Spore Syringes? A Quick Question.......
    #1053811 - 11/14/02 10:10 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

I wanted to used the jar method of making a syringe, by scrapin the print into a jar (presterilized) and then injecting presterilized water into the jar and then sucking it back out with the syringe. I just have a few questions:

Using an average sized print, how many syringes should be able to made? This is important b/c I would need to know how many ml's of water to inject.

Has anyone used this method? If so, how did it work out? It seems like a good way to keep spore solution until you need a syringe. You just has to keep the jar closed and airtight to keep in form contam's.

~Peace

I never worry about using a jar, a shot glass will sufice. I only do one print and syringe at a time. One to one ratio works great for innoculation success and short colonization time. I haven't had a contaminated jar since my second attempt.

yes that way is ok. i've only made spore syringes a couple times because I like mycelium syringes. But I took a baby food jar and poked a hole in the lid close to the side. Scrape a quarter or half print in and seal it, or you can drop the whole print in there then seal it. Inject your sterile water, shake it all around and suck it back in. But if you already have some mycelium you should look into spawning.

I was just looking into this b/c I think I'm gonna get a spore print from one of the FSR's. I also need to pick up some syringes. Anyone know what gauge needle to use?
