newbie, pretty funny

Well everything was going great until innoc time. Now due to impatience I injected either too little or too much. Hopefully 1ml is 1cc, is this right? Lol anyway I used one syringe to innoc 4 bags at 2cc per bag. It was a 10ml syringe so I'm hoping I got enough in. However as I was starting my second bag, the plunger wouldnt budge! Son of a...I never read about THAT! so I was super freaked out and then I took a close look at the needle. Some substrate got jammed in there! so in my panick state I took a match sterilized the needle which made a really fuinny sound and then pushed as hard as I could on the plunger which sent a few maybe even 3 ccs toward my face. Yeah that sucked. So I ruubed the needle down with some rubbing alcohol and continued, right pissed off. Well if only one bag is innoc'd at least I know why. I felt that I was really clean the whole way through but I don't know I am sure something bad is going to come from this... anyone have any jammed syringe stories?

That is normal that some substrate gets jammed in the needle. Just pull the syringe out towards you by a few cm and reinsert.

I usually just keep pushing the plunger until the substrate is pushed out (while in innoc. hole).

my technique (seems foolproof as it works every single time) is to insert needle then slowly back out the needle as I plunge. this method allows you accurately "dose" and doesn't cause those big expulsions from built up pressure.
