Gonna start my PF tek pretty soon. Tips on keeping contam free
    #16983776 - 10/07/12 02:28 PM (1 year, 10 months ago)

I have my procedure down pretty well and feel completely ready to start but I am concerned about contamination. I have made a still air box and know the basic ways to try to prevent contamination in my area but i wanna make sure that I don't have to throw away a cake :frown: So, basically I would like to know how to be contam free as possible with this. How problematic is it? Thanks

i just started as well but i had no contams in my first 9 jars by doing all my noccing up in my closet, in a SAB. i lysol'd the shit out of the closet and just outside of it, took a shower, put on clean clothes, used gloves, wiped down my entire work station and my arms and hands with 70%iso and then after noccing up, left them in the SAB and have had no problems, oh and i put a second shirt on just over my nose and mouth as a mask. the biggest thing i didnt do was shaking the syringe between every jar :facepalm3: 2 of my jars didnt germinate at all, one of them germinated at one noc point, 2 of them only germinated at 2 noc points, and 2 only germinated at 3 noc points, the other 2 all 4 points germinated nicely. but good luck man!
oh yeah and i steam sterilized for 110 mins, which may have been a bit long but it sure as hell got em sterile!
edit: i also used micropore tape and nocced straight through the tape while flame sterilizing my needle between every jar using a homemade alcohol lamp. (outside of the SAB of course!)

dont do it in the bathroom like som people say. even if its clean the bathroom is the most dirty place in the house. make sure theres no air flow in the room so airborn contams dont fly into your jars
