Not scientific but I should think if you store it in a cool dark and dry area it should last at least 1 year and probably longer.

A good recommendation. And look at the expiration date! I would not depend on it past the date.

Colder temps usually reduce the speed of chemical reactions. So the freezer MIGHT make a difference. The expiration on those is usually a few years unless you got some from someone that does not move that much.

If you are talking dry powder that has been opened, but not mixed, forget it as it probably wont last long....

I would not expect to ever see legitimate HCG in anything short of an ampule or sealed vial. It just would not be legit. "power" even as a generic term should probably not refer to HCG I am guessing.

Its not the act of mixing with water that starts the clock ticking on HCG, it is the opening and exposure to oxagen of any type ( I guess based on basic chemistry).....
