Most of your antibodies are provided in a buffer with sodium azide, is it possible to get them without it?
A: In theory it could be possible to send the antibody without sodium azide, but we really do not recommend that. If we leave sodium azide out we will not take any responsibility about the product after it leaves our premises and we are not giving any expiry date for such products. Also the price will be higher and lead time longer. Since it takes only a simple dialysis step to get rid of the sodium azide we really recommend our customers to do that step just before they start their work.
