Flaming needle inbetween injections..... PROBLEM
    #1161659 - 12/22/02 08:04 AM (18 years, 7 months ago)

I read that inbetween injections of each jar, you should flame steralize your spore syringe with a alcohol flame.

Wouldn't doing this heat the needle to a temperature that kills bacteria, but also the spores? So my question remains, should you have to wait a few seconds after flaming the needle before you stick it in the grains to inject?

simple, but important quesiton. thanks

everything i say is bull shit

Will the typical 70% isoprol alcohol work for swabing the needle?

I make my own syringes and always flame my needles with just a lighter and have never run into any problems. I also flame sterilize to pull abit of air into the syringe but swabbing the needle with alchohol works as well so I've heard.

Just make sure that theres no peices of substrate like grain or rice flour in the point of your needle, cause sometimes they get plugged, and the stuff inside can rot.

Flame the needle and stick it right in. The air cools it fast, and most of the heat that the air does not remove will dissipate in the substrate.

Yea, once you take the needle out of the flame it cools very quickly. I didn't use rubbing alcohol, just an alcohol flame.

I didnt have the time and patience to go out and buy alcohol, so i used this hand sanitizer that contained 62% Ethyl Alcohol and Isopropyl alcohol with water and gelatin and i didnt get any contams. im probably just insanely lucky anyway...

Hmm... i sterilize my needle when i start and do all the jars, never had problems, just lucky i guess, but as long as your jars are PC'ed and sterile, things should be cool, cleaning the needle between jars is still a good idea, but overkill i'd think!!

the part about grain stuck inside the needle, well, that grain should be sterile and will only be there for a few seconds until you push it out with more solution, so i see no problems there!

my 0.02 canadian.. so that's what.. 0.015 us?
