I agree with Renee. It will proabaly be at least as costly to have to re-validate everything!

Perhaps yes or perhaps no, that is the problem.

Advise? (Costly advise?): discard everything and get an alarm system for your fridge after you repair it (or get a new one)..

My refrigerator died over the weekend.  This fridge had most of my antibodies and IHC reagents.  When I came in, the temperature inside the fridge was a balmy 37C!

Do you think any of my reagents are still usable?
