Contaminated syringes?
    #1801240 - 08/11/03 12:30 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

A buddy of mine made 3 syringes using a print from a reputable vendor here. He did them using a homemade 'glove bag' using a large turkey oven bag and sterile gloves. He showed them to me and the spores seem to be suspended in the solution in strands. Its almost like they are stuck on a spider web where they can float around but not settle, yet you can't see anything connecting them together. I'm pretty sure these are contaminated, but does anyone know what could have caused this?

they could have germinated in the syringe this happended to me once and it gets to big that it can't fit throught the needle so I wouls use them while you can if yo can.But it may also be contams like you said.

yea thats weird, but i guess it makes some sense.  it's been about four days since they were made.  there's only one way to find out for sure though :smile:

if your friend used bottled or spring water, it most likely had nutrients in it that allowed some of the spores to germinate. so what you probably have is a spore mycelia sryinge.

I had a syringe exactly the same which I made from a print, it was left over when I ran out of spawn jars, then I forgot about it for a week or so, and it looks exactly as you describe, anyhow I innoculated a jar with it yesterday to find out, so I guess I will know soon.

BTW: None of the other jars from that batch got contam'ed.

tap water was used. so i guess the jars will begin colonizing faster since the spores have already begun to germinate? will putting them in the refridgerator slow the growth?

I used tap water too, but I sterilised it the the PC with the spawn jars, and yes a low temp will slow the growth, but I would say put your syringes in a ziplock bag, or two if the fridge is used for food, all sorts of nasties live in fridges (and I am not just talking about the muchies :>)

you probably just scrapped to hard and got srands of the paper in your syringe. It happens...
Unless it was a print on foil that is most assuradly the cause~

They were prints on foil. However, they are being 'tested' as we speak, so for those who are interested check for an update in a few days.

Not even four days of germination, and twelve jars are showing this amount of growth at the inoc points  :grin:

good things happen when you use spore juice generously. youonly need 2 spores for it to grow but there isbig advantages in using more.

more substrains to begin with, more diversity in the population.

more surface area is covered with spores, more points to start at and less time colonizing because of it.


--------------------
Holy shit people; COMMON SENSE! we were all born with it where did it go?
maybe theres a tek out there to explain how to use it!

Yeah, that's true... also , if you use lots of solution, generally the stronger spores win out meaning more rhizomorphic colonisation... for example I have a jar of Amazonian right now with really rhizomorphic mycelium colonizing one half and really fluffy mycelium on the other... it's really strange :crazy2: . If I'd injected more spore solution than than there would have been a bigger chance of there being some stronger spores on the fluffy side. Oh well :grin:
