Using lighter on syringe
    #1495489 - 04/26/03 11:19 AM (14 years, 8 days ago)

My friend started to heat the syringe with a cigarette lighter. But he stopped because the syringe started turning blackish and was afraid it would hurt the spores or make the syringe ineffective. Is this normal? Any thought?

You are flaming the needle only, correct?  :grin:

The black is harmless. Use an alcohol lamp if you want to avoid seeing it.

Try using an alcohol pad. Just tear the packaging in half and pull the pad half-way out. The packaging is flame retardant (would be a huge fire hazard if not) so you can hold the little packet, light the pad with a lighter and use the flame from the burning alcohol to sterilize you syringe.

The black carbon build up is no real problem.
Heat the end of the needle till it glows, then using
a cloth soaked surgical spirit wipe the needle before use.
Make sure the cloth is very clean and holding enougth disifectant
else you make the flame sterilisation usless.

This or just dont worrie about the soot as its should be
sterile soot after the burning anyway.
Good luck with it :-)

ps the higher above the flame the less soot, and its still possible to get the needle to glow this way.

Just wiping the needle with 70% Isopropyl works for me.
