Peptide storage guidelines: Lyophilized peptides should be stored in a sealed container with desiccant at -80°C (at least -20°C) in order to minimize peptide degradation. The peptide can be stored for several years under these conditions, which also prevent bacterial degradation, secondary structure formation, and oxidation.
Opening the package: Prior to opening the package containing the peptide, it is best to equilibrate the material to room temperature in a desiccator. Failure to warm the peptides can cause condensation to form on the product upon opening the bottle, reducing stability.
Weighing peptides: When weighing out a quantity of peptide, warm the package as noted above and perform the measurement as quickly as possible. Store all unused peptide at -20°C or less. Sequences containing cysteine, methionine, tryptophan, asparagine, glutamine, or N-terminal glutamic acid will have shorter shelf lives than other peptides.
