half life of Dynal magnetic beads?

What is the half life of Dynal streptavidin-coated paramagnetic beads? We
use them to prepare single strands from biotinylated PCR preps. Sequences
are wonderful when everything is fresh. Are there storage techniques which
will increase bead lifespans? This is important, as they are rather
expensive, and we can't afford to keep buying them every month before the
previous batch is used up.

Cheers,

Eric.
