Best Antibiotic for Spore Syringes?
    #1495013 - 04/26/03 03:11 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I have access to:

Kanamycin
Gentamycin
Ampicillin

Which should I use for my azure syringes?

I don't really think it should matter too much unless you plan on autoclaving the antibiotic/h2o prior to adding the spores. Gentamycin can be autoclaved without thermally degrading. Personally, I would go for the cheapest.

I suppose I could look up which one has the broadest spectrum of activity...anyone want to save me the time?

If you can't autoclave the one that you think would be ideall, see about other methods of sterilization.  Sterrad machines, for example, work great on sensitive materials, tho I'm not sure about liquid?  ETO might work, but I'm not sure.  Also it's really bad for ya :smile:

I don't think he'll be autoclaving a spore syringe :wink:

Do you think I should sterilize my syringes before or after I put the spores in?

Because I cannot send cultures in the mail. I can send syringes. I want to suspend the spores in solution so I can distribute them to those who are interested. I have provided prints in the past, but was not able to make enough from this past season.

It?s proven to survive sterilization, it?s widely used and tested.

but he's not sterilizing it. He just wants to add some to a spore syringe. Josh, do you have all 3 currently? or are just able to get all 3? maybe it's worth trying 1 syringe of each. And innoculating some jars. Before you waste any prints.

>innoculating

* inoculating

But does he know that the antibiotic is completely clean, free of mold spores?
I mean, If you?re not completely sure, then sterilizing would be a good thing, and if you sterilize, it?s a good thing if the antibiotic can stand the sterilization.

that's absolutely true, i'm just used to the gent that I use, which is sterile.

If the gent isn't sterile packaged, then it would be good to sterilize water/antibiotic mixture 1st, and yes - then it would be best to use gent, so it doesn't breakdown. However, if he has sterile ampules or whatever - then it might still be good to go with gent, because it has been time tested in mushroom cultivation, i'm not sure if the others have?

I have abiotic GS solution in sterile vials, and powdered kanamycin and ampicillin. I plan on puting the powdered forms into solution and filtering with a micron filter before use.

You all will be my experiment. Muah..ha..ha..Ha!!!

For what it's worth, I have used and am using kanamycin with Hericium erinaceus, Pleurotus ostratus, P. eringii, and shiitake *cultures*. I tried amp, but it allowed a little bacteria growth. I'll try the gent someday....
