It has been brought to the attention of the subcommittee that the need to store the gel under an atmosphere of nitrogen is not critical to ensure a shelf life of at least five years. Instead, protecting the dyed gel from light and avoiding elevated temperatures can result in a similar shelf life without the need to store under an atmosphere of nitrogen, as air oxidation does not appear to impact the performance of the dyed gel.
