I've moved both of your threads to the biology study help forum where hopefully you'll get more responses.

They are typically stored in a solution containing an antibiotic to prevent the valves getting infected with pathogenic microorganisms. During surgery, the body body being operated on is very susceptible to infection. This is also why patients are asked to complete a course of antibiotics after undergoing surgery.
