Smelly birdseed
    #1098112 - 11/30/02 11:55 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

My birdseed experiment fell to bacteria before it even started to colonize so I pulled it from the incubator and chucked it. Four days later several PF tek jars that were in the same incubator are also contaminated. What do you think the chances are that it was the birdseed that contaminated the PF jars? The birdseed jar had a 3/8" hole with a filter disk, the PF jars were taped and sealed.

I know that it is theoretically possible, but how likely is it?

Opinions?

Did you use the same set of syringes to inoculate all the jars?

I still have the syringe of mycelial solution that I used to inoculate the bad BRF jars. I used that same syringe to shoot a jar last night, so if this jar also contams as well I will know the source.

My main concern was the possibility of cross jar contamination. I have a lot of experiments that, while in different incubators, are still in close proximity of one another. If cross contamination is a real threat then I need to re-organize.
