|Storage||Lyophilized Octreotide although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C.
Reconstituted Octreotide is best stored refrigerated at 4°C for 2-7 days and below -18°C for longer.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protien (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
