The package containing my Flowflex tests was left outside in freezing temperatures for a few hours – below the storage temps. Will it affect the tests performance, and should I throw the tests away ?

Our R&D Dept. has checked and confirmed that the FlowFlex kits that were frozen are still working. Make sure the entire kit is back to room temperature and that the extraction buffer is thawed and back to liquid solution form before the kit is used for the testing.

The package containing my Flowflex tests was left outside in very high temperatures for a few hours – above the storage temps. Will it affect the tests performance, and should I throw the tests away ?

Our R&D Dept. has checked and confirmed that the FlowFlex kits that were exposed to temperatures above average (up to 65 °C / 150 °F) for a few hours are still working. Make sure the entire kit is cooled back to room temperature and there is still a least 1/3 of an inch of buffer in the tube before the kit is used for the testing.

I still can’t find the answer to my question, what do I do?
