible).

If I get a VERY good response I'll make some sort of FAQ out of the 
replies.

Thanks in advance

Ian
