antibacterial/antifungals in autoclave bags
    #1576254 - 05/25/03 01:49 PM (17 years, 11 months ago)

hey shroomites
recently i aquired several autoclave bags from work thinking they would be ideal for preparing bulk substrate.  these bags are rated to withstand temps up to 140C and after autoclaving a green "biohazard" ensignia appears to show you that the bag has been treated at  proper temp/pressure to sterilize whatever is in the bag. Now this is my problem, does anyone know if these bags contain any antimicrobials or antifungals? after i PC it seems like the dye has run fom the ensignia....ie, if there is any extra water in the bag it is tinted green. does anyone know much about autoclave bags.....should i ditch them and go back to trusty old jars??? i have prepared  a bag of poo, a bag of corn and a bag of millet but none seem to be caatching? so i'm thinking it's something to do with the bags....
lates :smile:

None of the autoclave bags we use do that, but isn't the logo on the outside of the bag? It's just to tell if enough steam has been processed; no antimicrobial stuff; kind of like autoclave tape. I wouldn't let any die get inside of the bag, though -- who knows what it might do (turn your shrooms green?)

Maybe reccomend a new supply source....
