"ever order contamed syringes?"

It happens but you should also take the grain in account. Make a test jar (do not inoculate to see if any contam grows) on your next batch and try the doubtful syringe again in another jar.

I got some contaminated syringes from sporehaven they were loaded with bacteria.They were more plentyful than the spores I was working with and I did not get a clean culture even after doing several agar isolations just more contams.It really sucked but they are no longer in biz.I think he was dumping old inventory cause I got one of those buy some get some free deals then he went out of biz and quit answering E-mails and the site went down.
Oh well no big it helped me realize that I have good tek for making clean spawn as none of my controls contaminated only the ones I inoculated from that batch of syringes.
It happens, but the proof process is a good check of the rest of your te k,so try to make it a positive even though it really sucks to be stung ducats for crap syringes.

Back in the day, I ordered 3-4 different strains from a vendor [unnamed].  They all were contaminated.  Because it's hard to 'prove' a syringe is contaminated [and not faulty grain/grain prep] I innoculated several petri dishes with a drop from each syringe, incubated those labelled petris, and mailed them back to the vendor :wink: .  I received several replacements and some extras.

So it definitely happens, but more often the syringe is not to blame.  Use negative controls to be sure.
