Possible contamination?
    #1940345 - 09/22/03 12:52 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Hey all:
So there are 8 jars: 4 PESA, 4 EQ. A syringe for each group of 4. Syringes were about 8 mo. old. EQ started strong but now where the mycelium was, it looks brownish (actually almost a clay color - brown red... few *tiny* spots of greenish tint) with whiter mycelium around the edges. PESA look good. Is this contam, lack of water, what? Is there anything that can be done, or are the jars done for? Also, should the jars be removed from the incubator... can contams spread?

Note: The jars were not heated in the incubator for 2 days, and the temperature dropped to 70 degrees.

Funny - at first, it seemed that the PESA wouldn't be doing well because the jars looked waterlogged...

Toss the EQ jars, they are definitely contaminated. Remove them from the incubator ASAP.
Well, the only thing i can think of, other than a possible faulty step on you part, is the syringe being contaminated. Remember all PESA are good.

Well dear me. I hope the contams didn't spread. Out of curiosity, do you know what kind of contamination that might be? It's weird because it looks like the vermiculite magically changed color rather than something growing on it.
