There is only one parameter that is important. The present suspension of liposome encapsulated clodronate is containing ca. 5 mg of clodronate per 1 ml of the suspension. The dimensions and other parameters of liposomes in the suspension are varying (not between different suspensions, but in one single suspension). Given that the clodronate enters the macrophage with the liposomes as Trojan horses, their dimensions are not important, only the total amount of encapsulated clodronate injected.
The suspension of clodronate liposomes should never be frozen, nor be exposed to extreme high temperatures. Store at 4-8 degrees Celcius. If there is a risk that liposomes are stored below zero or at temps over 30 degrees Celsius during transport, do not order liposomes. We cannot control the storage conditions during transport and e.g. in the offices of Customs.
When ordering liposomes, costs and expected shipping date will automatically appear on the order form when clicking on it. This is to show you this information before sending us the order. Please be aware that this shipping date does apply only to orders of clodronate liposomes and control liposomes that can be taken from the standard batch. Specific requirements, if applicable, may take more time.
