Heparin sodium, as an important anticoagulant, is widely used in clinical medicine and biological research fields. Many manufacturers in the market produce heparin sodium in its original state as powder, which is added to test tubes for drying after preparing a solution. However, during the process of using heparin sodium powder, its performance may sometimes be changed due to storage details. What is the problem? How should it be stored? Let's take a look below.
Heparin sodium powder is a relatively stable compound, but storage measures need to be taken during storage and use to ensure its quality is not damaged. The following are the storage conditions for heparin sodium powder:
1. Temperature: Heparin sodium should be stored at room temperature. The recommended storage temperature is around 25 degrees Celsius to avoid exposure to high or low temperatures, as this may cause decomposition or agglomeration. In addition, to ensure the stability of storage at room temperature, constant temperature equipment can be used.
2. Avoid light: Heparin sodium should be stored in a dark environment. Direct sunlight may cause chemical reactions and have adverse effects on its stability. Therefore, it should be stored indoors to avoid long-term storage outside.
3. Dry environment: Due to its initial state as powder, it can absorb moisture in high humidity environments, leading to crystallization or degradation. Therefore, it should be stored in a relatively dry environment. If there are special circumstances, desiccants can be considered for use.
4. Sealed container: It should be stored in a sealed container to prevent moisture and other impurities from entering the air. In a sealed state, it can protect the reagent from external environmental pollution.
Heparin sodium powder usually has a long shelf life, and its quality can be well guaranteed under suitable storage conditions. According to the manufacturer's recommended shelf life, note that storage conditions can maintain validity for 1-3 years.
Heparin sodium, as an important anticoagulant, has a wide range of applications in clinical laboratories. To ensure its quality and stability, it is necessary to store it properly and follow the correct storage conditions in order to extend the shelf life of heparin sodium powder and ensure optimal performance when needed.
