just to be sure, if i was going to sterilize a syringe, should i use which of the following:
Isopropyl Alcohol 50%
or
Rubbing alcohol 91% (ISOPROPYL)
or
FIRST AID ANTISEPTIC Isoproyl Alcohol 91%?

or any of them?

They are all the same kind, Isopropyl. Use the one with the highest percentage, 91%.

A prof told us in class that isopropyl 70% is actually better for disinfecting than is 100%.

"Alcohol's mechanism of action is still unconfirmed, but theories for how alcohol might kill cells include denaturing of cell proteins, interfering with cellular metabolism and destroying cell membranes. In the absence of water, proteins are not denatured as readily by alcohol, and this explains why a solution of 70 percent alcohol and 30 percent water is a better sanitizer than 100 percent alcohol."

Thx for the link Anno
