Very helpful but I still get new kits after a year of being opened. I note the AP site doesn't say how long after opening.

It says how long after the bottling date though.




To determine bottling date check the lot # on the reagent bottle. The last 4 digits are the month and year of bottling.

Example: 33A1201 would = a bottling date of December 2001.
