    If itís in a sealed vial, itís storage life is so long (years) so as to be a non-issue.

    Follow up question, OP, please forgive me as it is kind of related.

    How long can you safely store bacstat after you have used it (pierced the top the first time)? The vials I get typically say 28 days, but was wondering if anybody had any input.

    I tend to use it longer than that.
    There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...
    A minimum of 100 posts and 45 days membership required for source checks. Source checks are performed at my discretion.

    I wouldn't go far off the 28 days. Germs and bacteria are going to do their thing no matter what.
