Should be... Don't know for sure. Here is what I did long time ago:

dissolve Iodogene in chloroform, aliquote in glass tubes (1 tube/reaction; we used 
200 ul volume), completely dry out under vaccum (a regular fume hood works as 
well but much slower; the film of iogogene is well visible), close tubes tightly 
or wrap them with parafilm, store at -20C. This way nobody in the lab, ever, 
noticed any difference between fresh and 6 months old tubes. 

Hope it helps,
