Calcium Gluconate is an inorganic salt and doesn't "degrade" like other molecules. It becomes dissociated in solution and is stable for years. The problem is that no one has studied electrolyte stability over time. The issue is going to be sterility over time, especially since you want to store these drugs at room temperature.

We had this same question with KPhos. We made room in our refrigerator in our critical care areas(controlled by ADS) so that we could take advantage of the longer BUD.

Yes, I've considered placing a second refrigerator(ADS) controlled for this purpose but was hoping could get some data to support room temperature since the ADS towers have the room for the volume needed (30-60 bags/day)
