The protein (1 mg/ml) was lyophilized with no additives.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Melanotan-II in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized Melanotan-II althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution MT-II should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
