The fridge broke down for a week and during that time the ISAC kits and reagents were not refrigerated. Will this have caused any problems or is the product still ok to use?

Most probably the product is still ok. We made a stability test, where the product was shown not to be negatively affected. The transport simulation protocol: Storage at +32°C for one week, during that week the test material was moved to +2°C to +8°C for 18-24 hours at two different occasions, but not in the beginning or in the end of the transport simulation.
