What are optimum storage conditions for a gBlocks™ HiFi Gene Fragment?

IDT ships gBlocks HiFi Gene Fragments (IDT) dry unless otherwise requested. While dry, they should be stable almost indefinitely.

After resuspending in a high-quality, molecular-grade water or buffer, pH 7.5–8.0, you should store the DNA at –20°C and if necessary, aliquot to avoid more than 2 or 3 freeze-thaw cycles. Adding a carrier to your resuspension and dilution buffers can help prevent any potential decrease in product concentration.
