Spore Syringe question.
    #1228190 - 01/18/03 07:09 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Hi,
What is a good amount of water(ml) to add to a whole spore print in a jar, to make spore solution? How many 10cc syringes should I be able to get from one spore print?
I like the method in the pftek of just adding the water to the foil print in the jar. Has anyone tried this? I'm guessing it has to be better then trying to flake the spores off using a razor blade.
Any help is much appreciated.

If you do use this method of dropping the foil with the print on it into water, I'd recommend using atleast 100 - 150 cc (ml) of water so you could make from 10 - 15 syringes.

I've never tried that method.  I'd think that you'd have a better chance of getting a contam from the foil you put in the water.  I'd personally use the needle from the syringe wiped with Isop. alcholo  to scrape the spores into a sterilized shot glass.  Have your syringes premade with sterilized water then just scrape enough spores in the shot glass to make one syringe at a time.  You'll have to play around with it a little to get the amout of spores you want.

I came up with an idea that works GREAT. I use a 1/2 pint sterilzed jar, then I fit as many caps as I can in the bottom. Then I put a filter disk over the top, and secure it with a band. This lets the moisture escape through the filter disk, and the caps drop spores, shrink and dehydrate. This leaves the spore print on the bottom of the jar. If you leave the caps in there a couple days they'll be really dry. Then, I remove the caps with sterilzed tweezers. Then I put 3/4 cup of sterile water in there and replace the filter disk with a sterile jar lid with a hole punched in it. Then I cover the hole with a piece of electrical tape. Shake it all up and there you have it. When you are ready to use it, peel back the tape and suck the solution out into a sterile syringe. I found this to be the best method. When I tried doing it other ways, sometimes it would get too moist and I left the caps in too long and they got gross and mushy. I've used this method for several batches. It works great!
3/4 cup = 177.441 cc of solution. Then I used 4 cc of solution per cake. (1 cc per hole)

I've never tried foil, but I had a print on wax paper and I just put it in the jar and added water and shook it up and it worked fine.

The spore foil I am using is from the FSRE so I think it should be very sterile. It came in a ziplock plastic bag. I could always wipe the reverse side with isypropol.
If I do decide to scrape, how much should I scrape to get 1 syringe full? I imagine its very hard to go by colouring with that amount.

I would think it would be hard to measure out enough for just 1 syringe. I would do it the way I said, then store the jar in the fridge in a dark drawer until you need the rest. I did this and used it over 6 months later and it worked fine.

Depends on the size and darkness of the print.

A 1/4" x 1/4" square off the print would make a good syringe.

good luck!
