How to flame sterilize in a glovebox? (noob question)
    #11179959 - 10/04/09 01:45 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

How do you guys flame sterilize the needle tip between injections in a glovebox?
I am always worried I'm going to set myself on fire because of the alcohol in the glovebox at the same time.
So is it better to flame the needle between injecting jars or alcohol swab the tip with alcohol instead?

If you have fire in the gb, don't have alcohol in there. Ever.

This.


I found having a glass of alcohol in there worked. Dipped tool in alcohol in the toolbox, shake tip of tool, use tool, put tool in alcohol glass.

yeah just follow, and practice sterile procedure and it greatly reduces your chances of a contaminant.

You can swab it with alcohol and then flame it outside the box. If you flame the needle outside the box until the needle is glowing, you will have enough time to put it through the arm hole before it cools. I wouldn't want to ever mess around with fumes, still air, and fire...thats asking for trouble.

Is it really necessary to use alcohol if you flame sterilize?

no not really, flaming it will kill everything if you get it glowing, but I like to get the black stuff off the needle when knocking up multiple jars.

So theoretically wouldn't it be better to flame it in the glovebox and remove the needle from the box between jars and swab it?
Or am I completely wrong and it is better the other way around?

Theoretically you would have an alcohol lamp; they don't blacken the needle.

Can you just use an alcohol lamp inside the box?

Rubbing alcohol isn't that volatile ime.

The above post is fictional, hypothetical, or downright nonsensical.

You don't have to swab it if you don't want to, you can flame it in the box if you have let it air out sufficiently of fumes. Depending on the size of your glove box and the number of jars inside of it, it is easier I find to do it outside the box as you have more range of motion, space and you don't have to worry as much about fumes and open flames.

the purpose of the STALE air box is simple. you want the stale air. if you vent the box, obviously you let new air in from some where. just dont be lazy. there is no need to vent your STALE air box.
